Toy tech trends 2020: trend expert Reyne Rice gives an overview of the latest toy trends in the fields of technology and digitalisation.
Voice-activated assistants and robot vacuum cleaners have been supporting us in our daily lives for quite some time now and are thereby actively influencing the current generation of children. An increasing number of toys also contain digital components and therefore promote development, social interaction and technical understanding amongst our little ones. Reyne Rice, global trend hunter and CEO & founder of ToyTrends, answers questions in the Toy Business Forum at the Spielwarenmesse® 2020 about what the latest toy trends are, what innovations there are in the field of technology, and how children are becoming digital experts.
Our trend expert from the Toy Business Forum 2020 puts the following topics under the microscope:
- Special development tools: programming, coding, robots and machine learning
- Digitalisation in the nursery: new developments in the areas of artificial intelligence, virtual reality, augmented reality, eSports and voice-activated assistants
- New formats: tech toys don’t always need a screen to promote key skills and teach problem solving
- Social media starting in infancy?
