FRANKFURT, Germany–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ranging from cuddly bears to flying model cars, Hong Kong’s toy
manufacturers will exhibit a wide variety of new products at the Toy
Fair in Nuremberg from January 27 to February 1, 2016. 27 exhibitors
will take part on the combined stand in Hall 12.0 (Stand G-01-1)
organized by the Hong
Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC)
.

A focal point for exhibitors is on toys with technical features such as
drones, model cars and planes and scientific construction kits. Alpha
Animation and Culture (Hong Kong) Company Limited
will introduce its
RC drone “Sky Rover”, controllable with twelve spoken commands. Syma
Technology Co. Limited
will present a quadcoptor with 360 degree
eversion and HD camera and USB-chargeable, driving and flying model

than 288 experiments including operating doorbells with finger-touch

Playsets from a variety of companies are aimed at promoting children’s
creativity. Prosperity

creating own jewellery, while Yick
Wah Plastic Factory Ltd.
shows a do-it-yourself circus with hand
puppets.

On show are also traditional toys including plush toys, model airplanes
and outdoor equipment, like scooters from Nixor
Sports Limited
or balloon sets from Zuru
Limited
.

Hong Kong’s toy industry exported goods up to USD 5.7 billion from
January to November 2015 (-6.6%). Whilst there was a slight export
decline of traditional toys like dolls and puzzles, video games continue
to be in demand. Main export countries were the USA, China, Japan and
Germany.

Based on statements by visitors and exhibitors at the three Hong Kong
fairs for toys, baby products and PBS articles in January 2016, steady
business development for the industry is expected. There is much
interest in licensed products from TV series and films as well as
educational and electronic toys. According to Benjamin Chau, Deputy
Executive Director, HKTDC, toy manufacturers were optimistic that the
growing middle class in China, the two-child policy and an expected baby
boom in the year of the monkey will lead to a growing demand for toys,
baby products and PBS articles in this market by 20 to 30 per cent.
