A child’s world is largely incomplete without toys. Children are associated with toys and vice versa. Toys help a child through childhood offering the child company, solace, security, a sense of belonging and curiously, a sense of ownership.

Toys for children up to the age of three are by and large unisex, but once the child crosses the threshold of age three, the toy world seems to undergo a sea change and a majority of toys are designed specifically keeping a boy or girl in mind. As the child’s choice of toys begins to undergo a change it signals a change in the child’s thought pattern and sensibilities too.
