From Interactive Programming Toys to Candy-Flavored Bubbles

 - Mar 17, 2018
Diverse species of animals, from orca whales to house cats, are known to toy with their live prey once they've made the catch, so we should consider the March 2018 toy trends — and indeed, the existence of toys in general — a win for humanity's innate compassion.

Last month held the American International Toy Fair, the world's largest toy convention. It welcomes toy makers and brands from all corners, and it highlights both the best toys of today and some enticing concepts for the future. One of the most notable trends, both at the toy fair and over the past year or so at least, is the push for toys that are not only fun but also educational. In fact, STEMtrunk is a new service that lets parents rent new STEM toys on demand, giving kids access to a broad educational playscape.
