A baby toilet training seat with a built in iPad holder has been named the worst toy of the year.
The Campaign for Commercial-Free Childhood described CTA Digital's iPotty as "the worst of the worst" in its round-up of 2013's commercially-driven toys.
"Members are appalled by the escalating push to insinuate screens into every aspect of young children’s lives," the US charity wrote on its website.
Long-established toy company Fisher-Price also came under fire from the group for its iPad Apptivity Seat, aimed at "Newborn-to-Toddler".

Fisher-Price, which is owned by toys giant Mattel, could not be reached for comment.
