Tangible Personalization (UPDATE) Customization adds a deeper feeling of ownership Implications - The personalization of goods offers a superlative novelty factor as it adds profound relevance to individual consumers.

Laissez-Faire Learning Embracing energetic youth, brands take a laissez-faire approach to learning Implications - Acknowledging the playful nature of children by speaking to their sense of humor, brands are adopting new ways to garner the attention of youths and satisfy parental desire for a form of stimulation that’s multi-faceted and immersive. This playful marriage of fun and function through product further enhances socialization early on, which engrosses a child’s cognitive abilities to desire constant stimulation. Reinterpreting societal norms, this attention to immersive, interactive playtime is not only switching up the way children learn, but also how adults respond to development in the digital age.
