toy trends

Based on both the Hong Kong and London Toy Fairs, it’s all about drones, internet-connected toys, robot pets, augmented reality games, and STEM kits.  Also popular, licensed products from blockbuster movies (e.g. Batman vs. Superman, Ice Age 5).

Getting especially great reviews from show attendees: Micro Drone 3.0, Teksta Toucan, upgraded Meccano Meccanoid robots,and SAM Labs Internet of Things learning kits.

Also of note at the Hong Kong Fair, significantly more baby and preschool products as a result of China’s new two-child policy.

Gizmag.com did a great recap, with over 70 pictures, from the London Toy Fair. Link here.
