The recall of thousands of Chinese-made toys by the US toy maker Mattel over the past five weeks could have a positive impact on the Indian market, which is crowded with manufacturers in the unorganised sector.

Do you agree that China's loss could be India's gain? Do you think toy manufacturers from the unorganised sector who do not follow this norm should be brought to book? What steps should Indian toy manufacturers take to prevent recalls?
