Taking A Ride with Knock-Off Hello Kitty & Doraemon Model Cars
Spotted at my neighbourhood “value”-shop: Knock-Off Model Cars! And while I am wholly unsure if these model cars actually do exist as legit products in the first place (Cannot call them “bootlegs” when they are not “copied” from an existing product :p), BUT there is no doubt in my mind that they have bootlegged THE CHARACTERS!
Available on the shelf were to character cars: a pink “HOLLOW KIKI” school bus model, and a “DORA CHAN: DO RADIO” VW car! And if you really need further prompting, they might well be knock-offs of “Hello Kitty” and “Doraemon” ~ Heh.
These (seemingly) die-cast metal cars are priced at SG$10.90 each (I would consider buying it at half the price tho… :p), come snuggly packed in a window box, with the back graphics on the packaging box showcasing the entire line-up of cars, including a VW Mini Van and a Morris Mini - BOTH of which I’d really like to have, please!
But, NO, they were no where in sight … I think I’ll need to keep my eyes open next time I come across such stores in the heartlands :)
