Default New Brand: Baby Toyss

Just recently another new brand has appeared in 400 scale named bizarrely as Baby Toyss - I assume these names must play better in the Asian market? Anyway the models are a trio of Cathay releases and they seem related to a 1:200 brand albeit they appear to be using JC's moulds:

Probably find Baby toyss translates more towards, small models, or tiny replicas or something like that.

So far I've seen them only for sale at a Hong Kong FB store, wings400.com and Aviation Megastore in AMS

Given the behaviour of the collectorate at times, perhaps it is aimed squarely at us...

Yeah, if you do a 'translate' over the Chinese text on a Taobao page with a model on it, the word 'Baby' appears often.

That isn't model related. They use the term baby to talk about taobao in general and because the taobao logo is I believe a weird kind of baby. If you do any search and it can't find the subject the site will say: "No related baby found"

So perhaps the 'baby' is the item searched for then ? Either way it seems to be some sort of Chinese colloquialism beyond our western cultural references.
