The children or the vitamins?

That's not the argument. The argument is should a company be selling a weapon, designed for children to learn to shoot, in appealing colors with cartoon characters?

...Is the cartoon logo and name a ploy to get children to buy this gun?
By this argument, no product is market to children since children don't often have money. But, we know that the marketing of products to children is a problem.

Bright colors and cheery cartoon colors are different.

Also, keep in mind that we're talking about the combination of Barbie-tone pink, a cartoon character, and an object designed for children to use.

A yellow Lamborghini would also be brightly-colored, but no one seriously thinks that makes the car marketed to children.
