They are generally made using wood, metal, textiles, polyethylene, polypropylene, ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA), styrene-derived polymers, and technical plastics like polyamide, polycarbonate, or polymethyl methacrylate.

They are also offering hi-tech electronic toys through online distribution channels.
Toys market enhances senses, imagination, and social skills
Introducing physical activity and educational toys at an early stage of a child’s development enhances their senses, imagination, and social skills. This, in confluence with the rising concerns among parents about the social and emotional development of their child, represents one of the key factors impelling the market growth. Moreover, playschools are offering science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) toys, such as boxes, blocks, musical instruments, and jigsaw puzzles, in their education to instill creativity and problem-solving skills in kids. Apart from this, the thriving e-commerce industry on account of the increasing reliance on smartphones and the growing internet penetration is driving the sales of innovative electronic and digital toys over conventional battery-operated toys. Furthermore, the increasing popularity of tech-savvy electronic toys among children as well as adults that depict action figures like Batman, Superman, Ironman, and Captain America is contributing to the market growth. Besides this, governments of numerous countries are encouraging companies to design and introduce toys based on culture, ethos, and local folklore and heroes, which is anticipated to drive the market.
