India's oldest toy store keeps tradition and profit

Open since 1890, RCS Toys in Delhi has fended off competition from large retailers while keeping its character.

    Many independent shops struggle to compete against large retailers, but for India's oldest toy store that is not really a problem.

    Started in 1890, Delhi's RCS toys has been run by the same family for generations. Its owner says the business has thrived because it has embraced change without losing sight of the past.
