Do museums need to be more socially active to remain relevant to younger generations?
This Year, The Most Popular Toys Are High Tech
In the classic holiday movie “A Christmas Story,” all 9-year-old Ralphie wants for Christmas is a BB gun. That was set in the 1940s…today, Santa is taking other types of requests, like robots and self-balancing segways.
St. Nick recently visited Smitholator Cookie Shop, and we stopped by to take a quick “north poll” of what kids are asking for these days.
Shopkins, Littlest Pet Shop, Legends of Chima Legos top the list-- all toys with some type of digital aspect to them, like a TV show based on the toys or technology inside the toys themselves. Imagine Ralphie asking for a BB gun that connects to an Xbox.
Santa is a little busy this time of year to do interviews, so for more on the digitization of toys we turned to Richard Gottlieb, CEO of Global Toy Experts and a toy industry commentator.
