Kids love blind bags as it’s a thrill opening up a mystery box or bag, to find a surprise toy. Blind bags also appeal to kids as they usually are part of exclusive collections, which kids may enjoy collecting and comparing with their friends. Some examples of popular blind bags include Ooshies, Lego Minifigures, and LOL Surprise. Although a wide range of popular franchises offer blind bags.
As the most popular films are currently superhero films and are likely to remain so for the next decade, superhero toys such as Marvel action figures will only continue to skyrocket in popularity. Examples of which include Iron Man and Captain America figures and Avengers-themed blind bags.
Star Wars toys:
Star Wars toys will trend in the future as Disney now owns the rights to the Star Wars franchise and has committed to releasing new Star Wars films and programs in the future. Especially due to the success of their Disney+ show The Mandolorian and the creation of Star Wars-themed lands in their California and Florida-based theme parks. Some examples of which include talking Star Wars plushies and lightsabers.
STEM-focused toys which teach kids about technology are definitely going to become more commonplace in the future. One example of a STEM-based toy that’s currently available are the Smart Gurlz dolls. Which teaches girls about coding and allows them to move their dolls, which ride on Segways using their coding skills. As Smart Gurlz has announced that they plan to release boy dolls and a more diverse range of dolls in the future, expect their dolls to gain a lot of traction.
Build-A-Bear has grown from strength to strength in recent years as it has begun to release sold-out collaborations with hugely successful franchises such as Harry Potter, Pokemon, Animal Crossing, and Marvel. This indicates that in the future Build-A-Bear will continue to offer collaborations with desirable brands and franchises. Another reason why Build-A-Bear plushies will be in hot demand is that customizable toys are becoming more popular and kids will be able to customize their plush toy’s clothing and accessories. They can select fun scents to rub on their plush toys.
With Pokemon games being huge hits for Nintendo and Pokemon Go still being popular, you can also expect Pokemon toys to increase in popularity.
