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.

Peter and Thomas come to Shanghai during my exhibition. They are the founder of Premium ClassiXXs GmbH, who own a famous toy car brand – BUB ( BUB is a toy company in Germany since 1851, http://www.bub-toys.com ). We know each other through a business relationship. We are helping them to produce a wind-up Tin Toy Car at this moment and the toy car should be ready by this year.

HK Asia TV is here today to interview me. They are surprised that my museum is in Singapore as when they are in Singapore last year, STB (Singapore Tourist Promotion Board) never introduced our museum to them. But the crew and the reporter said they will visit Museum of Shanghai Toys in their next trip to Singapore. Wow…… πŸ™‚

In fact, the most interesting part for this exhibition is not our museum collection, it should be our punching machine :-). In order to attract the eyeballs from our visitors, either adults or kids, we bring along our small punching machine from my toy factory to the exhibition and demonstrate how toy workers assemble tin toys. Many kids would like to find out what’s that and they even have a chance to use their small legs to press the punching machine. Haha!
