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.

Europe Trip (23 Jan – 14 Feb ) / Part 16 / Nurnberg Toy Fair 2009

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.

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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!
