educational toys in Andhra Pradesh. He wanted to know what factors would help increase the sales of the toys. But he was now faced with a dilemma on how to go about analyzing the data.

The Tiny Toddlers Group was established by Pramod just after he completed his MBA. Pramod, who lived in a joint family in Hyderabad and had a liking for children, began by manufacturing small toys with the help of the disposable plastic and wood material lying around in his house. There were many families in the neighborhood which had kids and the children used to visit Pramod's house nearly every day to buy the toys he made. Pramod not only sold his toys but also got to spend time with the kids, something he really enjoyed doing.
