Humans have been fascinated with unicorns for centuries. Now they’re all over cosmetics, pool floaties, and bagels. What’s driving our current obsession?

I find it crazy they seemed to pop up everywhere and so many people are obsessed. Could understand if it was a new thing but as you say they’ve been around for centuries

RachHC I wonder if it's because real life is so hard for many just now, are people looking for something whimsical and fun? Like an escape from reality!?

Aliceband with a unicorn horn on it!- What a total waste of money. Stick an upside down ice cream cone on her head, you'll hardly notice the differenceπŸ˜€

Unicorns are has-beens.

Camels got the hump.

Llamas are where it's at.

There are llama leggings, llama face masks, llama socks, llama party plates and llama mugs, llama rugs, llama tea towels, llama lunch boxes, Boppi llama pets, even Unicorns vs Llamas Monopoly...

I'm now betting big on Giraffes

I think it’s all down to marketing. It is a way of encouraging people to buy a new set of bedding for their child or something equally unnecessary.

The unicorn craze has been going a few years now. My daughter was one of the first, she then decided to change to sloths. The idea was a trip to Costa Rica but due to Covid this has been put on hold.

So imo it’s just pop culture yeah. But like if there was snoopy Merch (which there is more of nowadays)I’d most likely be all over it because I love snoopy and as much as the peanuts gang have been out for years...products haven’t always been avail or it’s been select in what you can purchase. If it makes someone happy why not eh 😊

Sjlm92 aww....nothing bad about that! Personally they are not something that appeals to me that much. I can imagine when there is a craze, the prices on these items go nuts....not surprised about your bank manager! πŸ˜πŸ™ˆ
