At one point in your life, you've probably come across, or probably even played with, blocks. I know I have. My son has about 3-5 sets of these toys and he just can't seem to get enough of them! Today I'm showing you these toys can be more than just a way to entertain children: It's also a good market to invest in. If you are familiar with popular brands like Lego, Mega Bloks, K'NEX, and Nanoblocks, then you are definitely not alien to our Monday Market of the Week — building blocks.
You might think of building blocks as educational toys you would very well purchase for your kids, but nowadays, even grown-ups enjoy building with blocks in their free time. There are big blocks for small kids who still haven't grown out of the "put everything in their mouths" stage, and much smaller blocks for teens and adults, perfect for building models and more.
Our Market Research Lab presents data that speaks for building blocks' potential as a niche.
Here's how the building blocks niche fares on eBay:

A very promising 67 percent success rate just proves that building blocks are loved by all sorts of people. This niche is certainly one you should consider pursuing.
If the success rate didn't sway you, check out this low competition rating: there are 5 times more bids than listings, averaging 276 sales in a day. You would be crazy not to think that this market has potential to be successful!
As mentioned earlier, the number of average daily sellers is 276, with fairly low competition in the market. Sales peaked at $7979 for 1092 items on the best day last month. On the worst day of the month, sellers still made 594 sales, totaling about $4780. Building blocks are definitely more than just child's play.
