SHANGHAI TRIP – TOY DESIGNER HUNTING 14-27 January 2008 (Part 1)

This is my 1st journey to Shanghai in 2008. Again, this is also my another fruitful trip as I finally found out who is the toy designer and the box artist behind the SPACE TANK, one of the popular toy in USA and the only robot toy made in China in 60s. 🙂

  1. Thanks for searching the forgotten heroes behind the toys. The toy designers look younger than their age, maybe they are young at heart, always trying to explore interesting things.
