My China Toy Trip / 5 April to 20 April 2008

This is another fruitful trip for me this year as I am exploring more china toy stories in other cities of China beside Shanghai. The 1st station is a little town which took me 2 hours travel from Beijing. In this little town, there’s a small tin toy factory produce many tin toys which formerly manufactured by Beijing No.1 Toy Factory. After the Beijing No.1 Toy factory closed down few years ago, this little factory bought over their mouldings and continue the China Tin Toy Dream. πŸ™‚

This is the environment around the factory.

These are the Beijing tin toys.

Factory workers are assembling the wind-up dinosaur tin toy.

Before assembling, this is how Jumping Frog looks like. (FUN) πŸ™‚

This is Monkey Riding Tricycle tin toy…

This is the room to store the mouldings.

This is the mouldings of wind-up Penguin Tin Toy.

And this is the mouldings of Rolling Tin Toy Cat.

After visiting the tin toy factory, i went to visit a famous Tangram Collector, Wei and her husband. I have been knowing them for many years but this is my first time to visit their home in Beijing.

Part of their collections.

We went for dinner after our gathering, Wei and her husband, Peter brought me to this interesting restaurant. Delicious!

Peter enjoyed the food too… πŸ™‚

After dinner with Peter and Wei, I visited Zhang Yang and his sweet wife. Zhang Yang is a famous China Tin Toy collector in Beijing and this is my 1st time to meet him.

I gave my book to Zhang Yang as a gift and he liked a lot. πŸ™‚

I wake up early in the next day and walk around the hotel i stayed. Quiet a beautiful environment…

Next stop is visiting a “tiny” wooden toy factory (Fun again) πŸ™‚

This shows how the worker paints the children wooden pen. πŸ™‚

Two cute little girls manufactured by factory owner… ha! πŸ™‚

A wooden toy town.

Dennis, Daisy (my partner who ho;ld the camera) and I went to visit this famous wooden toy town which locate at Yun He. (Dennis is an Australian toy wholesaler and retailer)

Wooden factories everywhere in town…. wow!

Wooden toy production house.

This is the wooden toy factory where we visit, quiet big to me, but in fact it’s not that big when compared with a real huge wooden toy factory at Yun He.

Dennis is demonstrating…

Different wood will be used for different wooden toy, but sometimes not based on different toy’s needs, it also based on customers’ budget and requirement.

That’s how the original wood look like before becoming a beautiful wooden toy. (Isn’t it beautiful?)

This is the production department at level 3 of the factory where all the workers assemble the wooden toy house.

This is their sample room where show their sample toys to their potential customers.

After visiting the toy factory, the owner invites us to try a countryside chicken for dinner where takes us about 15 mins travel from his factory.

This is where the small restaurant is. Outside has many countryside dogs and as I like dogs, so would like to say a hello to them but no response…. 😦 They look so cool….. wow!

Here is the food, countryside chicken pot…the soap ok, but the chicken meat…is too hard….

Countryside chicken, fried countryside vegetable and original fried potato chips (not those we bought from supermarket)
