is an online library for kids, started with a vision and a purpose - that every child in the country should have access to the best toys that can significantly contribute to their physical and intellectual development, while also being a source of immense joy for the child, and that too, at an affordable price.
It was a casual discussion amongst three mothers sharing their experiences, which led to the birth of MyKhilona.com. The discussion was centred around the following points
How many toys are enough / reasonable for a child?
What is the typical attention span of a child towards a toy and therefore, for what portion of the lifespan of a toy does a child actually play with it? Today's children like to play with toys for few weeks; the rest of the lifespan of the toys is in store rooms.
The variety of toys now available in the market is enormous, but how much time and money can one spend on these toys? With the advent of "educational" toys, the words "flashcards", "phonics" etc. have being daily household jargons, so shouldn't our child have access to plenty of these?
Does it make economical sense to buy these toys, given kids' short attention span, the cost of the toys and storage issues?
Given the fact that toys contribute substantially to a child's development, does it make sense to buy a limited numbers of toys, or rent many, at the same cost, thus inculcating the various skills that these toys attempt to develop.
Is it possible for parents to carve out a substantial portion of their hectic schedules and actively devote time towards buying and maintaining these toys and enjoy watching their kids play? Working couples are already juggling too many balls at the same time.
With these thoughts in mind, together they started MyKhilona.com, not with the sole motive of making a profit, but more importantly, to enrich the experiences of countless parents in their efforts towards providing their children with the best toys to play with, in a manner that enhances their overall development.
