Toys for Christmas 2004 - Teen Kicks

Ahead of their time and growing fast maybe under the influence of an older sibling. Aged 9 to 11 years old, they represented no less than £260m and up by 5% versus 2002 despite rumours that kids are moving away from toys earlier. Girls are into fashion and pop culture while boys are looking up to sports stars for role models and today’s teen kicks have fallen massively for Bratz, the girls mad about fashion. This year, the range has been extended beyond their maddest dreams and the show will go on!... But Teen Kicks are also about technology and as far as toys as concerned, Robotic Pets - remember Poo-chi and Teksta? - This year we discover the new generation of pets: Tamagotchi Connexion! Playground rumour has it that it is all about finding out the sex of your Tamagotchi baby when you put 2 of them in contact with each other
