From Programmable Owl Robots to Modern Life-Sized Playhouses

 - Jan 29, 2017
The 2016 toy trends that are most prevalent are toys that work to engage and educate children, as well as products that are more modern and sophisticated for children to interact with.

The 'Oomiyu' robotic owl has an endearing design that appeals to children's visual preferences while also giving them a unique opportunity to learn. The owl can be programmed by children to perform different behaviors and games, and gives them a playful introduction to S.T.E.M fields that are so crucial in innovation today.

Doherty Design Studio created a life-sized playhouse for children that rivals some homes with its contemporary design. The playhouse is complete with pivoting circular doors, a mesh loft and plenty of lounge and play space.
