Today, many mothers leave their children at the hands of gadgets so that they are not disturbed or even so that they eat without any fuss. Some of the adverse health effects of using these gadgets include diminished social communication skills and reduced quality of sleep. Additionally, for older children, time spent online also means physical inactivity that is imperative for mental and physical growth.
“I think in this day and age, parents want to buy the trendiest toys but plastic toys do not give a sense of belongingness to the natural world. Wooden toys are safe, sustainable and can be passed across generations,”says Nisha, the co-founder.
