This paper analyzes the effects of parental income on children’s play in India. It also looks at the investment that parents make in play by analyzing the sale of toys in India. Using data from Funskool and Young Lives UK, we see that parental income does not have an impact on play but instead, factors that affect home environment have a significant impact. These factors include age of child, household size, number of siblings and parental education, especially mother’s education. Parents in India still buy more unbranded low quality cheap toys than branded high quality toys. This could be because the general Indian population do not have a lot of disposable income.
