Diverse Insights’ Dallas Fall Toy Preview: Trends & Licensing Recap

Header

Dallas, TX (October 10, 2016) – Fall Toy Preview has evolved into a hybrid show. It’s geared less towards prototypes and loose marketing plans in hopes for a buyer’s subtle nod of approval; to instead a collection of suppliers both large to small showcasing their products from concept to “currently in stock”. It’s become a show where you hear “can you ship that now” as much as you hear “I’m all bought up through fall”. The industry is tracking to be up 7% year over year according to NPD and retailers are being forced to move faster and be more flexible when it comes to trends. Below are the major trends from Fall Toy Preview 2016 that I believe will be heavy hitters in 2017:
