Flying toys with unique add-ons, look take off

 

Flying toy makers are investing in novelty functions and improved performance to stay competitive.

 

TOP TRENDS

 

  • Innovative features: Manufacturers are updating flashing LED add-ons by positioning the lights to form specific motifs or letters. Several flying discs are designed to whistle when thrown in the air. Others may even incorporate an RC system.
  • Novelty kites flourish: Suppliers continue to employ unique and licensed character shapes. Superman, Spiderman and Hello Kitty are mainstream for frameless inflatable variants. For better visual appeal, products adopt motifs with more than three colors applied through multiple printing methods.
  • Upscale models suitable for active play: Apart from appearance, businesses are enhancing the performance of releases for sports use to explore the midrange and high end. These have aerodynamic forms and special materials such as durable and lightweight HIPS. Boomerangs are popular exports.
  • Reduced R&D investment: Despite recent advancements, many companies are cutting the product development budget as revenue in the line is too small to fund the endeavor. In the past years, flying toys have been contributing only 5 percent to makers’ sales, most of which are attributed to low-end items.
