We have been working diligently for many years to build friendship with our lifelong partners with the children who play and learn with our toys. Our commitment to spread the smile around has been demonstrated by our leadership and active participation in many social events in conjunction with children. It is very important to us how we convey ourselves as a role model who communicates and contributes with our societies, and we would like to proudly present a snapshot of where we are.
