Retailers are betting on a ’90’s comeback this holiday season. Some of the most-ordered toys this holiday season include throwbacks like toy Elmos, Furby, Polly Pockets and Razor scooters, according to trade data company Panjiva Research.
“Parents who played with some of these toys as kids are now out shopping for their own children and may be willing to put their precious holiday budget behind the toys they knew and loved themselves,” said Panjiva CEO Josh Green.
“It’s probably a safe bet for retailers, and we’ll find out in the month ahead whether it was a smart bet as well.”
Polly Pockets were originally tiny dolls that came in a small plastic case. Now, the brand has grown to include games.
The action figures have gained newfound popularity following a new animated series based on the old classic.
The Tickle-Me-Elmo caused a stir in the 1990's. Now, a large plush version and a singing 'rock me' version of the furry red Sesame Street character is a popular toy.
