(EDITED) WHO-ARE: Toy Gen 童真社 is made up of two designers who lead the game, who are themselves players who collect toys of all types. After having enjoyed different designer toys, they felt it was better to think about designing something, and hence started the creation of their own brand.
"Each has its own favorite type of toy, and the design ideas will not be the same. Conceiving eccentric, interesting, cute and fantasy themes, like our Chinese brand name, we must also remember innocence. We hope that players will be satisfied with the quality of our products and that we want to do!"
