Toys have always fascinated kids especially toy boats and bubble makers. In this advent of Chinese incursion of sorts on the toy market, we also have some indigenous Make in India toys which are made on a very small scale in the home.
We just found this person, Habbiunddin Ibrahim Agakhan aged 65 years who has been selling toy boats which use candles and also the miniature boats which use camphor. Both are indigenously are made by Habbiunddin at his home and he has been doing this since 13 July 1974.
He said he started to sell the big boat at Rs.1.50 then and now he charges about Rs.70 for the same.
He also sells the bubble maker, a small bottle with foam base and a pipe which the kids are very fond of. There will be many who when were kids must have bought from him.
He goes about just everywhere selling these items from Jatras in neighboring districts to shopping festivals, food festivals like Annotsava.
He has some great marketing skills and convinces the kids to buy one and even says dont sit at home watching cartoon on TV but use this toy and play with it.
