DailyDirt: Modern Toys, Not Just For Boys
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
There are a lot of new toys out for this holiday season. There’s still some time to shop for some cool toys, and here are just a few examples of toys that are expanding their markets into other uses and demographics.
- Lego topped $1 billion in sales in the US in 2010, but it’s only now starting to seriously target girls who are 5yo and up. It won’t just be pink plastic this time. [url]
- Toy helicopters are becoming pretty advanced, so it’s not too surprising to see added hacks to make them more useful. Spending $15,000 to modify an RC helicopter for professional videography goes way beyond most toy budgets, though. [url]
- Normally, Nerf toys are pretty safe and squishy, but apparently, they can be used to extract teeth, too. Will it hurt? Not if used on already-loose primary teeth. [url]
