Outdoor & Camping(HKTDC Toys & Games , Vol 01,2006)

On The Right Track

Heading out for a camping weekend is a great way for city slickers to get up close and personal with the Great Outdoors. Providing campers with the necessities to survive a night in the bush is a booming business, and Hong Kong's toy makers are doing their bit to make kid-friendly items for little campers.

Basic Science

Budding botanists will enjoy examining plants and animals with the five-in-one Outdoor Science Set from Eastcolight (HK) Ltd. The set comprises an easy-to-use 35mm camera, a 6x telescope, a torch that clips to a belt, a compass and a watch. Put a child aged eight years and up into the bush for the fun to begin.



Star Gazers

Searching the night sky for the constellations is a popular pastime and the space navigator from Kwong Wah (Lap Kay) Toys Ltd is more than up to the task. The 45x40mm finder scope comes with an extendable aluminium tripod and is suitable for children aged five and above. For daytime viewing, there is the 20x40mm Sky Sweep Telescope that can extend to 36cm, or the Clear View binoculars that have a 4.5x40mm objective lens and handy neck strap.



Listen Up

Nature lovers don't have to be too close to capture the sight and sound of their subject with this nifty Tele-Probe from Wintech Ltd. The long-range listening device comes with detachable components including a telescope. Plug in the earphones, point the probe and switch on the power to hear sound. Focus the 4x telescope by sliding the eyepiece in and out. Pull out the eyepiece to turn it into a pre-focused 30x microscope.



Early Birds

Bird-lovers can augment their outdoor viewing experience with this sound receiver from Tung Lick Int'l Development Co Ltd. The 21cm tall, battery-operated device is equipped with a detachable sonic disk and headphones that make it the perfect partner for bird-watching. This ISO 9001 manufacturer also makes a wide range of binoculars and telescopes that give a good view of nature.



Torchlight Trilogy

Six-year-olds and up will have fun using these torches from LCD games specialist Solar Tune Electronics Ltd. These user-friendly, slim torches not only provide a flashing mode, super-white LED light, they also accommodate an LCD game. The games on offer are Earth Defender, Tennis Sport, Bowling Sport or Wolf Hunting. The torch works off four AG13/LR44 1.5V batteries.


Lantern Fest

Torches are essential camping kit and the all-in-one radio lantern with stopwatch from Pretty Rich Industrial Ltd combines several functions in one handy item. The lantern is fitted with an auto-scan FM radio with detachable control panel, earphones, a compass, a stopwatch and a belt clip for convenient carrying.
