Top 100 Life Stages Trends in February

From Parent-Controlled Money Boxes to Fall-Preventing Apps

— February 25, 2018 — Life-Stages
The top February 2018 life stages trends reveal a range of innovations for many different age segments, which range from baby clothing subscription services to apps that help to predict and prevent injuries in the elderly.

For young ones, some of the most notable new releases include everything from high-tech sleeping toys to app-connected smart bottle systems, as well as baby monitors that may be powered by artificial intelligence and voice commands. Just outside of this realm, brands are also launching fashion-forward denim styles and skincare lines expressly for expectant mothers.

Like Millennials, many Baby Boomers are opting to invest in experiences over products through services like Boomer Tours, Funtrek Tours and Home Exchange 50 Plus, which organizes home swaps in desired destinations.
