Member Brief: The Toy Report


The toy consumer gap. There are scenes from two very popular films of old: the piano scene from Tom Hanks’ Big and the “Dunkin’s Toy Chest” scene from Macaulay Culkin’s Home Alone 2.

Don’t get me wrong, Toys R Us was great. But like Walmart and Target are today, the primary toy store of many of our childhoods was less a destination and more of a warehouse. Consumers want experiential retail for toys. And BuzzFeed’s latest off-shoot hopes to address it.
