There are so many people hoping to buy the toys. It depends on luck,” says Kan.
Kan came to the event along with four friends, who are all big fans of designer toys. One of th狗亚APP入口夜网女神会所
em is Wang Mei, who started collecting designer toys in 2017 and now boasts a collection of more than 1,000.
狗亚APP入口夜网”It’s a great way to socialize with people,” says Wang, 36. “We
share information about designer toys and what we bought on social media.”
When I look at those cute little toys after work, I feel relaxed狗亚APP入口夜网
and warm,” says Wang. “For me, those toys are like affordable art pieces.”
Kan and Wang are typical of the growing number of Chinese toy-collecting enthu
siasts who have emerged in the past few years as the designer toy craze has taken off.狗亚APP入口夜网女神会所
They enjoy buying and collecting toys made from plastic or vinyl
produced by designers or artists. These toys are often associated with different themes, such as anim
als, amusement parks and zodiac signs. The styles of the toys can be cute, funny or even quirky.狗亚APP入口夜网
It all started with Pop Mart, a Beijing-based company that introduced designer toy show
s to the Chinese mainland, and the organizer of the Beijing show as well as one in Shanghai. Three years ago, it sig狗亚APP入口夜网女神会所
ned a contract with Hong Kong illustrator and designer Kenny Wong, who designed Molly, a wide-eyed girl.
About 4 million finger-sized Molly dolls in different series or situations, such as Scho狗亚APP入口夜网
ol Life and Ocean, were sold on the mainland in 2018, each for 59 yuan, one of the best-selling art toys in China.
The idea for Molly came from Wong’s experience in drawing portraits of child
狗亚APP入口夜网女神会所ren at a charity event. To keep the kids still for his portraits, he asked them to sit down w
hile he painted. All the children were pouting as they followed the instruction not to move.
commerce giant pump primes Juhuasuan to cash in on abundant opportunities
Times are changing fast at e-commerce behemoth Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. While st狗亚APP入口夜生活女神会所
ore-openings from a range of global brands like Burberry to Ferragamo were
狗亚APP入口夜生活the norm earlier, they have since been replaced by deals, bargains and growth in lower-tier cities.
Against flattened economic growth and brutally aggressive competition, Alibaba is no
w giving unprecedented priority to Juhuasuan, its group-buying and flash-sale platfor狗亚APP入口夜生活女神会所
m, repositioning it as the top destination for consumers from smaller cities and townships.
狗亚APP入口夜生活The internet giant said recently that it will host a Super Bargain Day from Sept 1, halving prices for 1 million me
rchandise and giving out cash dividends, coupons and other perks. Unlike the
more reputable Nov 11 annual sales event, the 10-day event is targeted at good-quality budget items.狗亚APP入口夜生活女神会所
“We see massive growth in lower-tier cities this year via the Juhuasuan platform. This is the
狗亚APP入口夜生活engine fueling future growth and a bluesea market－meaning opportunities abound for each and e
very industry player to take a share,” said Liu Bo, general manager of Juhuasuan.
Media publications and industry analysts often categorize C狗亚APP入口夜生活女神会所
hinese cities into tiers, defining them based on population, gross domestic prod
狗亚APP入口夜生活uct and other criteria. Tier-one cities normally refer to super metropolises like Beijing and Shanghai.
Alibaba’s strategy to penetrate into lower-tier markets has reaped some early gains. In the
quarter ending June 30, over 70 percent of increased annual active consumers came from less dev狗亚APP入口夜生活女神会所
eloped markets. The company attributed the achievement to initiatives to cater to a b
roader user base, such as “using simpler interfaces for first-time or less-frequent users”.狗亚APP入口夜生活
Realizing the potential, Juhuasuan has announced a slew of plans to rev up services. On the
supply side, the platform aims to help manufacturers digitize their factories through consumer ana狗亚APP入口夜生活女神会所
lytics and the internet of things technology. Liu said he hopes such efforts will foster
brands, create 1 million sought-after items and nurture 10,000 digital plants.

Sunday breakfast meeting that “we don’t like tariffs on the whole … We are in favor of trade pe狗亚APP入口乌托邦品茶微信

狗亚APP入口乌托邦Rarely have European leaders spoken with such unity on an issue. By doing so they will have hoped to drive home the messa
ge to the US leader that in a closely interconnected global economy, no one wins in a trade war, everyone loses.
Hopefully, that message has been received, since the US leader said on Monday that the two sides will begin狗亚APP入口乌托邦
“serious negotiations” soon, as both sides understand the consequences and where the other stands.
China wants to make a deal. But that deal can only be reached based on equality and mutual re狗亚APP入口乌托邦品茶微信

Let us hope his talks with the European leaders have helped the US l

Relaxed price fluctuation limits have enabled the STAR Market stocks to be more timely priced, leading to higher p

狗亚APP入口夜生活女神会所Securities regulators lifted price fluctuation limits for STAR stocks in their first five trading days, and thereafter a 20 pe

Analysts expect trading on the STAR Market to become more rational in the medium term, with valuation levels to bet狗亚APP入口夜生活

valuations, while weaker ones may see a marked divergence in stock price performance.
