Why Choose NESTA Toys?
A small baby's brain has 100 billion nerve cells. The experiences a child has in the first 5 years of life develop neural networks. Scientists say that the first 5 years are the most important for the growth and development of any child. NESTA toys are designed based on this fact!
NESTA Toys believe in giving Children a natural and healthy beginning in life. Our toys are designed to give kids a chance to figure something out on their own, to build logical thinking, and help them become persistent problem-solvers. The toys will also help the kids learn how things fit together and develop fine motor skills.

NESTA Toys is a story of a father searching for ways to engage his one-year-old. Praful was raised in a small village in Maharashtra by a single mother. His journey from a small-town boy to an NIT Nagpur and IIM Bangalore Alumna was a rollercoaster. So when we became parents, Praful was determined to give all the fatherly love and care to Ridhaan which he missed out on as a kid. While I looked after Ridhaan's diet, Praful searched for ways to keep Ridhaan engaged throughout the day. A geek as he is, he started reading parenting books in his free time. A book that truly inspired us to move away from electronics and plastics and buy open-ended wooden toys for our son was "The Montessori Toddler". That's how our second baby was born - NESTA TOYS. Nesta means Pure and that is what we want the childhood to be - Pure fun!
NESTA TOYS was started with the hope of providing eco-friendly, natural, open-ended toys to every child in India. What inspires us to continue our journey with NESTA TOYS is the thought of creating a teeny tiny impact on developing happy, curious and eco-conscious kids.
