London, United KingdomChildren nowadays are introduced to smart phones, tablets and computer early on, and as a consequence they play less with physical toys. This phenomenon is becoming more apparent in the US market. The whole toy industry is stagnant. Another reason for the recession is the shrink in youth population. In our previous post, we discussed that the global birth rate growth is slowing down. Especially in developed countries, the birth rate is low. The recession of the toy industry is likely to be structural.However there is one particular toy segment that is booming: action figure. This is largely contributed by the raising popularity of superhero & fiction movies and computer games. A major consumer group in the segments is actually adult. Action figure segment is still small compare to some other traditional toy segments, but perhaps someday it may become as mainstream as dolls.What toys do you play when you were young?
