How A Chinese Museum Is Winning Over Young Fans With Cute & Creative Souvenirs

Recommended Posts

Have you seen the latest trend hitting a Chinese museum? It's all about turning traditional art into something a bit more... cuddly. Picture this: a chubby, grinning loong (that's a Chinese dragon) toy, inspired by a Ming Dynasty gold ornament.

It's the brainchild of a team of 12 young designers, breathing new life into museum souvenirs and making cultural heritage hits among the youth. This fresh take is not just about cute toys; it's changing the game for museum revenue and how young folks engage with history.
