Every time I get a new toy for my daughter, I inadvertently end up playing with it myself, just because toys these days are so complex, so interesting, so fascinating. Interestingly though, (Chinese) toy designers have cleverly integrated readily available (cheap) lighting technology such as LEDs into their creations, making them a little more attractive and appealing to today’s kids (who wants those boring toys from the 80’s anyways?).
At times, I can’t help myself but photograph these creations, sometimes with dramatic results. Presented here, are two of the toys that are (were) my favorites, may they rest in peace (pieces).
