Mum saw the word(s) "Playtime" and thought it would be suitable for me (bless her), but the reality is, this would suit me much more if I had decided to go down the path I started in the early 90s when I was working in Interior Design, where my lifestyle revolved around such designery-goodness haha
Key words to take not here: "Artisans", "Craft" and "Designer". The usage of the dragon motif seen in Singapore heartland's playgrounds in the 70s adapted into a rocking horse, is inspired. And the retro-designed ping-pong table would make a fab conference table too, IMHO! At lest in the fictional imaginary TOYSREVIL HQ … #wistful-sign…
Make sure you smile and say "hi" to the folks running the place, and I am sure they'll sort you out and introduce you to stuff on display … I wouldn't know as I did not and no one bothered me as I walked around, but I see other visitors did, and have a fun time being presented with the stuff on display, it seems haha
