Dolls & Toys of Tripura

The craftsmen of this bamboo rich state have made indigenous toys using the most abundant resource of the state to include the bamboo pop gun. The pop gun releases a small pellet which is made of bamboo and is developed for the innumerable bird and animal traps that are used locally.

Tiny bamboo whistles made from small diameter culm lengths and bamboo flutes of different types are also made which are used as toys or for professional use. Apart from these, Agartala has a tradition of making small animals from bamboo splits.
