Sample Baby Pro Trends

Each Baby PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online baby articles, videos and images. Examples:

Incentivized E-Partnership Large-scale e-commerce giants incent small brands to collaborate Implications - Giving small companies incentive to collaborate instead of competing with large scale retailers in the digital space, companies like Amazon are offering branded, custom shops and promotions to brands looking to help sell goods. This not only benefits the big names in e-commerce, but also offers more exposure and a larger consumer base to small brands.

Empowered Chat Female-focused communication apps create a community Implications - It's no secret that women enjoy communicating with their peers, and in an age of instant communication, this has spawned many female-specific messaging services. These services show both a strategic positioning of chat products toward women of all ages, and a sense of community that is vital to gender equality.

Generation Celebration Boomers look for generation-specific forms of amusement Implications - Many aging consumers have begun actively searching for forms of entertainment that speak to the boomer experience. Much of the entertainment industry is catering to a younger demographic, leading several boomers to produce generational exhibits, festivals and performances. The rise in boomer-specific entertainment indicates that consumers feel a sense of community when it comes to their generation.

Active Aging Consumers search for team-centric activities that make the most of aging Implications - With more discretionary income than their millennial counterparts, the boomer generation is keen on taking part in leisure activities that cater to them. Energetic and enthusiastic, the boomer consumer is interested in ushering in a new stage of life with adventure and experimentation, and courting like-minded individuals in the process. Boomer lifestyle activities ultimately reveal that consumers are delaying aging with increased mobility, involvement and community.

Sophisticating Baby Infant aesthetics go from cartoonish to chic Implications - Minimalist baby design speaks to a happy medium between the popular fad-based, Internet-heavy infant aesthetic, and the classic cartoonish, childlike look of animal-inspired, pastel-hued pieces. This more sophisticated look accommodates the need for something modern and age appropriate, yet still fitting to an adult aesthetic.

Critter Kinder Animals are prominent in baby design Implications - Allowing new Instagram-age parents the opportunity to communicate creativity through their children, animal-themed infant clothing maintains a cute and conservative look that is de rigeur, yet still childlike. Diverging from the rising trend of dressing babies like chic adults, this pattern shows parents still want kids to be kids, but in a way that satisfies the desire for uniqueness.

Artisan Infant Handmade clothing for infants adds a more trustworthy feel Implications - Naturalism and safety take precedent when parents choose clothing for babies, creating a need for artisan infant apparel. Handmade clothing communicates a feel of extra care that suits parents well. This speaks to the values of modern parents, who would rather steer clear of mass manufacturing.

Unexpected Tubular Paint-like packaging extends to inspire unexpected products Implications - Inspired by adjacent industries, brands are adopting tube-like packaging for products that aren't typically associated with a flexible format. Signifying a consumer openness to alternative packaging, this switch not only piques the interest of consumers with an unexpected look, but provides a more controlled, cleaner product experience.
