Sophisticated Toy

Nostalgic children's toys are being converted to cater to adult demographics

Implications - Familiar products like puzzles, LEGO, toy cars and toy blocks were once specific to younger demographics, but are now being reformatted to cater to adults through upgrades in purpose, design or their educational elements. This shift works to open up the consumer base for brands that specialize in toys, while serving adult consumers' desire for products that develop their skills, and simultaneously cater to their interest in nostalgic forms of play.
