From Social Media Fashion Dolls to Retiree Travel Assistants

 - Feb 16, 2019
These February 2019 life stages trends range from social media fashion dolls to retiree travel assistants. The month's most notable toys include both low-tech and connected examples like the 'Eugy' range of 3D eco paper toys along with the 'Luka' literary robot. While Eugy products are made from 100% recyclable materials and with rice-based ink, the Luka robot can read thousands of books while translating different languages.

Other toy innovations to note include Disney Pixar’s voice-activated Toy Story 4 range from Thinkway which consists of resposnive Buzz Lightyear and Woody action figures and The Period Game -- an educational board game which aims to break the stigma surrounding menstruation among kids and teens.

When it comes to Senior innovations this month, Intuition Robotics' ElliQ robot aims to make the lives of the elderly easier by acting as an intuitive home assistant, or as a virtual source of connection and companionship with loved ones. Electronic Caregiver's 'Addison Care' platform is another standout example that was showcased at CES 2019. The platform aims to "provide support for everything from medications and care plans to social experiences and emergency response situations."
