Retail Toy Sales 2013

Via NPD.

The NPD Group, 2013 US retail dollar sales of toys experienced a decline of 1 percent when compared to 2012*. Retail sales do appear to be impacted by 2013’s shorter holiday shopping season. While the weeks of Black Friday and Cyber Monday saw respective sales increases of 4 percent and 24 percent (compared to the same time periods in 2012), the remaining weeks experienced softer sales vs. 2012.

Disney had three of the top 5 absolute dollar growth properties, including Doc McStuffins, Sofia the First, and Disney Planes. Nickelodeon’s Ninja Turtles and LEGO Legends of Chima both claimed spots in the top 5 growth properties.

Top properties for the year based on total dollar sales (in alphabetical order) included Barbie, Disney Princess, Monster High, Nerf, and Star Wars.

    I’m a little surprised that Disney Planes was one of the top 5 absolute dollar growth properties. Other than a few ho-hum playsets and micro-drifters, there didn’t appear to be much “new” merchandise out there. But then it’s a relatively “young” franchise and probably had some room for growth around Christmas.

    (MET: It always helpful to start from zero … unlike some of the other ones. 🙂 ).
