Storytelling Toy

Children's toy brands offer interactive, creative forms of storytelling

Trend - Storytelling for children is becoming more interactive, with toys that offer creative forms of expression and methods of telling children stories. These items include everything from mixing physical toys with voice-controlled tech, to QR codes attached to toys that retell their backgrounds.

Insight - The use of smart or interactive tech in children's development remains popular, particularly among Millennial parents who see technology as an opportunity to develop children's technical and creative skills from a young age. Straying from more traditional approaches to child-rearing in this way helps give children the skills they'll need in a world that's dominated by tech in both work and play.
Workshop Question - How could your brand prioritize educational recreation for children?
