Top 40 Toys Trends in August

From Inclusive Doll Wheelchairs to Connected Speaker Fidget Spinners

— August 26, 2017 — Life-Stages
Like Geppetto and his puppetry, the August 2017 toys trends bring toys and games to life. Whether purely analog or purely digital, toys this month brighten faces and lead to both mental and physical stimulation for kids of all ages.

Since toys are for kids, they represent an opportunity for raising children according to the way people hope society to one day be. The Lammily Wheelchair is one such example. The doll accessory is a miniature wheelchair designed specifically for kids' figurines, giving children a view of different types of people of all abilities. Further, there are plenty of toys on the market that introduce kids to coding in a fun environment, preparing them for the practice that is continuing to grow in importance in the workforce.
