In the year 2009, we witnessed higher sales for lower priced toy products. This has much to do with the difficult times which forced consumers to be more careful of their disposable spending. Movie-based toys are fairly bankable options and it was no different in 2009. Some have early advantages courtesy of prior built-in awareness of the character.
Experiencing renewed attraction in the children’s eyes, science toys became hip, in and fun for many. Environment-friendly toys also enjoyed attention albeit from a particular market niche. Toys that paid special attention to safety features also gained its own following.
One of the main influence factors in buying toys and playing with toys was the Internet. Toys that incorporated virtual play topped the most preferred list even if it meant having to go to a website. Most of the toys’ exciting features are no longer found inside the package.
When it comes to toys, not one can claim leading by a very huge margin since they tend to cater to different ages and preference. There will always be a market for educational toys, huggable toys, interactive toys and all other toys imaginable because children will still be children no matter how technologically advanced the world becomes. Parents however have become more concerned about safety and this is what manufacturers should bear in mind.
