Top 35 Youth Trends in October

From Practical Programming Kits to Matching Familial Footwear

— October 27, 2018 — Life-Stages
The October 2018 youth trends touch upon different lifestyles and aspects of business. From appealing to Millenials and Gen Z through attention-captivating holographic design identities like Obé to infusing value in products through entertainment-filled education like Makeblock's practical programming kit, it is good to always keep in mind that younger consumers look for both aesthetics and functions in a product.

At the forefront of the October 2018 youth trends is Zag Bank — a millennial-friendly banking platform that completely rethinks the way financial institutions operate. Another noteworthy mention is the Whirli box which is a shareable toy subscription service that is affordable and sustainable. By embracing the sharing economy, parents can ship old toys back to the company once the child is done playing with them.
