Plush & Stuffed Toys(HKTDC Toys & Games , Vol 01,2006)
Plush and stuffed toys make classic gifts for youngsters, who may well hang on to them as favourites for years to come. The following selection demonstrates that Hong Kong toy makers have a host of cuddly animals designed to delight children the world over.
Heng Sheng Toys Fty (HK) Co Ltd introduces a series of extra-large stuffed toys that are certain to delight youngsters. Incorporating electronics for accompanying musical acts, children can make bears, frogs and dogs take turns performing their favourite songs. One doggy duo even has an infrared link-up for interactive fun.
Hitting The Spot
A silky, floppy style gives warmth to the stuffed toys made by Hyco Int'l Ltd. These friendly little frolickers come in a collection that includes a largish puppy, a lion, a bear and a nutty donkey. Their facial features combine with their animal characteristics in a humorous way that really hits the spot.
Christmas and fun are the key themes among the plush toys from Ideal Industrial Ltd. Classic features and styles make the range assured perennials, and the kind of cuddly toy that will last into teenage years. There's the classic teddy, a Christmas reindeer with a hat and scarf, plus an always-popular panda.
Donkeys are the in-thing for Lung Fung Int'l Enterprises Ltd, which offers a wide range from sitting donkeys to donkey rucksacks, comfy slippers that bulge with donkey characteristics, donkey bags and even donkey tissue box covers. The fur is a plush material that has a fine soft touch.
Bears are all the rage at Prime Toys Co Ltd and, as befits bears in the woods, they come with comfy fitting clothes for the outdoors. Little scarves and hardwearing jeans make these toys ideal companions for youngsters, while the fur comes in different grades of materials varying from fine-and-soft to loose-and-soft.
Teddy Bear Kingdom
The teddy bears from the Transocean Group are cleverly attired to please. A good example is the racing bear with its flamboyant outfit that is all set for the course. Another bear comes with more classic lines, although with a nod to the charms of Bonnie Scotland. The cute 'carpet dogs' will grace any doorstep, and that's the charm of these cute creatures.
