Sometimes, people ruin everything. That includes products that are designed and targeted for kids. A recent online discussion lists several examples where adults hijacked something meant for children.
The cute and cuddly stuffed animals feel similar to the Beanie Baby craze in the 90s. There are hundreds of Squishmallows, and all have a backstory. However, if you’re looking for a popular one for your kid, you might be out of luck. Scalpers are stepping into the market and raising the price.
After School Hobbies
Everything doesn’t have to be a competition, yet some parents push their kids too far during after-school activities. This includes sports, music, and other hobbies.
The kid is there to have fun, not make a career out of it.
Games such as the Pokemon Trading Card game and Magic: The Gathering are primarily designed for a younger audience, but adults are swopping in to inflate the price of cards.
With the new Disney Lorcana card game released, the trend will likely continue.
We’re talking about being a kid in general. Some parents use their children for clout or fame online. Your kid’s life isn’t meant to make you more popular. Let your children live their own life!
Young Adult Novels
It’s right there in the name: young adult novels. The characters are, at most, teenagers. Yet that doesn’t stop grown adults from overreacting to plot developments and character decisions.

My Little Pony
The children’s television show has a massive adult audience that has bought all into the My Little Pony lifestyle. Some adults make the show their entire personality.
Growing up, you probably associated clowns with the circus. They’d make you laugh and smile. Today, however, most people agree that they associate clowns with horror more than anything else.
Athletes will often stay late after practice or a game to sign autographs for kids. The simple gesture can resonate with the youngsters and develop a memory they’ll never forget.
Adults, however, tend to push kids out of the way to get their own autograph.
The social media website is used by people of all ages today. Its original demographic, however, was college kids. Today, it feels like most people on Facebook are older people sharing pointless memes.
It often feels like most video games, especially ones aimed at kids, feature heavy monetization practices targeted to get parents to spend money to keep their children happy.
