Realistic Representation

Children look for more accurate representations of themselves in toys

Implications - Virtual and augmented reality technology has lead to the creation of immersive toys that allow children to partake in worlds of fantasy. However, more and more frequently, children -- especially girls -- are looking for more genuine representations of themselves in their toys. Whether it's physical resemblance or behavioral imitation, realistic toys reflect a desire in children for more accurate portrayals of their identity.
