Virtual Storytime

Children's storytime experiences are made virtual

Trend - Parents are keeping their children occupied in their free time with virtual storytime experiences. Products and services in this space include everything from speakers that tell stories to Christmas storytime specials.

Insight - Millennial parents often rely on technology to enhance the child-rearing process, which they view as having multiple benefits. It takes some of the learning responsibilities off of busy parents that are balancing their professions with child and home care, and introduces children to technologies they'll be using for the rest of their lives in both school and in their careers.
Workshop Question - How can your brand ease parental burdens?
