Hear From Our Toughest Critics: You


"This brand has been absolutely essential to my daughter. As a white woman who married a Hindu man this is a great brand/teaching toy that has brought a lot of joy to a biracial household. The toys and books are for my daughter but I’d be lying if I said I haven’t read them all and learned something myself."

Whitney Patel

"I bought the bookish bundle for my sons and the stories are so well thought out and depicted. The pictures in the books are adorable, and the language is simple to understand for my little boys. The books also give valuable life sessions which are easy for children to understand. Will definitely order more for gifting."

Mugdha Choudhari

"Since ordering a Ganesh toy for my daughter a few years ago, there hasn’t been a day she hasn’t slept with it. She loves it so much and brings it on all our trips, everywhere. The toy is just so cute and my daughter has fallen in love with Ganesh, the God, ever since. She now calls him her ‘favorite’ God. I would say that she also feels very safe and protected with her Ganesh toy around. It’s wonderful how Modi toys has made God so ‘accessible’ and ‘approachable’ to children."


"I saw the Hanuman toy with a young child at the local temple and instantly fell in love with the cute design and concept of the toy. I decided to gift the mini bundle to my newborn nephew, and he loves it! The toys are so cute and help introduce our culture to the younger generations in an organic way. My mom back home also loved them so much that I gifted the full bundle for her Golu collection she displays during Navaratri."

Not made clear that books were on sale because they were damaged.

I received a damaged book from modi toys and was denied a refund when I asked to send it back in. The book is unbound and falling apart. You should have made it much more obvious and clear that the books were marked on clearance sale because they were damaged! That should have been the first disclosure notice on the webpage … “$6.99 because book is damaged”. Poor quality and bad customer service .

Hi Meena, I'm sorry you feel so frustrated. We actually tried our best in being as transparent as possible in regards to the quality of our Devi books. We have made a note of it directly on the respective product pages and have even dedicated a blog post to thoroughly explain and provide some context behind the quality issue:

Best toys and books!

My daughter absolutely loves her plush toys and books from Modi Toys. She reads them every night before bed and loves listening to mantras. So happy found a way to engage with her to teach her about our culture in a way that she finds fun. Thank you!
