From Frozen Peanut Butter Sandwiches to Bluetooth-Connected Robot Toys

From frozen peanut butter sandwiches to Bluetooth-connected Furbys, the August 2016 kids trends reveal an interesting emphasis on the return of once-popular products. Indeed, many of the products that millennials enjoyed as children have now been updated for a new generation to enjoy.

In terms of food, many of the pre-packaged snacks enjoyed by children in the 80s and 90s have returned in new forms. For instance, crustless PB&J sandwiches have been updated for the increasingly health-conscious generation to include whole grain bread, real fruit spread and legume-based pea butter. Other once-popular snacks such as McCain's Smiles now come in the shape of popular emojis.

Beyond the food industry, toy companies have also been working to resurrect older products that were once enjoyed by millennials. As the August 2016 kids trends reveal, there are a number of toys that have remained popular across generations, such as LEGO. On the other hand, once-popular toys such as the Furby are making a comeback with the addition of high-tech features.
