Passage

Designing toys for children is challenging yet stimulating. Considering the low attention span of today’s kids, toys with higher play value are able to engage them longer. Young minds are also quite impressionable. So toy design has to be conscious about ethics and values and also aid their cognitive, physical, emotional and social skills. But above all, fun is the primary objective of play. Fun is what makes them come back for more makes them learn and remember. Another crucial factor is eco-friendliness. Some of the best pro-environment design processes can actually be found in the Indian handicrafts industry. One such example is the lathe-turned toy craft of Channapatnaa town near Bengaluru.

The age old craft uses wood and colours made completely from natural materials like turmeric, kumkum, indigo, etc. Creating modern designs based on such conventional techniques opens up a new range of products that are unique, educational and organic.

Passage

Though it is irrational to imagine about travelling, but it is necessary to have an understanding of human nature. Only with long experience and the opening of his wares on many a beach, where his language is not spoken, will the merchant come to know the worth of what he carries and what is parochial and what is universal in his choice. Delicate goods like justice, love and honor, courtesy are indeed all the things we care for, are valid everywhere but they are variously molded and often differently handled and sometimes unrecognizable, if you meet them in a foreign land and the art of learning basic common values are perhaps the greatest gain of travel to those who wish to live at ease among their fellowmen.
