Western Toys in Shanghai in 1930s

P5170080 800x600

Have bought few nice pictures recently. Three pictures show Chinese kids carried Teddy Bear and another large picture ( about A2 size ) shows a lady carried an American Doll. These three pictures help me to understand what kind of western toys exported to Shanghai during 1930s to 40s.

Little Children Museum

P4020108 640X480

GOOD NEWS! There’s a new local children museum was set up last year and it named CHILDREN LITTLE MUSEUM. I was there last week and found that it’s very interesting. Inside the museum, you are not only seeing old toys which played by kids during 50s to 60s last century, but also seeing a little book shop, little primary school, barber shop..etc. Although the shop, bookshop is just a prop, but they look really real and these are all handmade by the owner, Mr. Alan Tan. Children Little Museum is somewhere near Arab street. visitors are allowed to take photos, buying old school goodies and explore what parents play during kampong days.

It’s the 1st time for my toy company to join the Nurnberg Toy Fair 2009. Well…we are at Hall 2 this year, not a big hall, mostly are wooden toy companies. Although there are many vistors from Spain, England, Germany, France Italy, Korea passing by our booth everyday, but however, they are only looking for small quanties, so business not really fantastic in this fair for us.

My partner and I are invited to attend a Pre Fair Party ( Nurnberg Toy Fair 2009) which organized by Peter, the owner of Premium Classic. As the party is at his office, so I have a chance to see most of his products under the brand, BUB (www.bub-toys.com), a famous toy company since 1851.

Europe Trip (23 Jan – 14 Feb) / Part 14 / Antique Toy (B)

IMG_1935

Rudger is one of the top and famous toy collectors in Germany. Not only that, he is also a famous author who wrote many books about anitque German toys. Because of Peter, my partner and I have an opportunity to visit his studio or should say a small toy museum. When you stepped in his gallery, there are plenty of toys which attract my eyeballs. Although I only collect China made toys, but still feel excited when I see so many antique toys.
