This is the 3rd instalment of our series on Hong Kong Toy Shopping.  Make sure to check out Part 1 and Part 2 also for more tips on where to go toy hunting.

After Komodo Kidz and Tai Yuen, our next stop is In's Point in Yau Ma Tei, Mong Kok.  In's Point is a haven for LEGO lovers!  While some stores also sell anime and collectible stuff, as well as a few Tomicas,  the real reason to visit this place if for LEGO.  The building has 2 whole floors of nothing but toy stores, most of them selling LEGO.  Aside from the vast selection of minifigs and sets, their prices are also one of the lowest we've seen in the region.  While the best prices for LEGO still seems to be in the US, some sellers come pretty close.  Sets here are 20% - 30% cheaper than chain stores in Hong Kong like Toy R Us.  Compared to the Philippines or Singapore, LEGO sets here are cheaper by 40%-50%!  If you're buying several sets, or large (expensive) ones, the price difference may actually be enough to cover your airfare!



Most of the LEGO sets they have on stock are the fast-moving and more recent models.  If you're looking for particular models that aren't part of the latest collection, it would be best to contact them in advance and pre-order.  We pre-ordered some sets and they're very accommodating.  You can contact one of the stores there, Bricks in the Box, and give them a list of the sets you're looking for.  However, if you're just looking for in-season items like LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Frozen or Princess, LEGO Friends, LEGO Marvel or DC Super Heroes and the like, you'll do fine just going there directly.

Most sellers have fixed prices, but the prices vary quite a lot from store to store, so do compare prices before making a purchase.  The sellers here are surprisingly very accommodating and friendly, and don't get mad when you ask around before buying.

Aside from the regular LEGO sets, they also sell tons of mini-figs, that are normally not available individually.  So, if you're into collecting minifigs, you're really going to enjoy this place.  Prices of minifigs vary depending on how rare they are.

Some shops also sell all kinds of loose bricks so if you've lost some pieces from your old sets, you may find replacement pieces here.  Prices will again vary depending on the type of brick - some are sold per piece, while smaller bricks may be sold in packs of 6 or 10.  Whichever type, they're all very reasonably priced.

In's Point is conveniently located along Nathan Road in Mong Kok.  Via MTR, just get off the Yau Ma Tei Station and take exit A2.  Walk towards Nathan Road then turn left.  In's Point will just be a few building away.
