2019’s Trending Tech Toys
The 116th North American International Toy Fair this year unveiled 100,000-plus brand-new toys – among them an array of cool new tech toys for kids (and kids at heart). Held in New York City, the event showcased everything from interactive plush to electronic toys that teach STEM concepts, all of which will be rolling out through to the 2019 holidays.
“U.S. sales of tech-infused toys continue to grow, thanks to fantastic innovation and a strong consumer appetite for wow-factor gifts that don’t break the bank,” said Adrienne Appell, senior director of strategic communications at The Toy Association, which produces the annual Toy Fair. “Sales are being driven by the latest trends in youth electronics, including ‘magical’ toys that reveal hidden features and screenless tech toys that promote social and interactive play.”
