  • Description

    WITH CHRISTMAS THIRTY DAYS AWAY, THE JAPANESE OPENED A WORLD TOY FAIR IN THEIR CAPITAL, TOKYO, ON NOVEMBER 17. THE FAIR, WHICH IS BEING HELD AT A LEADING DEPARTMENT STORE, HAS ON DISPLAY TOYS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.

    FOR THE BOYS, THERE ARE TOYS FROM THE AGE OF ELECTRONICS -- BATTERY-POWERED GUNS, GROUND-TO-AIR MISSILES, TANKS, AIRCRAFT, VEHICLES AND THE MONORAIL. CHILDREN WERE ALLOWED TO PLAY WITH SOME WOODEN TOYS. TOY MANUFACTURERS HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN THE GIRLS. THERE ARE TALKING-DOLLS, AND A VARIETY OF COOKING UTENSILS AND TEA SETS.

    ALL DECORATED FOR THE FESTIVE OCCASION, THE STORE IS CROWDED EVERYDAY. MOTHERS AND THEIR CHILDREN JOSTLE WITH OTHER EXCITED FAMILIES AS THEY TRY TO CATCH A GLIMPSE OF THE TOYS. THE TOYS ARE NOT FOR SALE, BUT ORDERS CAN BE PLACED FOR THEM.

    A DONALD DUCK OUTFIT WAS WORN BY ONE MAN WHO GAVE AWAY SWEETS TO THE CHILDREN. THE ARRAY OF TOYS IS NOT ONLY AMAZING THE CHILDREN BUT THEIR PARENTS, TOO.

    WITH ALL THESE TOYS ON DISPLAY, THE PERENNIAL PROBLEM OF WHAT TO GIVE TO THE CHILDREN FOR CHRISTMAS SHOULD BE SOLVED BY PARENTS MUCH EASIER. ALL THE TOYS WILL BE SOLD SHORTLY AFTER THE FAIR CLOSES EARLY NEXT WEEK.
