A Sporting Life
The growing popularity of sports of all kinds is bolstered by a seemingly endless number of televised events. As a result, children of all ages quickly identify with various games and pastimes and, with playtime fast becoming sports time, Hong Kong responds with a myriad of games from the traditional to the latest hot favourites.
Bo Wah Toys Co Ltd specialises in soft stuffed toys and supplies a wide range of colourful sports balls - everything from rugby, to football and baseball. Fluorescent colours and designs for water sports all figure in the company's product line-up.
For a smart looking and fun large-size racket-and-ball game set made of quality plastic, the Boomball set from Funmark Toys Industrial Ltd is sure to please. This set has a loud "swat" sound that adds to teenage fun, and gives new meaning to the word racket.
Children can create a junior home bowling alley with this bowling set complete with seven-inch high, brightly coloured ten pins. There is also an innovative suction ball game set, which flashes as players vie for a win. Both games come from Ao Jie Plastic Toys Fty Ltd.
When it comes to mini-sets for little hands, the plastic golf and table tennis sets - including nets and suction clamps - from Chinasia Products Ltd certainly attract attention. Other exciting pastimes from this manufacturer include tennis racket, basketball, and doorball sets.
The assortment of game balls from Moon Leader Ltd covers many pastimes and uses. For a synthetic leather look, the firm offers matt PVC glued-panel (triangle pattern) footballs in addition to volleyballs and footballs in a hand-sewn high foaming PVC material with a soft feel.
American pool is a popular game grabbing a lot of attention thanks to TV coverage. This mini pool table with cues and accessories from Silver Angel Industrial Ltd stands on sturdy legs for maximum delight. A Challenger ice hockey game is another item sure to generate lots of fun.
