In order to let more young generation knowing our club, we co-operated with the organiser of CHINA FANTASY 2009 ( A Comic and Game Convention ) to set up a small booth there from 3-6 July this year.
The China Fantasy 2009 attracted over 20,000 visitors every day.
Out staff are trying very hard to promote our products.
New products are on their way…
TIN TOY CLUB is a tin toy collectors’ club which orgainised by MARXU INTERNATIONAL LTD. It’s not only promoting new tin toy products, but also pushing the art of tin toy to more young generations in China.

Hello, girl, u know what’s inside? 🙂
Hi, would you like to join as a tin toy club member? We now have promotion…
CCTV will be launching a new programme about Transport in the past, Lifestyle in the past, Childhood in the past…etc to celebrate the 1st Oct, The China National Day this year. And I am one the interviewees who talked about the past and the history of Chinese toys. The morning interview took about 4 hours, after interviewing me in my Shanghai office, I brought them to my tin toy factory and continuing the interview until 5pm.
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.
SPACE PATROL CAR was manufactured by NOMURA in Japan during the 60s in the last century. We have received an order to make this fantastic battery operated toy car and Mr Wang is working on this project now.
Anyone can tell me which one is the original, and which one is the prototype?
I think Mr Wang also confused which one is the original… haha! 🙂
SPACE WHALE is a wonderful tin toy, was made by YOSHIYA in 1950s. After a deep discussion with my partner, we decided to start this project last year and I am happy to announce to all the tin toy lovers this fantastic tin toy space whale will be out SOON!!!!!! 🙂 Cheers!!
Mr Wang, the toy engineer who worked in Shanghai No.2 Toy factory in the past and now is our staff who help us to make prototype. It’s his first time to see some of his works after 30 over years and the exhibition recall back some of his memories.
Mr Zheng and Mr Wang are colleaques when they both worked in Shanghai No.2 Factory. Mr Zheng is specialised in large battery operated tin toy, rather than small wind-up tin toy.
