Our last and final interviewee for this SHANGHAI TRIP is Mr Qu. He was the chief artist of Shanghai Toys No.2 Factory since 1960s. Most of the packaging and the drawing (Toy Box Art) were done by him from 1960s to 1980s. When we reached his home, he is so excited and opens his bag and shows us what he designed for the past.
Mr Qu decides to donate most of the box art to Museum of Shanghai Toys. He signs his name on all the packaging.
Mr Wang also signs his name on one of the packaging as this toy was designed by him in 1960s.
