Unicorns are nothing new of course, they have been around since 2,700 BC in one form or another.
However, in the last year or so, google trends shows a surge in popularity of these mystical, magical creatures, and there is no sign of this trend slowing down.
This obsession with unicorns doesn’t just encompass kids and toys, it seems we adults too have caught the unicorn bug.
There have been a lot of debates and articles written about why we are currently so obsessed with unicorns, but whatever the reason, I have to say I am loving it.
Social media platforms have been bombarded with unicorn paraphernalia of all descriptions. From make-up, clothing, toys, food, interior design, and even unicorn poo. There are literally millions of posts on Instagram, twitter, and facebook with the word unicorn tagged in them. There’s even a craze for Unicorn Toast
Retailers are more than happy to feed our addiction.
You can literally purchase just about anything and everything with a unicorn theme; from food, fashion, crockery, stationery, jewellery, cosmetics, toys, pool floats, and much, much, more.
