Gap Is Making A Comeback, & Trust Us, You’ll Want To Check It Out

via Generation Gap 90s Fashion Ads Celebrity Kids Video Gap is back — and in a really big way. The iconic ’90s brand is joining the rest of today’s throwback brands who are wrangling the attention of Generation Z. But for Gap, the comeback approach is simple: Why not recreate the spot that put them on the map in the first place?

Refinery29 spoke with model-musician Chelsea Tyler, daughter of Steven Tyler, about what it was like to follow in her father’s footsteps, and what Gap’s latest move is all about.

Hatchimals: The Hot Toy of the Season 

Spin Master came up with the Hatchimals  toy concept in 2014 and officially “hatched” on Oct. 7, creating the “Global Hatchimals Day.”  They chose a secretive launch strategy, which helped build the anticipation and excitement for all the Hatchimal species. Since their introduction in October, Hatchimals have become the toy of the season – with the suggested retail price of $59.99 and quickly becoming a rare find. They are finding avid fans in both boys and girls ranging in age from 3 to 12 years old. Hatchimals are interactive, furry creature that hatch out of a colorful egg. They come in five species — Draggles and Pengualas (penguin-like), Owlicorns (owls with a unicorn horn) and Burtles and Bearakeets (little bears and turtles). If you can’t find one now, more will be available in 2017.
