From Child-Friendly AR Headsets to Matching Familial Footwear

 - Oct 28, 2018
These October 2018 Life Stages trends range from matching familial footwear to child-friendly AR headsets. While Mockas Loafers creates handcrafted footwear in sizes for fathers and sons -- with each pair made from Peruvian leather -- 'Holo Cap' is a conceptual headset that aims to make playtime a more interactive and educational experience for kids.

Another product to note is the LÍLLÉbaby infant carrier which boasts a durable, convertible and weather-proof design that is ideal for families who enjoy spending time active and outdoors. Additionally, innovations like Megan Menne's adorable line of handmade felt toys is designed for kids while drawing inspiration from pop culture iconography that parents will identify with. Her most recent release is a collection of Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Scones. Each felt-made item encourages hands-on play versus screen time while referencing Starbucks' iconic autumn beverage.

Other October 2018 Life Stages trends to note include seamless banking apps for younger generations who seek to be more financially independent and Gen-Z makeup brands that offer a diverse collection of fun and age-appropriate cosmetics.
