Gathering the Strength of Toy Lovers to Challenge the Guinness World Record for “The World’s Largest Remote Toy Brick Car”
The opening ceremony of the “HK Toy Museum @ The Link” was held today, and Pang and other officiating guests, including George Hongchoy, CEO of The Link, Hilda Wong, Head of Marketing of The Link, and famous DJ Sammy Leung, entered the stage on a “Dream Chariot”, which was specially made by local toy group “Dr. Bricks” under The Link’s invitation, to celebrate the opening of the “Hong Kong Toy Museum @ The Link”. The chariot was painstakingly assembled by 10 people using 200,000 toy bricks for a continuous 300 hours over 2 weeks, and The Link will challenge the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest remote toy brick car. The vibrant opening ceremony attracted over fifty members of the media.
