"For several years Funskool has been associated with Spielwarenmesse in Germany - the world’s largest toy fair in Nuremberg, and in India we are delighted to be associated with Kids India. We have the largest distribution network in the country and all our products are available in toy stores from Kashmir in the north to Kayakumari in the south. Our current focus is to make toys for the global market by leveraging our capability in developing and making quality toys and Kids India presents an excellent platform for us. The fair has exceeded our expectations and we are now looking forward to participating at Kids India 2016."
Mr. John Baby, CEO, Funskool India. Ltd.
"Kids India has been one of the finest toy fairs with an extensive variable for exhibitors in the country. The exhibition now in its third edition has grown phenomenally with an array of domestic & international exhibitors facilitating networking & business association to the next level, where both buyers and manufacturers from across the globe have mutually benefitted."
Mr. Shree Narayan Sabharwal, Business Head, Simba Toys Pvt. Ltd.
"The third edition of Kids India has out matched our expectation, wherein we have witnessed an increased number of footfalls to our stall as compared to last year. We were able to showcase our products and could reach out to a large number of visitors both Indian & foreign. The seminars and workshops conducted this year at the event shed light on various issues & business opportunities that India has to offer."
Mr. Samir Jain, Executive Director, Green Gold
"The rising purchasing power of the middle income group offers great potential to offer high quality products, especially in the baby products sector where parents don’t want to compromise on quality at all. Platforms like Kids India offer huge potential for international brands like Chicco and domestic brands to showcase their product range, domestic manufacturers to display their manufacturing prowess and relationship management. Benchmarking of quality standard for toys & development of government policies will be the key for the growth of India's domestic manufacturing sector and will provide opportunities for domestic manufacturers to offer quality products to the ever growing customer base."
Mr. Rajesh Vohra, CEO, Artsana India Pvt Ltd
"With 600 million people under the age of 25, the youth of India will transform not only India’s entertainment and merchandising landscape but also the world’s. Yet despite having the world’s largest youth market, India has one of the smallest shares of the annual USD100 billion global character and entertainment licensing industry. For the Indian character licensing industry to rise, the entire eco-system needs to work together, and fortunately Kids India is one of the rare conferences where retailers, manufacturers and IP owners can discuss opportunities, challenges and collaboration to move India forward. I am honored to have been a part of it."
Mr. Sharad Devarajan, Co-Founder & CEO, Graphic India
"The growth for SME/MSME sector in the domestic toy sector is heavily dependent on innovative designing & conceptualization of products. Development of manufacturing capability & growth of the ancillary support industry to toy manufacturers are key issues hampering the growth of the domestic sector, currently dominated by the unorganized sector. High custom duty on imports of raw material & machinery suitable for toy manufacturing from China, severely affects a very price sensitive domestic market currently influenced by rising number of distributors importing products, mainly from China. A platform like Kids India offers a lot of potential for the domestic SME sector to network & display innovative quality products to potential buyers & distributors."
