Toy Town (English Version)


Making toys was new to Hong Kong. Most toy manufacturing pioneers started with little formal education, had next-to-no capital and relied on trial and error to learn the business. Yet within 15 years, Hong Kong would become the world’s second largest toy exporter, overtaking Germany in 1964, leaving only Japan to beat…it was nothing short of a miracle.

In this trailblazing industry biography, veteran toymakers and their international partners share their triumphs and setbacks, shedding light for the first time on Hong Kong’s untold toy story.
