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.
As the toy fair has not started yet, so I use few days to walk around Nurnberg….the scene is really beautiful…specially when I see the snow in Germany…
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.
A shop which only sell lead toys…very beautiful, each toy is hand painted. Feel like bringing this concept back to Singapore…but not sure whether this kind of shop can survive in Singapore market… 🙂
