    • Get more info on this report!Infant, Toddler and Preschool Furnishings, Toys and Accessories inthe U.S., 4th EditionNovember 1, 2010As the U.S. economy recovers from deep recession, all eyes are on product categoriesthat upscaled prior to the worldwide financial crashes of 2008-2009: Among suchcategories are young kids’ furnishings (cribs, highchairs, safety gates, etc.), accessories(baby monitors, car seats, strollers), and toys. Together, the three categories are amarket valued at $17.8 billion at retail in 2010, with $22.1 billion possible in 2015,according to this update of a best-selling Packaged Facts report. Pre-2008, it seemedthe parade of high-tech baby stroller brands on Main Street, U.S.A., would go on forever-- then sales of strollers priced at $1,000-plus, and sales of other top-end ITP products,were dampened by the bleak economic outlook. Yet in 2010, consumers are regainingconfidence, and Bugaboo, Maclaren, Stokke, and other pricey strollers are out on thesidewalks once more. This positive turn is reinforced by parents’ quest for smarter, saferways to raise kids; by high birth rates among U.S.-resident Hispanics; and by newevolutions of the Yoga Mom (the latest being Yoga Mom 3: Household Savior).Marketers’ creation of “mid-luxe” price-tiers has also helped them hedge againstlingering after-effects of recession. In Infant, Toddler and Preschool Furnishings,Toys and Accessories in the U.S., Packaged Facts examines such factors in depth,plus we deliver historical sales; a dollar forecast for the year 2015; the results of ourown survey of nearly 2,000 consumers; and Experian Simmons demographic data. Inaddition, we profile the corporate battle styles of Crown Crafts, Dorel, Leapfrog,Maclaren, MGA Entertainment, Newell Rubbermaid/Graco, Phil&teds/Mountain Buggy,and UPPAbaby.Report MethodologyInfant, Toddler and Preschool Furnishings, Toys and Accessories in the U.S. isbased on information gathered from primary, secondary, and syndicated sources.Primary research involves on-site study of how these car seats, cribs, rubber duckies,strollers, and other products are sold through retail stores; Packaged Facts alsoconsults with industry executives. These efforts complement our own demographicdata-gathering: In May-June 2010, we ran a detailed survey of almost 2,000 adults, ThePackaged Facts Consumer Survey 2010.
    • Secondary research involves the evaluation and comparison of data from mountains ofarticles found in financial, marketing, and retail publications, as well as oncorresponding types of websites.

IRI’s proprietary InfoScanReview is widely regarded as the “bible” for syndicated retail brand share. However,Wal-Mart data are excluded from the Review, per these retailers’ stipulations.In addition to analyzing consumers’ purchase and use of ITP furnishings/accessories/toys based on our own survey, we also analyze data from quarterly surveysby Experian Simmons (formerly Simmons Market Research Bureau, Inc.), one of theleading compilers of demographic data in the United States.The Bottom Line: What Your Company Really Gets...With Infant, Toddler and Preschool Furnishings, Toys and Accessories in the U.S.,you and your marketing team will gain a comprehensive overview of the ins and outs ofthis highly competitive business.
