Toys are not only children's playmates; they also bear testimony to changes over time. For Hong Kong, toys have a special meaning because the city was once the world's largest toy manufacturing hub, with orders coming from all around the world. The volume of toys produced here was astoundingly large, and Hong Kong toys naturally reflected global trends. This catalogue features approximately 330 selected toys that were made in Hong Kong or were well known among Hong Kong people. Using historical images, the book allows readers to reminisce about their childhood, and at the same time narrates the interesting stories behind the different kinds of toys, the glorious history of the Hong Kong toy industry, and how toys have adapted to the new era.
