At Cerdá, we also believe that age is just a number, and what matters is how you feel inside. If you don't know anything about Kidults, here are the basics you need to know about this segment of the licensed products market.
What are Kidults and why do I have to consider them for my Geek store?
We can summarize that a Kidult is an adult who likes fashions for young minors, video games, comics, and movies for teenagers. Many people believe that Kidults are just immature people, but they are people who do not get carried away by a standard of society and who will not leave their tastes because "it is normal."
It may not be the largest market segment of all, but it is the ideal segment to drive purchases of licensed products for children because they have the purchasing power to buy what they want from a store. Also, a Geek store is a magnet to attract Kidults and a gold mine if you invest in licensed products from the people in trend among these people.

What types of products are adults looking for?
Kidults are not afraid to wear “teen” products in public so that you can offer an ocean of options. However, they usually look for accessories that they can use in their daily lives, such as pins, notebooks, umbrellas, diaries, caps, backpacks, hats, key chains, handbags, or other useful products.
On the other hand, the clothes for the Kidults can be a bit complicated, but there is nothing better than t-shirts and sweaters with minimalist designs or a little more serious than the normal ones.
