My Childhood in Hong Kong- Ch.6: Visit my dream toy
Transformer robot: Dream toy of a lot of kids
As a girl, I was not a fan of toy robot, but I still remembered almost all boys loved Transformer robots. However, it was a luxury toy for the kids in the old Hong Kong. In order to “own” a Transformer, boys brought toy cards.
Toy card was another popular toy for Hong Kong and some Asia kids in 80s and early 90s. The card images were usually cartoon characters, robots, and pop singers. I was one of the collectors too. It was popular because of the low price. It was just HK$1 for each card (approx US$0.15). The picture below was another popular cartoon, Dragon Ball.
