Er tong le yuan 兒童樂園, meaning "Children's Paradise",
was one of the pictorial magazines we enjoyed reading in our childhood years.
It began publication in Hong Kong in January 1953,
and ceased in December 1994.

Magazines like this opened up our eyes and minds.

This is the inaugural issue published in January 1953.
