Top 100 Life-Stages Trends for 2019

From Baby Carrier Fanny Packs to Candy-Themed Apparel

— February 18, 2019 — Life-Stages
These 2019 life-stages innovations range from baby carrier fanny packs to candy-themed apparel. While examples like the 'TushBaby' fanny pack are designed to store a mom's essentials while eliminating body strain with a compact and ergonomic design, FILA Korea's Chupa Chups collaboration celebrates a global candy brand while appealing to Gen Z consumers.

Other standouts to note include the 'Fyto' composting toy kit. The innovative toy addresses food waste awareness among young kids and is a product the entire family can interact with. Similarly, Hasbro's FurReal Munchin' Rex is another notable example that eats cookies and broccoli in order to educate children about different food groups and daily nutrition requirements,

When looking at Millennial, Boomer and Senior-friendly innovations, examples to note include Instagram-friendly and interactive candy installations along with Supreme x Louis Vuitton's ad campaign starring mature model Maye Musk. Other standouts include 'Papa,' a companionship platform that works to connect seniors with "grandparents on demand."

For more life-stages innovations in the year ahead, check out Trend Hunter's 2019 Trend Report.
