Diving into a history stretching back to the revered Indus-Sarasvati civilization, Indian toys encompass a tradition spanning nearly 5000 years. Unearthed artifacts from Mohenjo-Daro and Harappa, including miniature carts, sculptures of dancing women, and cubical dice, illustrate a rich legacy of toys that transcended mere amusement.

These toys, a mirror to our ancestors’ innovative spirit, also played pivotal roles in educating and shaping the minds of countless Indian children. Today, the Ministry of Education, partnering with MyGov, endeavors to keep this tradition alive, channeling the creative prowess of the nation’s youth into breathing life into these tales.

Objective and Theme of the Toy Competition

To safeguard and propagate the unparalleled heritage of Indian toys, the Ministry of Education, in synergy with MyGov, has announced an All-India Competition titled Toy-Integrated Stories for Children. This initiative beckons budding authors and illustrators to craft stories spotlighting India’s toy tradition, aiming to metamorphose these tales into enchanting children’s books.

The central theme revolves around producing a ‘Creative children’s book focusing on the toy tradition of India’. Participants are urged to draft computer-typed manuscripts that seamlessly weave toys into the narrative fabric. Additionally, entrants can either conjure fresh educational toy-centric stories or ingeniously utilize prevalent toys to design instructive storybooks.
