Description of one target market and buyer behavior:

The target market is grandparent in particular the young grandparents and below is why this segment was chosen and the target market behavior.

About one-third of American adults are grandparents

As a group, American grandparents spend more than $30 billion a year on their grandkids, a two-fold increase over what was spent a decade ago. Grandparents represent 15% - 25% of the annual toy dollars spent, depending on the individual toy category.

Grandparent purchases are a significant factor in the United States, representing between $3.5 Billion- $4 Billion dollars annually for purchases of toys and games; the entire annual traditional toys business in the USA represented $22.3 Billion market in 2006.

Toys“R”Us, can target the more internet-savvy and technologically competent group of younger grandparents, who have the dollars and the inclination to spend on their grandchildren.

Research indicates that 10% of all grandparent dollars spent on toys are ordered online. The new American grandparent is young (47 years old) and wants to actively take part in their grandchildren’s lives. With today’s life expectancy at 76 years, they may have as much as 30 years of grand parenting ahead of them.

Many have waited for years to indulge in their grandkids, since their own children have waited until later in life to become parents. This enthusiastic demand will especially affect the infant and preschool market for kids’ age 0-4, where grandparents feel the most comfortable with purchasing toys. As children grow older, their tastes and preferences are more discerning, making it more difficult for grandparents to select the perfect product.
