Dolls & Toys of Bangladesh

Dolls & Toys of Bangladesh


Through the ages, an infinite variety of terracotta toys and dolls, both painted and unpainted, have been produced by the artisans of South Asia. Ancient sites at Harappa and Mohenjo Daro have yielded a great wealth of clay toys and dolls of remarkable versatility and charm. Similar votive images have been produced over several centuries throughout Bangladesh: indeed such timeless dolls and toys continue to be cherished even in these days of mechanical playthings.
