Modern moms and dads are leaving the aprons and golf shirts in the past. Today, parents come in a variety of styles, so to speak -- many of them being of the tattooed-and-purple-haired variety. And the coolest part about this "shift" in parenting? The push for kids to embrace their own individuality. Luckily, both the fashion and toy industries are starting to recognize this trend. 

  • To embrace this individuality, Hot Topic collaborated with Build-A-Bear Workshop to bring the first punk-rock bear.

    The "Furry N' Fierce" collection brings kids a fluffy, pierced, and dyed doll that can be accessorized with stylish edgy clothing.
