Top 40 Youth Ideas in June

From Ingenious Play Areas to Smart Friendship Bracelets

— June 27, 2015 — Life-Stages
There is an interesting mix between technology and analog products featured in this collection of top June 2015 youth ideas. As parents become more concerned about the amount of time being spent on mobile devices, designers are stepping up to create alternatives that are just as enticing. Many of these other options involve technology in some shape or form, demonstrating just how much these devices are ingrained in people's daily lives.

From smart friendship bracelets to homemade candy kits, these top June 2015 youth ideas are just what the doctor ordered. In addition to those developments, many brands are exploring purely analog products in an effort to truly disconnect children and teens from mobile devices. This is encouraging on many levels.
