** This relationship is inverted with the [[Film/{{Transformers}} live-action movies]]: though primarily aimed towards older teenagers and adults (what with all the gratuitous swearing, violence [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and]] {{Mythology Gag}}s, the movies are more unanimously popular among children than [[LoveItOrHateIt among]] [[BrokenBase adults]], resulting in a fair bit of MisaimedMarketing.

* Fidget Spinners were designed, as the name suggests, to reduce fidgeting particularly for children with ADHD and Autism. However, the popularity of the toy '''exploded''' among neurotypical kids and teens to the point of MemeticMutation...unfortunately the inevitable HypeBacklash against them essentially resulted in adults categorizing them with stereotypical millennial traits [[NiceJobBreakingItHero accidentally resulting in more anxiety within its target audience in the process]].

** It makes sense, because "young, urban adults" are the ones most vulnerable to street crime, and the ones most justified in protecting themselves. Who is an "angry redneck" living out in the woods ever going to need to shoot?

* [[AmericanGirlsCollection American Girl]], despite being a company aimed at girls between the ages of 8 and 12 mostly, has a very large fanbase of adult women, usually middle-aged or older with either children outside of the target age or no children of their own. There are at least three popular adult collector forums (with thousands of members each) and most of the secondary market is fueled by the demand from adult collectors.

* Whenever you watch a TV show, whether it's live-action or animation, and whether it's traditionally or streaming, have you ever noticed those advertisements for life insurance, arthritis medicine, the AARP, and other related products and services? This is because no matter what you're watching, there will be at least a small amount of elderly people among its audience, but not so small that advertising to them is meaningless. The prevailing method of them finding a show is by stumbling across it looking for something to watch, so whatever show you're watching, there have been at least a few elderly people who found it by chance and happened to like it enough to keep watching. Contrary to stereotypes about old people and television, these elderly people actually ''are'' paying attention to the show and understanding it, meaning Grandma may be the household's expert on ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' or ''Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack''.
