Dolls & Toys of Haryana

Dolls & Toys of Haryana

The cloth dolls of Haryana range from 6 inches to 36 inches in height. They depict typical rural scenes, with models of village women with a water pot or baskets of vegetables. Group compositions --- a group of women dancing and tribal dance scenes ---  are common, as are jungle scenes and epic characters like Sita, Lord Rama, and Lakshman. The clothing and jewellery of dolls is authentic to the characters.

The wooden toys of Haryana are attractive and brightly coloured. The range includes jigsaw puzzles and pull- and push-along toys which help toddlers take their first steps.
