TOY SOUL 2016 (Dec 16-18, 2016)
TOY SOUL (www.toysoul.hk) is an annual “toy expo” in Hong Kong which focuses on toys / collectibles and related products primarily from the Asia (such as China, Macau, Tai Wan, Japan, Korea and Thailand etc). Launched in 2014, this year’s event happens between December 16th thru to 18th, and like it’s previous years’, happens in the year end, and a somewhat fitting close to a year of toy-ness, wherever you may be around the world!
This might well be the last event I will cover on this blog before 2016 ends too (TOYSOUL2015 / TOYSOUL2014), which always presents a “challenge”, as I am not physically there, as much as I want to be haha … Nevertheless, interested folks can stay on top of my coverage with THIS tag #TOYSOUL2016 :)
“Urban Vinyl”s and it’s ilk from Hong Kong are what started me down this #toylife, so it is as well a “personal treat” visiting this event is for me - “online” or otherwise haha
Held at Star Hall & Rotunda two, 3/F, Kowloon Bay International Trade & Exhibition Centre (KITEC @ No.1 Trademart Drive, Kowloon Bay, Kowloon, HK), the ticketed entry features artist designed tickets, and the show will feature participating artists such Sticky Monster Lab (Korea), Chino Lam & Mame Moyashi (HK), Winson Ma, Kenny Wong, William Tsang, Pucky & Kasing Lung with How2Work, PLAY, IxDOLL, Ryan Lee, Unbox Industries, among others!
And while we await a full exhibitor list and updates on exclusives, here are some snaps of the event conference held in Hong Kong (a couple of weeks back) and featured above is a video from HK Rapper “MastaMic” (In Cantonese with no English subs, alas :p)!
