During the pandemic, toys and games sales were primarily driven by the online retail of products. However, due to delays in much-anticipated movie releases like “Trolls World Tour” and “Top Gun: Maverick,” the toys, collectibles, and other merchandise based on the character of these movies that already reached the retailer stores observed no or minimal sales.

Parents are increasingly encouraging their kids to buy outdoor and sports toys due to the growing prevalence of childhood obesity and other health problems in many countries across the globe.
