Playing with toys is known to facilitate the learning process at an early age and boost the overall development of children while stimulating their creativity and their imagination.

They consist of traditional and modern variants, including cards, dolls, puzzles, board games, action figurines and mechanical cars.

China Toys Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the confluence of numerous factors, including the rising population, improving standards of living, inflating per capita income levels and the changing spending patterns of the masses in China. This, along with the availability of cheap labor and the increasing number of established toy production factories in the country, has led China to be a leading manufacturer of toys on the global level. Moreover, the shifting preference of toddlers from traditional toys to innovative plush and electronic variants is a major factor contributing to the market growth. Educational toys are also gaining widespread prominence in the market, especially among the urban population, as they promote experimentation and learning experiences among children. This has further catalyzed the escalating demand for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)-based toys among students, which, in turn, is creating a positive outlook for the market. Some of the other factors providing an impetus to the market growth include the easy availability of diverse toys with varied price ranges in the country and the convenient product accessibility through online retail portals. On account of these factors, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.3% during 2024-2032.
