Implications - With the proliferation of video games and electronic devices, non-electronic children's toys have ratcheted up a notch in elaboration and quality in order to keep up. Corporations can capitalize on this by creating well-made toys that require physicality, which appeals directly to parents fearful of their children becoming electronic couch potatoes.
