I used to play with those kind of toys, when I was a child and my country was under Communism. I would like to have one now, but all I can find here in my country are cheap imitations!
Great picture!

Hi Alex, I don't think there's still any russians live in Harbin or other China cities. Because in China, if any foreigner choose the china nationality , he or she need to give up any other nationality.

Are some Russians still living in Harbin?
