Over the past year, more families than ever before have begun playing together, but new data suggests that many are also dancing together.
Life in the COVID-19 era has delivered many unexpected new trends, one of which is the “kitchen disco” and the movement is growing just as MGA Entertainment’s (MGAE) latest extension to its L.O.L. Surprise! brand is hitting retail. L.O.L. Surprise! Dance Dance Dance is all about moving and grooving, and the results of a new poll conducted by MGAE sheds light on exactly what tunes families are enjoying during their kitchen dance parties.
“Dancing is always something that has brought people together from around the globe,” says Isaac Larian, founder and CEO, MGA Entertainment. “We love that our toys have inspired our fans, parents, and children, to find escape and joy together in kitchen disco parties and that they have embraced dance as a way to connect no matter what is happening in the world around them.”
MGAE says that it polled 2,000 American parents and found that 49% of those surveyed said that kitchen discos are a regular weekend occurrence. Additionally, 30% of all parents are being introduced to TikTok by their kids with MC Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This” scoring the top spot for the dance most taught to parents by kids.
