Top 90 Life Stages Trends in October

From Electric Assist Strollers to Artful Academic Agendas

— October 27, 2019 — Lifestyle
Whether one is an adult, a boomer, a toddler, youth or other, the October 2019 life stages list spotlights a few things for everybody.

Expecting mothers, for example, can enjoy Reebok's premium, high-stretch maternity collection that is focused on comfort. The C-Qing, on the other hand, is an electric, Bluetooth-connected cradle that also responds to voice commands. The tech-forward appliance is sure to alleviate some stress during nap time.

As September was the month when kids went back to school, the October 2019 life stages round up highlights some successful campaigns from last month. Included here is Gap Kids' 'Forward' ad which features budding young musicians. Other back-to-school initiatives are concerned with delivering a more direct impact. Sweetgreens and FoodCorps, for instance, are in the process of promoting healthy school cafeterias.
