Turning playtime into a fun educational experience is at the heart of these February 2015 youth ideas. Many of the examples revolve around technology as parents seek for ways to integrate it into their children's lives in productive and fulfilling ways. Another way that technology is positively affecting younger generations is through health and fitness.

For instance, one of the February 2015 youth ideas involves a biometric shirt for kids that reveal insights about their daily activities. Another example lies with Skechers Damager's Game Kicks, which encourages children to move around more in order to activate its special properties. The February 2015 youth ideas further reveal that parents are interested in value-based toys that touch on cost, not just education or fitness. This teaches children to be more frugal and imaginative.
