Dolls, soft toys, wooden, educational and electronic toys are just a small part of Kids India’s portfolio along with model railways and sports, leisure and outdoor goods. The products will be spread across two halls and there will also be seminar and interactive podium discussions to allow exhibitors to interact with international buyers.

Following a forced two-year break due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the event restarted last year, attended by 5,476 trade visitors from 33 countries.

The Kids India show has been organised jointly by Spielwarenmesse India Pvt., a subsidiary of Spielwarenmesse eG, and the Indo-German Chamber of Commerce – with the support of leading industry associations: the Sports Goods Export Promotion Council (SGEPC) and The All India Toy Manufacturers’ Association (TAITMA).

“The response has been overwhelmingly positive and demand is already very high,” said Christian Ulrich, spokesman for the executive board at Spielwarenmesse eG. “We are expecting exhibitor numbers to rise further compared with what was already a very successful event last year.”

The Indian toy market is one of the fastest-growing in the world, and Kids India is the country’s most important international B2B trade fair for toys, children’s products and sports goods. At the previous show, more than 120 exhibitors presented their products.

The toy industry in India is reporting excellent economic prospects. According to Germany Trade & Invest, it has the potential to grow in the coming year to three billion dollars. Turnover in the retail toy trade is expected to increase by up to 15% – some ten percentage points more than the global average. This is due to the demographic structure in India, with a very high proportion of younger people and a growing middle class with rising incomes and consumption.

Businesses that are interested can register now for Kids India at www.kidsindia.co.in/exhibitor-registration.
