What is the logic on how you reach to the solution
By the way you are a good puzzler just be more descriptive in your answers and you can ask puzzles also ha ha ha

12.8 days or 12 days + 4 hours 48 mins on 13th day.
Total labour hours required for 120 toys = 12*8*8 = 768 labour hours
With 10 labourers and 6 hours a day of wrok,
labour hours available = 10*6 = 60 labour hours
No.of days required with 60 labour hours per day = 768/60 = 12.8
