Global Toy News: December 2012

In my mind, whether Ms. Bellafante is correct or not in her analysis, it is beside the point.
Bellafante points out that New York City's affluent neighborhoods have access to independent toy stores and their rich, eclectic mix of toys. Therefore, children in neighborhoods serviced only by Mass Merchandisers do not have access to the educational toys these stores offer. Bellafante refers to these toy blighted areas as "toy deserts. Here is how she puts it: In the way that we have considered food deserts - those parts of the city in which stores seem to stock primarily the food groups Doritos and Pepsi - we might begin to think, in essence, about toy deserts and the implications of a commercial system in which the least-privileged children are choked off from the recreations most explicitly geared toward creativity and achievement. Bellafante blames the big mass merchandisers for the problem. She notes that many smaller manufacturers and their wares do not show up on the shelves of the big box retailers. In other words, you can have a Wal-Mart or Target in your area and still live in a toy desert. Bellafante ends her article by stating: The New York Times Columnist, Gina Bellafante, in a column entitled "The Great Divide, Now in the Toy Aisle," decries the absence of a sufficient number of specialty toy retailers in the marketplace. Not because she is against the big mass merchandisers but because the independent retailers are unique in offering toys that do not sell in the quantities demanded by the big box retailers. Bellanfante notes that these toys that come from smaller companies frequently offer a level of educational content, creativity and design that enrich the lives of those who use them. She points out that specialty toys stores now largely serve more affluent communities. She believes that those who have access to these toys, the affluent, are a step ahead of those who do not. She calls areas that lack specialty retail stores "toy deserts.
