The Kids Insights Global Toy & Games report will be available in March and will feature how the toys industry is adapting to transformative times by embracing sustainability and inclusivity while AR & AI push limits on innovation - driven largely by ever - rising smartphone/tablet penetration among children. In the US, a substantial 63.5% of 3-9s own a tablet and 65.1% of 10-14-year olds own a mobile. Kids Insights data also highlights that 66.2% of parents spend up to £49 (US$64.40) on toys & games on a monthly basis in the UK. Within this bracket, 82.8% of purchases are made by women. In pocket money toys, kids’ rising financial empowerment drives sales and there is an intense battle over kids’ allowance. In Italy, puzzles accounted for almost one - fifth of all pocket money toy purchases in 2019, the highest in the world. The escalated streaming wars will increasingly shape content while the potential and growth from YouTube and Gaming licensed products are high. The research shows that the kid-spending economy on toys & games in the UK is worth £969m ($1.26bn), and in the US - $5.95bn.
