These August 2015 life stages trends range from customized storybooks and kid-friendly robots to brain-boosting mobile apps and anti-aging smoothies. As technology becomes more advanced, small children are becoming exposed to it from an early age. Tech-savvy parents can embrace the educational qualities of this month`s modern toys that include scholastic robots and educational camera kits -- products that encourage outdoor exploration and creativity.

When looking at the needs of millennial and Gen X consumers, a focus on age prevention is key. While millennials are embracing anti-aging smoothies and youthful skin apps, Gen X consumers are being introduced to age-reversing skincare collections that target a male demographic who wants to look younger.

When it comes to boomers and seniors, these August 2015 life stages trends include government programs that encourage seniors to age gracefully -- with the help of travel vouchers and various other perks -- along with interactive electronics workshops that introduce new technological innovations to participants of all ages.
