Survival of street toys in the world of branded toys.
Today the toy market is flooded with several interesting branded toys like Funshool, playmate, Fisher price, Hotwheels. Why are street toys still surviving in this world of branded toys? What is so special about the street toys that attract every childs attention?
I met some toy makers and sellers, studied the manufacturing and selling process. Opinions of the kids and parents were sought Most of the street toys are very interesting because they are hand made, so every piece is different. They are different from the toys found in the toy shops. Some of these street toys can only be sold effectively on streets.. Selling these toys (magical toys) requires special selling skills that cannot be adopted by a shopkeeper. Though simple, they have the ability to bring a smile on the face of a child. Thus in spite of modern branded toys, street toys will always continue to charm kids because of their uniqueness and beauty.
