A Note on Thanksgiving


We saw a good crowd turn out at last Saturday WAM Carnival, and for some of our customers and friends who have come over at Hugiaino’s booth to mingle and purchase some dementia (aquapaint, puzzles, robotic cat, etc) and inter-generation (mini-bean bag throw, klask, Spot it, etc) needs. It was an appreciative event among partners, innovators and customers. We hope to serve you better as we look forward to the end of the year.

We are looking forward for your feedback at our contact page as well. Please feel free to send us a feedback, yes anything to help us improve our service and collaboration.
