Driving Factors

Sensors, connectivity, and other digital technologies create toys that can interact with the internet and other devices. Thus, the growing integration of the Internet of Things (IoT) in toys is enhancing the market demand owing to its enhanced functionality and potential to provide interactive play experiences. By making eco-friendly toys, toy brands can not only reduce their environmental impact but also appeal to environmentally conscious consumers. The 2021 Kids & Family Industry Report shows that 69% of European toy companies are integrating sustainability into their manufacturing processes. As more consumers prioritize environmentally responsible options, smart toys that align with these values gain a competitive edge in the market. These smart home technologies, equipped with voice assistants and automated features, extend their reach to create a child-centric environment and become helpful for busy parents. Owing to the above factors, the rising adoption of integrated smart toys in the UK leads to drive the market growth.
