Great products for children and it’s my second time buying in modi toys but the customer support is not up-to mark!
Made an order 2 days ago! Want to cancel it and redo it as I forgot to add free mini durga devi! Sent a mail and message immediately but got no response and there is no info about how to cancel my order!
Hi Sasri, our records indicate that you emailed us at 3pm ET on Friday. Our small team was busy fulfilling orders at the time so we weren't able to read and respond to your email immediately. However, you'll be glad to know that we, in fact, did include the free mini Durga Devi, as per our promotion, even though your order technically didn't qualify for it. As a returning customer, we value your support and wanted to ensure you had an opportunity to take advantage of our limited time promotional offer.
Books felt used. Definitely not the quality expected. Regretting purchasing them!
Hi Jateel, I'm so sorry to hear your felt the books you received were used. I can assure you that all of our products -- whether toys or books -- are shipped brand new. However, you may be referring to 3 of the 6 Devi books you received in your Bookish Bundle. Not sure if you read the disclaimer on our website when placing the order, but we wanted to be as transparent as possible about the quality issues some customers may face when they receive the Devi books.

No doubt the book bundle is very colour and cute. My son like the pictures and colour but I must say the story is very good too. Only one thing I say is the cost the books with delivery are very very pricy.
My 3 year old absolutely loves books and I thought this bundle would be a great addition to his bookshelf. I have to say the books are better than I expected. He is very curious and wants to know more. He had read the Ganesha's sweet tooth before and finding a connection between that book and How Ganesha broke his tusk, he is even more intrigued.
I'm glad I got this bundle.
Love the books! 10/10
However, the voice box in Baby Krishna isn’t working at all. Can we get a replacement?
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!
I can not give an honest review because I have yet to receive my order. It has been 6 days since the order was fullfilled per email.
We are so pleased with our ganesha plushie and the two books that we received. My daughter has been enjoying looking at the illustrations.
The only feedback I would have with the books are that they are a bit too wordy. Maybe less words per page so it would be easier for children to follow along with the story.
Thank you for the great products. Looking forward to purchasing more in the future. Thank you.
Thank you so much for the feedback! I agree, the book can feel a bit verbose, especially for really young kids. I'm writing this book, we tried to find a balance between being thorough/educational and fun/simple. It was really challenging, given the subject matter. But our hope is that these books will be cherished for years to come (perhaps when the kids need a refresher on Hindu theology )
I thought I'd get this book because my niece loves your Ganesh plush and now I find myself reaching for her book every once in a while!!
Very cute book, my 1 year old niece loves the pictures
Love how this book has all the different variations of how Ganesh broke his tusk. Even I didn’t know some of the stories (the moon one!). It’s a great way to incorporate multiple sub cultures of India into one.
Quality could have been a little better
I love all the stories to this collection of books, but unfortunately the quality of the book is not the same as the previous three. I know this was to be expected and was reflected in the price, but after paying for shipping, the book was still not cheap enough for the quality. The book arrived already warped and the images a bit faded. I give it 4 stars because I still love the story, but not sure if I would give this as a gift or recommend it to someone to be their first modi toy item. I am afraid if I did that they would not want to buy any of the other items which are of better quality.
My daughter is obsessed with the story of Lakshmi MA and finding her owl vahana. But as was mentioned before we bought it, the physical quality of the book is very poor. I hope it will last for my daughter as she sometimes tends to be a but rough with her books...mind you, she's 2.5. But otherwise, everything else - the story, the illustrations, the colours, etc. - are.great!!
I loved the book! The story and the images were super cute and my son loves them!
The only downside is the paper quality - the layers of pages were separating from the time I received it… and my 12mo old managed to split all of the pages open entirely within a few days.
Hi Ridhima, so glad to hear you and your son love the book! Unfortunately, we are aware of this issue and here's how we recently addressed it: https://www.moditoys.com/blogs/south-asian-brands/an-explanation-about-our-devi-books-on-sale
The quality of the book is not what it used to be. It feels cheaper and not high quality colors as the first books such as the hanuman and Ganesh one
Hi Priyanka, you're right. Here's an announcement we recently made to address the issue we identified: https://www.moditoys.com/blogs/south-asian-brands/an-explanation-about-our-devi-books-on-sale
Great books. Wish they were the thickness of the original books but none the less we LOVE THEM. Thank you for making kid friendly Hindu books.
