About us

Children Toy Foundation is an NGO which aims to promote games (indoor and outdoor), toys and other modes of play and recreation among children. Children Toy Foundation (CTF) is a trust registered with the charity commissioner of Bombay. Its prime objective is to inculcate in people in general and children in particular a genuine love for toys and games. Since 1982, it has been striving to infuse a new enthusiasm in society about the intrinsic worth of toys and games. Now it is hoping to sustain and enlarge this vision by ensuring closer co-operation among toy / games enthusiasts so that individuals as well as organization, society as well as state can pave the way for much bigger things.

Our Aim
• To educate children through play, beyond reading and writing, so as to help them acquire real skill and develop positive attitudes in their life.
• To instill a sense of pride within the young ones and further boost their confidence. For this we use the potential force of toys and games.

Toy/game libraries:
CTF has a modest, yet impressive network of over a hundred such libraries all over the country. The motto is ´Lend a toy, share a joy´, the slogan "Play together, stay together". Apart from spreading its wings to eight states/Union Territories, the FOUNDATION has also provided know-how and guidance in setting up similar libraries in Bangladesh and countries of the Gulf and Africa.

• Children Toy Foundation helps and guides to set up toy/game libraries. CTF has so far helped various institutions to set up more than 273 toy/game libraries covering 11 states & 2 territories across the country. The foundation has provided know-how and guidance for setting up similar libraries in countries like Zanzibar and USA.
• TF also conducts ´On the Spot Game Contests´ at inter school level.
• CTF makes every effort: To develop indigenous games; To bring awareness about the importance of games in a child´s life; For donating toys and / or libraries to the deserving organisations for the lesser privilege children.
• Besides CTF has 4 mobile play van services
