Chairmen Of The Boards

Board Games

EVERY family has a storage cupboard filled with board games. These games are the stuff of many a long-haul journey and annual family holidays. Hong Kong manufacturers create a range suitable for any budget and purpose.

 

Magnetic games and dartboards are one of the specialities of Y. & W. Industrial Ltd. Do not expect traditional dartboards from this company's Disney-approved factory: the targets feature cartoon-like characters with themes like Hallowe'en and soccer. Even the traditional scoring lines are redrawn and given a new interpretation. Major markets are Australia, the Middle East and France.
Get that ghost...  
   
Oversized pieces from J&M EVA World Ltd make playing board games a cinch for even the youngest or most near-sighted of players. Get three in a row of these larger-than-average noughts or crosses and there can be no dispute over who is the winner.
  Tic Tac Toe...
   
The classic game of snakes and ladders is given a fun and friendly face in this version by Top Way Industrial Co. These snakes give huge grins to players who have the misfortune to land on them. The 15x15-inch board is made of 800gsm cardboard, accompanied by brightly coloured plastic pieces and a black-and-white dice. Its strongest market is the US.
Snakes alive!...

Nearly The Real Thing

Children's Fashion Accessories

GIRLS spend hours of fun pretending to be grown-ups. When it comes to role models, Mom is most important for growing girls, so why not give them pretty, non-toxic cosmetics and miniature versions of Mother's jewellery?

For the slightly older girl, these sets from Kin Tai Industrial Co are obvious winners. Featured are a purse, pair of shoes and carrying case; a matching purse, hat and choker set with jewellery; and a purse with choker and hair clips. A minimum order of one TEU can include up to four styles.
Cool and chic...  
   
The irresistable appeal of dancing for young girls has inspired Universal Mfg Co to produce this six-piece ballerina's outfit. Universal also makes dolls, doll's accessories, and vinyl and stuffed toys, exports worldwide and has a minimum order of one TEU.
  Star ballerina...
   
Kam Kwong Co goes that bit further. Its offerings include a tiara and wand, necklace and bracelet, jewellery box, "diamond" earrings and other jewellery, as well as combs and brushes. Everything that an aspiring royal princess needs to get ready for a ball at the palace!
Pretty as a princess...

Melody Makers

Musical Toys

MUSIC is one of the earliest sounds a baby learns to recognize, often even before leaving the womb. Tunes continue to give children joy as they grow up. And, as Hong Kong manufacturers well know, musical toys can make sweet music at the cash register.

All children love music and what better combination than a cute dog, cow or frog that also plays music. Manufacturing one million toys a month, Chi Da Toys Enterprises (HK) Co Ltd exports its musical toys to markets in the US, UK and Japan.
Making music...  
   
Plush baby dolls come cleverly disguised as angel-faced cuddly koalas and frogs, who can also play a tune. Plush-toy maker Million Rise Industries Ltd finds these baby toys and pull-string plush toys are big sellers in Panama, Chile, Mexico, Spain and the US.
  Angel face...
   
Battery-operated musical dolls are a speciality of veteran toy maker Takmay Industrial Co Ltd. One of its newest items is the Anita series baby doll lying in a musical cradle. Press a tiny teddy next to the baby and the cradle will swing with a melodic song. The firm has ISO 9001 certification.
Rock-a-bye baby...

Speeding Ahead

Remote/Radio-Controlled Toys

RADIO-CONTROLLED vehicles are now more realistic, true to life, faster and packed with more features than ever before. When it comes to product lines, Hong Kong's remote- and radio-controlled toy manufacturers are way ahead of the competition on terms of style, functionality and design.

Silverlit Toys Mfy Ltd's Turbo Twister is a 27/49MHz, full-function radio-controlled car featuring stunt actions, sound and light effects, and a smart sensor. The hyper-look remote control, which is ergonomically designed, includes buttons to call up three movement patterns - normal, reptile and shark.
Techno toy...  
   
Hi-tech style meets an enduring toy in this radio-controlled Cyber Cop car (MGT-3202) from Megatech Toys Co Ltd. Special features include cyber lighting and sound effects to simulate a battlefield. Both the Cyber Cop and Buzzard (MGT-3201) feature a full range of directional driving. The Buzzard includes 10 distinct actions and many programming possibilities.
  Race to the future...
   
Variety is the name of the game at Lotye Toys Co. Established in 1997, Lotye not only produces a wide range of radio-controlled cars, but also fighter planes and Apache-style helicopters. Plane F-18 328/L4367 is a full-function model that incorporates a realistic aeroplane sound with wing and tail lights. Chocks away!
