Around 1.2 lakh participants from across India registered and submitted more than 17000 ideas for the Toycathon 2021. Out of which 1567 ideas have been shortlisted for the three days online Toycathon Grand Finale, being held from today to 24th June.

Country’s domestic market as well as the global toy market offers a huge opportunity to our manufacturing sector. Toycathon-2021 is aimed at boosting the Toy Industry in India to help it capture a wider share of the toy market.
