Dolls and Toys of Chattisgarh

The toys made here are usually hollow, and hand-crafted by women. Animals figures such as horses, elephants, dogs, lions, birds, and deer — fixed with wheels — are popular with children. Whistle-like toys, made in the tradition of the toys found at Harapppa and Mohenjodaro, are extremely popular. Bastar, Chindwara and Jhabua specialise in huge hollow terracotta forms; since the firing process is faster in hollow forms, the craftspersons prefer to make hollow figures instead of solid ones.
