Toys and Games are valuable and inevitable part of life. Children start their
activity with Toys. Toys are their first learning tools while Games create
opportunities to learn life lessons. The special logic and science behind every toy
or game, so making them requires creativity and technical skills.
Total revenue of the global toy market is estimated above $90 billion but India's
share is just 0.5 per cent ($500 million). India's toy market is worth $1.7 billion
and unfortunately, 85-90 percent toys sold in the country are made in China, mainly because Chinese products are much cheaper. To reduce this dependency, Government is boosting domestic toy industry by promoting "Vocal for Local" and "Make in India" under the Atmanirbhar Bharat scheme. The first National level toys and games competition "Toycathon-2021" is initiated by Our Hon'ble Prime Minister, Shri. Narendra Modi. Toycathon 2021 is an inter-ministerial initiative organized by Ministry of Education's Innovation Cell with support from All India Council for Technical Education, Ministry of Women and Child Development, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Ministry of MSME,
Ministry of Textiles and Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. Toycathon
2021 is a unique opportunity for Students, Teachers, Start-ups and Toy
experts/professionals in India to submit their innovative toys/games concepts
and win large number of prizes worth Rs. 50 lakhs.
The present scenario of global toy market and the above initiatives of
Government inspire us to form a "Toys and Games Club". The club plans to
work in the direction of creating innovative toys and games which cultivate the
learning skill and human values in the players of the game. Objective
