Daboxtoys Model Cars DMC was founded by Felix Kwong as a hobby thanks to his love for model cars. He started collecting toy cars when he was 2 years old with Tomica, Matchbox, Majorette, and Hot Wheels. His first English words were "Toyota and Honda". When he was little, his favorite thing to do was to look out from the window of his dad's car and name every single car that passes by. As you can see, cars and model cars are my life. Little does he know that it would turn into an online and physical shop that connects with collectors around the world
DMC was started back in 2003 as an eBay shop as it was (and still is) where collectors go to find collectibles. The word "Daboxtoys" might not seem like a word or might be hard to pronounce for most but it does have a meaning behind it. One of the favorite moments in any child's life is to open "the" "box" of a toy or model car like a Matchbox or Tomica. The idea of opening "the box of toy" always put a smile on anyone's face and that is exactly the feeling we want you to have!
And it is this passion for model cars that resonates with collectors ever since. Since 2010, we have added more than 20 different brands to our shop and received over 5,000 positive feedbacks in eBay. Our aspirations come from meeting fellow collectors so we started our Facebook Page which to our surprise have gathered over 5,500 collectors from all over the world.
Today, we are not only a retailer but a sole distributor for GreenLight Models (China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Macau), Kyosho 1/64 scale (Hong Kong), IXO Models/J-Collection Models/Premium X Models (Hong Kong) and worldwide distributor for XCO Models. There will be a lot more exciting projects in our plans including making special edition models, collectors gathering and trips, and much more.
We have opened our 1st physical shop "DMC WorkShop" at Room 611, Sea View Estate (海景大廈) Block B, 6 Watson Road in Tin Hau, Hong Kong in February, 2013 which was a huge milestone for us.
2012 was our expansion year and it took a few very key people to make this possible:
Wholesale, Events, Operations and DMC WorkShop
Desmond became a Partner of the DMC in 2012 and is one
of the nicest people you can find.
Desmond is responsible for taking DMC out into the world with our first
events in 2012/2013 which will be the Macau Grand Prix and Hong Kong Toy
Fair. He will also have his hands full
with launching our 1st physical Work-Shop at the end of 2012 which will be located in
Tin Hau, Hong Kong that will play the role of both our new office and shop.
Logistics and Taobao Shop
Simply the friendliest and also one of the nicest
people you will find on this planet. She
is responsible for our wholesale program in Hong Kong, China, and Taiwan while
managing the everyday shipments to customers overseas. She also runs our Taobao Shop in China which
opened in early 2012.
We are not just a shop but a social platform for collectors to gather, share, and talk about the passion of our lives which is model cars.
We sincerely hope that you will find your entire experience enjoyable!
