Designing Minds(HKTDC Toys & Games , Vol 02,2007)

Arts & Crafts

A child's imagination is a treasure trove of creative ideas that can become fantastic pieces of art with the right arts and crafts materials. With a little help from Hong Kong toy makers, children are putting pen to paper, or other bits and pieces, and turning their visions into decorative art

 

Mug Shots

Kasinda Ltd believes these Design-a-Mugs let children make perfect home-decorated gifts for occasions like Mother's Day. Simply slip a picture inside the mug and snap in the white plastic insert and the mug is ready for hot or cold beverages. It comes with three ready-to-colour pictures, or make your own. Colour pens are not included

Crafty Minds

Law Tai Hang (HK) Ltd has created a huge range of supplies for the young arts and crafts enthusiast, covering almost any medium. Create personalised cards with an embossing set, cut a paper-cut picture with a paper craft set or make a fish coin bank from colourful Wonder Clay. Other items include a fun dough bucket set and a sticker fun set

Steady Hands

Wintech Ltd offers a mini, two-way, fold-up tracing set with magnetic drawing board that is great for copying pictures. Secure a picture onto the clipboard and trace the image reflected by the tinted screen onto plain paper. It can be used by either left- or right-handed children. Or create a zany picture that glows with the blacklight art Wiggle Writer, a motorised pen that shakes as it writes. Mini blacklight and two gel pens are included

Paint Box

Kid's Toys (HK) Ltd likes to give budding artists a great start with a compact table-art easel. This 37-piece set includes crayons, marker pens, poster paints, coloured chalks, sponges, brushes, paper and, of course, the easel. Better still, the easel doubles as a handy carrier. Junior sculptors could try making the Kid's Dough Mr Bug set, which comes with playdough and plastic bug parts for decoration

Jolly Roger

Asaph Global Ltd believes pirates are never out of favour with children, and this easy-to-build 3-D pirate ship means kids can make their own boat. Measuring 21.5cm long, 22cm wide and 26cm high, this ship is made of high-quality cardboard and comes with a set of 12 colouring pens for customising the decoration

Changing Colours

Fulon Development Ltd is ISO 9001-certified and specialises in colour markers. There is a huge range to choose from: for the fashion-conscious there are T-shirt markers that are laundry-safe up to 60°C and conform to EN71 and ASTM D4236. For artists, there are magic colour-changing makers or stamp-cum-super tip markers to name but a few

Colour Six

Lai On Products (Industrial) Ltd says little hands will find the Colorotor easy to grip when drawing. The star-shaped plastic holder has a crayon embedded in each tip, making it easy to find the right colour and even easier to pack away. The firm also offers Silk Clay arts and crafts sets, a soft modelling compound that stretches to different thicknesses and air-dries in 24 hours to create items like wind chimes
