Interesting trends in the toy industry
Now I do not operate often in the stock market, but since somewhere, I am connected to the toy market, the future of the listed toy companies does interest me.
According to analyst reports, the companies are facing issues with respect to their demand. Because of the growing preference of technology among children (read the high use of laptops and iphones!), the position of traditional toy manufacturers is quite precarious. The retail sales of toys in the US in 2011 had actually fallen by 2% compared to 2010!
