Robots(HKTDC Toys & Games , Vol 01,2006)

Space Invaders

Space exploration is a hot topic today and Hong Kong's toys manufacturers are zooming in on the images seen on TV and in print. Space, the final frontier, is an enterprise with enormous connotations for children, and toy makers are happy to provide and please. Robotic toys and machines are an important part of the space-theme scenario.

Motor-Bot Fun

The Moto-Bot interchanger is a three-in-the-series motorbike-to-robot plastic toy from Champion Crown Industries Ltd. Clear instructions come with the toy, which is intended for ages three years and up. Colours are green, pink and blue, with connecting parts in silver and black. The robot arms swivel and the wheels turn when it is transformed into a motorbike.

Walking Action

Robo Warrior II from Wai Dick Toys Co Ltd features a number of flashing lights, a selection of electronic sounds, a strong walk and an arm that rises and lowers for combative action. For ages five years and up, this smart and clean looking plastic-housed toy has a solid look about it that will delight any boy.

Free-Wheeling

Flying Dragon Toys Mfy Ltd offers both die-cast metal and plastic transformable toys such as this Emergency-Bot with light and sound. Both police and fire services are fully featured, with a single press of a button starting all the action. The Dinosaur-Bot is offered in a series of 11 collectibles.

Walking Tall

The Robot Competitor walks almost as well as a human being, while the Space Marshall does 360?turns and features full sonic control. These automated toys from Kwong Fei Expectation Electronic Co Ltd really perform well, and give the feel of being straight from outer space.

Ringside Seat

See the bulging muscles of the Boxing Fighter from Happy Kid Toy Group Ltd. He comes with a full-function infrared remote control unit and an equally large punching bag. This fighter can train - there are three eye expressions - as well as fight, and during combat, three "thunder bar" hits is a knockout. Punches come in great variety and all rounds are counted.

Robotic Cars

In cooperation with car maker Toyota, Happy Well Int'l Enterprise Ltd introduces a Road Bot series comprising a Land Cruiser, a Supra and an MR2 that function as car-robots - all with lights and sound, car doors that open and hoods that lift up. These models are intended for children aged five years and up.

Serious Fun

The amusing robot Space Fighter from Great Int'l Toys Ltd is a towering, battery-operated plastic toy with a flashing light, sound and "super mighty fighter ability". It can also turn 90?degrees. Then there's Aether Robot, a less serious new design with a realistic voice, flashing lights and a built-in sense of fun for all.
