Children spend far too much time in front of computers, smartphones and TVs and less and less time outdoors. Some see nothing beyond their own four walls, school and the supermarket anymore. Many city kids end up believing cows are purple and hens lay colourful eggs. They don’t realise the really exciting adventures awaiting them right outside their front door. “Explore Nature” is to bring children closer to nature again and encourage them to really explore and investigate.
Do your products help children learn more about nature? Then the “Explore Nature” trend is exactly right for you.
- Toys which bring children closer to flora and fauna
- Toys which children can use to grow their own vegetables
- Toys with which children can enjoy outdoor adventures
- Toys which children can use to investigate nature
Cooperation, social interaction and flexibility are skills which play an ever more important role for both the young and old in our society. Only together are we strong and capable of solving tasks and problems. This involves talking a lot with one another, respecting other options and also learning how to compromise. Lone operators do not emerge the victors in the end. We need to work together to win!
If your product line fosters a sense of community, then “Team Spirit” is your trend.
- Toys which encourage cooperative play, indoors and outdoors
- Toys for at least two players
- Toys which involve creating things with others
Just for Fun
Must toys always have a deeper meaning? And invariably encompass a learning function? Sometimes, toys should just be plain fun. Play for play’s sake. Where it’s all about the enjoyment of play. Whether alone, in pairs or in a larger group. Without complicated rules. Because there is no right or wrong. Simply letting imagination and ingenuity run wild.
“Just for Fun” is your trend if your products promise fun and games:
- Toys where the play experience is to the fore
- Toys where ingenuity and dexterity can also play a role
- Toys without fixed rules of play which can be played with in whatever way imagined
- Toys that go over really well at parties, birthdays and other social gatherings
