Education and exposure play a huge part in the top 2014 youth trends as much as technology and imagination. A social concern about the concept of nature versus nurture has seen a rise in gender neutral and gender-challenging products for children. This provides parents and guardians with additional tools to raise their kids in as accepting an environment as possible.

On the flip side, the top 2014 youth trends focuses heavily on encouraging imaginative play. Although this might seem like a natural direction for designers, artists and companies as a whole, the popularity of Disney movies, superhero comic books and other fantastical outlets have led many to embrace this genre in very enthusiastic ways. This is especially evident in the different interpretations that result from such experimentations.
