Will Slime Stick Around in 2019?
Slime is still super-popular. Lots of ‘Slimers’ (yes, it’s a thing!) have their own recipes and command lots of attention on social media. However, at the time of writing, the very popular and well-priced Cra-Z-Slimy Creations is still in the list of top 100 best-selling toys and games on Amazon. If you’re starting out in slime, this is a good product to buy.
Elmer’s also does a slime starter pack complete with Clear Glue, Glitter Glue Pens and Magical Liquid Slime Activator Solution.
Toy Crazes Down The Years
Back in the day, it was the hula-hoop, Yo-Yo and the Rubik’s Cube. We had double-dutch skipping and hopscotch crazes too. For boys it was mostly trading cards and stickers.
More recently there were Squinkies, Loom Bands, Tsum Tsums, Zhu Zhu Pets, Silly bandz and Moshi Monsters. For 2019, it looks like collectible toys will remain very popular.
Also, you know a craze is a craze when it is banned from school. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s over. Lots of crazes are reinvented time and time again.
Children love new toy crazes
Children love a craze because they love novelty. If something’s new, they want it. Kids don’t have the same ability to wait for things. Sometimes this can be very frustrating for adults. This could be people on social media as well as real-life friends and acquaintances. If someone they admire has something, they may well want it to because they want to be like that person.
