Tanjavur Kattam, also called Dayakattam, is a race game from Tamil Nadu that bears resemblance to Pagade and the more well-known Ludo. There are many modern versions of the game - Parcheesi, Sorry!, and Ludo are among the many Westernized commercial versions of the game. The American equivalent of Ludo deviates less from the original and acknowledges its Indian heritage by naming it ‘Parcheesi, the Royal Game of India.’ The game set comes with metal dice (called daayam), wooden pawns all packed in a fabric pouch.Title: Dayakattam game set

‘Kavade’ in kannada means “Cowrie Shells”. KAVADE is a niche Toy Hive which strives to promote traditional, value enriched learning through games without moving too far away from nature. The Toy Hive has aligned with self-help groups working with natural materials for a sustainable livelihood. A game with a set of 4 or 6 cowrie shells has so much to teach us. Several emotions are stirred up when the shells fall with their openings upwards; the sound that reigns when they fall in this manner is an unparalleled joy…some simple pleasures that go on to make a HAPPY CHILD who will carry sweet memories of ‘growing up’. In an age when our children (and we!) are bombarded with television, videogames & plastic toys, it is imperative that we re-open our treasure chest of traditional games. Kavade has a repertoire of fun-filled Traditional Games which are on the verge of extinction, Games & Learning aids made using eco-friendly materials and a wonderful range of Brainteasers along with science & toys related books. Various raw materials like Palm leaves, Grass, Shells, Fabric, Wood, Canvas & Elephant dung have been used for making these products. It doesn’t stop at being a toy store. Kavade welcomes like minded game enthusiasts to come together on a regular basis to play a game or two & relive our good old days. Periodical workshops, conferences are some of the activities at the toy hive."
