After one year’s preparation, the first TIN TOY CLUB (www.tintoyclub.com) was set up in Shanghai in July. 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.
After a friendly recommendation by our staff, this guy is buying 6 pieces of tin toys.
Hello, girl, u know what’s inside? 🙂
Hi, would you like to join as a tin toy club member? We now have promotion…
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.
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.
One of the customers from Australia would like to order our SPACE WHALE TIN TOY.
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! 🙂
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.
Today, 25 Oct 2008, is the 1st day of the exhibition. Although the visitors are not as many as last year when I had my exhibition in HK in the 1st day, but I am still really happy and excited.
Outside the exhibition hall, there is a small toy shop which allows visitors to purchase their childhood memories – TIN TOY. 🙂
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!
