T3: Dreaming of Tomica


Which is the Best?

Do you dream of your own Tomica?? In 2007, Tomy organised a children's car drawing exhibition/contest titled "Shaping Your Dreams by Tomica" held at the 40th Tokyo Motor Show of 2007 where five-year-old kids drew their dream cars and future cars, using their imagination as if they were car designers . The theme of the contest was "Getting Dreams into Shapes – The Car that I Dream of" and it drew a rousing 3,530 entries.


The Winners

The three selected drawings by the judges will be made into Tomica models :cloud9: So who were the winners? In loose translation they were described as follows:


The first one selected was a car with a streamlined body, which looks really fast. I really want to drive a car like this. Speed always fascinates men, regardless of their ages.


The second one is a fantastic car, like a car in a fairy tale. It is a car, but it looks as if it is floating in the sea. Although I cannot tell you any more, it is very interesting how this drawing will be actualised into a Tomica.


The third, and last, one is a very amusing car. If I have to describe it in one word, I would say, "Ka-boom!" as if something exploded. It is not a bus, nor a working vehicle, but both a bus and a working vehicle.
