Cognitive Coloring

Brands offer imaginative stimulation through conceptual kids products

Implications - As modern parenting is increasingly defined by providing children with well-rounded development though any means necessary, brands are creating toys that specifically look to spark imagination through color theory. Whether in the form of hands-on, educational activities or conceptual packaging that forgoes labels in order to spark imagination, such efforts highlight the importance of cognitive stimulation in later childhood development. This progression speaks to the view of toys as an opportunity to provide the foundation for lifetime learning through play.
