Top 40 Youth Trends in August

From Goo-Filled Collectible Toys to Vivid Cartoon Backpacks

— August 17, 2019 — Life-Stages
From toys and accessories to tech devices and games, the August 2019 youth round-up features a stunning array of products that are designed to entice children or give parents peace of mind.

On the toy front, one witnesses products that build on traditional modes of play, with slight enhancements. Pixie Belles, for example, feature a degree of customization as their tails are interchangeable and can also be worn as bracelets and scrunchies. Goo Drops, on the other hand, is a line of alien babies that are filled with goo and come with a DIY slime kit for a more hands-on experience.

Aside from toys, the August 2019 youth list features things like the Dokipal AI smartwatch that enhances fitness, communication, safety, and education, as well as the Nutri-Grain kid-friendly breakfast snacks which are concerned with convenience and nutrition.
