One of the best ways to introduce a child to Indian tradition is by gifting cultural toys such as a Ganesha plush toy. Lord Ganesha is a beloved Deity in Hinduism and gifting a Ganesha toy will encourage a child to learn more about the stories and symbolism behind the Deity.
Most importantly, it will give the child a sense of connection to their roots at an early stage. Children are generally overstimulated or easily distracted with their iPads. This little toy can bring a sense of peace and connection that many toys cannot bring to the table.
A Ganesha plush toy holds great significance in a household for several reasons. Here are a few:
- As a symbol of devotion: Ganesha is widely revered as the remover of obstacles and the lord of wisdom and knowledge. Having a Ganesha soft toy in the household can serve as a symbol of devotion to this Him and a reminder to seek His blessings in times of difficulty.
- Mantras: Children can begin to develop a deeper connection to the Deity by chanting its mantras. Cuddly Gurus’ Great Ganesha plush toy chants a mantra each time you press the belly. There are a total of 5 mantras including Vakratunda, Om Gan Ganapatay, JaiDev JaiDev, Gayatri Mantra, Morya Rey Bappa Morya Rey.
-Aesthetic appeal: Ganesha soft toys come in vibrant colors, making them a popular choice for home decor. They can be used to add a touch of traditional Indian aesthetic to the home or to create a themed space during festivals and celebrations.
- Durability: The toys are durable and long lasting, so little ones can enjoy them for years to come.
Parents have thousands of options when it comes to choosing a gift for your child. But multicultural plush toys and books have the power to spark conversations about culture and tradition, while at the same time, teach values and beliefs associated with them.
It is a beautiful way to keep tradition and culture alive while spreading joy and love to others.
Ganesha storybooks are also a great way to pass on important values and teachings to the younger generations and help them develop a sense of appreciation for their faith.
