Understanding the vital role toys play in building skills, Desi Toys brings classic toys with a fresh look. The products are made in India, and provide employment to local artisans. With lab tested safe products, they are available on websites, e-commerce marketplaces, and retail stores such as Hamleys. They have sales of 1.15cr in FY21-22 with a projection of 2.5cr in FY22-23.

However, the founder stood her ground and turned down the deal as she did not want to give up so much equity.
