With autumn now here and the Christmas season tantalisingly close, it’s time to secure stock and get organized before festive demand gets into full swing!
With headline news about lorry driver and shipping container shortages capturing public attention recently, it’s likely that consumers will be more conscious than usual when it comes to securing Christmas presents this year. Retail research suggests we’ll see demand for gifts start earlier than usual, with less price sensitivity. It helps that families are especially keen to make up for the restrictions of last year that dampened celebrations.
Stocking fillers are an ideal means of tempting shoppers and bumping up sales from October onwards. Keycraft has a great selection of wholesale pocket money toys in stock that are ideal.
Here’s 5 reasons why stocking fillers toys are a great win for retailers!:
When the price point is low but the novelty value and kid-appeal is high, your sales volumes won’t disappoint. Families on all budgets will be able to afford and enjoy pocket money toys, meaning your toy stock will appeal to the widest range of demographics possible.
Small items with matching price points are easy to pick up, offering shoppers impulsive satisfaction with less cost inhibition or restriction. The result is an increased average basket size and a positive customer experience. When this retailer introduced a range of our pocket money toys, they increased sales by 220%!
Small and light pocket money toys are free from bulky packaging and make life easy when it comes to handling, stockroom or warehouse storage and in-store displays. They help you make the most of in-store floor space to maximize return for available space, and lend themselves well to space-efficient display solutions like end-of-shelf and spinner stands.
You don’t need to make a large investment in wholesale pocket money toy stock, and it’s one of the fastest shifting product categories. Kids are the perfect demographic for selling high volumes of novelty items. Their enjoyment is also the natural focus of Christmas, accounting for most gifts received within a household.
If your stock doesn’t completely sell during the festive period, the great thing is that you can incorporate it into your non-seasonal displays afterwards. There’s no limit to the shelf life!
