The challenges

Competition from China’s machine-made toys is a major obstacle for Kondapalli toys, as these handicraft toys are much less produced than machines.

In such fierce competition, these toys have to face a lot of challenges to make their place in the market.

The biggest challenge is the constant scarcity of Tella Poniki wood from which these toys are made, as well as the wood being sweet and relatively soft in its early years, so it also succumbs to various pests.
