These April 2015 toys range from artisan wood cameras to 3D-printed dollhouses that utilize complex technologies for a leisurely purpose. As women;s societal roles continue to evolve, the media's focus on feminism is strongly linked to this month's toy products.

From presidential action figures that pay homage to Hilary Clinton to girl-targeted science kits and coding games, these April 2015 toys prove that today's generation of girls will truly make a difference and break gender stereotypes.

In addition to feminist toys, this list also includes kits and subscriptions that target a number of niche demographics. From first-time faterhood kits to educational toy subscriptions, these examples prove that toys are no longer traditional and that they are instead inspirational and educational for today's youth.

The toy industry's focus on meaningful and connected products embraces the concept of convergance, a business pattern that is discussed in Jeremy Gutsche's New York Times Bestseller, 'Better and Faster: The Proven Path to Unstoppable Ideas.' Whether adapted in business or everyday life, this concept suggests that strong ties to tradition are often surpassed by change and the need for adaptability.
