Exactly what is an impulse toy? It is any toy that makes you want to buy it “just because.” Chances are it is something that is cute and small, and it makes you ooh and aww all over it.
Many times, you know that it’s something that you don’t really need, but because it is so cheap and appealing, you purchase it anyway. Oh, what the hell? It doesn’t make sense, but you know your child, husband, friend, co-worker or somebody is going to just love it just as much as you.
For instance, who needs a glow in the dark arcade that is small enough to fit on a keychain? No one does, but it is so cute. This is why people buy impulse toys. They make you happy. They produce giggles and laughs, which is a good thing. An impulse toy is a great buy for both children and adults.
