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.

My partner and I are invited to attend a Pre Fair Party ( Nurnberg Toy Fair 2009) which organized by Peter, the owner of Premium Classic. As the party is at his office, so I have a chance to see most of his products under the brand, BUB (www.bub-toys.com), a famous toy company since 1851.

Europe Trip (23 Jan – 14 Feb) / Part 14 / Antique Toy (B)

IMG_1935

Rudger is one of the top and famous toy collectors in Germany. Not only that, he is also a famous author who wrote many books about anitque German toys. Because of Peter, my partner and I have an opportunity to visit his studio or should say a small toy museum. When you stepped in his gallery, there are plenty of toys which attract my eyeballs. Although I only collect China made toys, but still feel excited when I see so many antique toys.

Visiting toy museum is always an exciting journey to me. I have visited several toy museums in Japan and UK many times, but this is my first time to visit a toy museum at Nurnberg.
