From Transgender Dolls to Suspended Infant Hammocks

This year's 2017 March children's trends reveal more inclusive toy options for kids, as well as classic functional items that are designed with a modern twist.

Jazz Jennings is a young transgender teen who has become known for being one of the few publicized trans activists in her generation. The Tonner Doll Company wanted to honor the young LGBTQ rights activist by creating a doll in her likeness, that has also been named after her. The doll works to celebrate diversity and inclusivity, and would make an excellent gift for young children who are also questioning their assigned gender identities – or for anyone who is inspired by the young teen.

The Okoa baby hammock provides a modern, functional bed for infants. Its sturdy wooden design holds a comfortable, hanging crib that gently sways to rock babies to sleep.
