Juvenile Couture Children's footwear is given a luxe overhaul for fashion-conscious parents Implications - Looking to convey prestige through their children, parents are investing in higher end footwear for kids.

Cultured Play Toys go from kitschy to sophisticated to create cultured kids Implications - Being born in the digital age grants today's adults the ability to think deeply about personal branding; a gift passed onto their children.

Feminized Collectible Action figures are no longer treated as boy-centric toys Implications - Action figures are often seen as more serious, less feminine versions of toys that are not to be played with, but collected. As gender stereotypes change, however, so to does the action figure and all it represents. Femalecentric collectibles are battling their men-specific predecessors signifying a shift in how little (and big) girls play.
