Bangalore, November 18: Giving a further push to PM Narendra Modi's vision of Atmanirbhar Bharat, Amazon India on Wednesday launched a toy store. This store will give an opportunity to sellers from 15 Indian states to showcase unique toys across categories like traditional, handmade and educational.
According to an IANS report, the launch of the "made in India" toy store will thus help the local manufacturers to fight against the huge competition from the Chinese toys which have entered the Indian market.
