1.Wooden Toys

Channapatna in Karnataka is known as town of wooden toys.  Craftsmen with their amazing skills make toys from wood. You might be thinking there are big industries manufacturing toys. But Channapatna has small scale industry where craftsmen make attractive and traditional toys. Some industries are so small that the work is done right outside the homes of these skilled artisans. But, the majority of them are shops where four to six people can work together.  This craft of making wooden toys is an ancient family tradition that has survived many generations. It was a decade back that the entire industry suffered a huge loss because of high demand and competition from the Chinese toy market.  It was the time that these toy designers had to shut the shop and go elsewhere in search of work for earning bread. But, when the world found that these plastic toys were toxic and not safe for children, the demand for these wooden toys raised again as they are made from wood and natural colours which is totally safe for the kids. Presently, these Channapatna wooden toys are highly demanded worldwide and have a major market place in countries like Europe and United States.

Did You Know:The Channapatna toys of Karnataka can be found in ‘White House’. YES!! Michelle Obama, during her recent trip to India was overwhelmed and very impressed with these wooden toys and bought some of them to take back to the White House as mementos.
