GOOD NEWS! We are happy to announce to every Astro Boy Fans that we are lucky to get the Astro Boy license this year and produce the Astro Boy (Movie version http://www.astroboy-themovie.com) Tin Toy. It should be out by November and hope the Astro Boy Fans will like it. The price is not fixed yet but is affordable, so not to worry. In Singapore, this toy will be on sale at TANG’S STUDIO (VIVO CITY only) and Museum of Shanghai Toys, Singapore.

According to this new Astro Boy movie, we create 2 versions for this toy. One with jacket and one without jacket. Do let us know which version you like. 🙂
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.
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.
Traditional German food, sausage, bread…sausage, bread…and sausage…. 🙂
Say cheese! 🙂
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.
Before we left, Rudger know that I like Chinese toys, so he invited me to his warehouse and see whether I can find any interesting toy there…
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. It is a very very beautiful museum which I ever seen and I hope my museum, Museum of Shanghai toys have a chance to develop it until like this in one day. It’s really amazing….! 🙂
A very beautiful museum shop.
Peter is free this evening, so he brought us to see one of the biggest antique toy shop in Nurnberg. But unfortunately I can’t find any old chinese toys there… 😦 but still interesting to see so many German made toys.
I am going to visit few toy museums and some special museums within this Europe trip and hope to bring some new concepts back to Singapore like lighting, displaying…etc. Today, I am at the Catalunya Toy Museum, it is one of the best toy museums in Europe… I LOVE IT
