Independent toys are becoming increasingly popular among parents tired of shopping at overpriced big box stores, and looking for something slightly different for their kids. Independent toys are often far more imaginative and thought-provoking than their big box counterparts, while occasionally appealing to moral standards associated with environmentalism and fair trade.
A lot of independent toys are unabashedly quirky and extremely niche. Toys with this sort of character are not created as often by big-name toy companies simply because they don't have the same mass appeal and won't sell as prodigiously.
Therefore if your kids' toy interests are more niche, or you're a parent simply looking to stimulate their kid by giving them different kinds of toys, you might want to scope out the independent toy landscape.
