HA NOI (VNS) — Bookworm is hosting an exhibition of tin toys made of scrap metal which are usually sold on streets during the Mid-Autumn Festival.
Fewer people living in Ha Noi's suburban craft villages are making the toys now, thanks to increasing urbanisation. Only one family is keeping up their tradition, and has even turned toy-making into a profitable business.
This year, tin ships that can chuff along under their own steam are on sale in Ha Noi. A limited edition of the top-of-the-line models can be bought at Bookworm.
Bookworm is at 44 Chau Long Street. — VNS
