Fad

Definition

A fad refers to a product (e.g., unique doll based a popular movie franchise) whose popularity is intense but temporary. A fad comes in fast, receives much attention and publicity, and goes out fast. The time period is highly variable, and a fad can repeat at intervals of several years (as the hula hoop does).[1]
