You’ll find that nearly all mannequins are these days produced in China. That probably doesn’t come as a surprise, but it is something that needs to be taken into account when you get a custom range of mannequins developed for a specific promotion.
Chinese designed mannequins have a Chinese look about them. The body shape and features are different enough from western body and face structure to be noticed. When you’re promoting a product you want to get as much agreement from the consumer as possible, and an important part of this is that mannequins should be a close image of the people you’re targeting.
The solution is to get the cast designed locally and then have the mannequin construction outsourced to China, which isn’t nearly as expensive as many people think. So make sure you do your market research first ( info about this on our shop mannequins and display mannequins pages ) and get the design done at home so that the figures are a good match to your public.
