Between Banglore and Mysore lies the toy town of Chennapatna.
some memories I will share with all of you.It is said that these wooden toys are non-toxic and the paint used on them are lead free.All the items are very colourful.wikipedia says that the origin of these toys can be traced to the reign of Tipu Sultan who invited artisans from Persia to train the local artisans in the making of wooden toys.ivory wood,rosewood,sandalwood are the varieties of wood used.
Going down the memory lane I had these wooden horse as a kid.how I wish I could have been here earlier so that I could have got it for my daughter!!
