Updated Plush

Brands are launching plush toys with tech features to enhance the sleep routine

Trend - Brands are creating updated versions of the traditional plush toy to enhance the sleep routine of children. These new features are implemented either as interactive elements or as health trackers, allowing the tech-savvy innovations to bring something else to the table in addition to bedside companionship.

Insight - Millennial parents are open to technology when it comes to raising their children and as a result, many opt-in for a hybrid tactic that pairs traditional upbringings with tech-powered features. As a result, many parents and their children are enjoying an added benefit that extends to convenience, accessibility, cost, and even education.
Workshop Question - How might your brand balance the traditional and the digital in your product/service?
