Helping retailers, brands, and manufacturers around the globe make better business decisions
As children grow up, the toys they choose to play with change rapidly. And so does the market feeding that change. If you’re in the business of manufacturing and selling toys, it can be extremely challenging to stay on top of all the shifting tastes and trends, while at the same time making sense of retailer consolidations and store closings.
That’s where NPD comes in. We provide the insights and solutions you need to build solid assortments and determine optimal pricing and promotional strategies in all retail channels. To monitor what’s happening in the toy market, we collect point-of-sale information from major toy retailers—and we field millions of consumer surveys, too.
This information, combined with our analysts’ industry expertise and prescriptive analytics, provides a comprehensive view of what’s selling and where—so you can be at the forefront of product and retail innovations and make data-driven decisions with confidence.
