Top 75 Life Stages Trends in April

From Comfort-Focused Baby Loungers to Vehicle Repair Play Sets

— May 2, 2020 — Life-Stages
These life stages trends in April range from comfort-focused baby loungers to vehicle repair play sets.

Notable examples for babies include the Babymoov Cosydream Smokey lounger -- a back-supporting product that is specially designed to prevent flat-head syndrome among infants by ensuring even skull pressure -- along with the Micuna Cocoto Crib. The product is launched by Spain-based Ximo Roca Design studio and boasts a Japanese origami-themed shape that is modular and comfortable for babies.

The PlanToys 'Motor Mechanic' analog toy educates kids about automotive repair and is another standout. Rounding off this list is The Park Plaza London Riverbank's child-centric hotel that offers suites "by families for families." Each suite encourages creativity and boasts kid-friendly furniture like beanbag seating along with chalkboard walls allowing for in-room DIY artwork by guests.
