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!

Toy Shopping in Hong Kong - Part 2 : Tai Yuen Street, Wan Chai

This is part 2 of our post on Hong Kong Toy Shopping.

Our next stop after Komodo Kidz in Wong Chuk Hang was Tai Yuen Street in Wan Chai (Hong Kong Island).  This is referred to as the toy street of Hong Kong.  It's not exactly an entire street of toy stores as the name suggests, but there's definitely more than enough toy stores here.

Getting to Tai Yuen is very easy.  Via MTR, just get off at the Wan Chai station, take the A3 exit and walk towards Johnston Road.  Tai Yuen intersects Johnston Road, just a couple of minutes walk from the MTR station.  The first few stores to the left and right, coming from Johnston Road, are all toy stores.

Toy Shopping in Hong Kong - Part 1 : Komodo Kidz, Wong Chuk Hang, Aberdeen

If you're in Hong Kong and plan to do some toy shopping for babies or toddlers, this is definitely one stop you need to make.

Komodo Kidz has a limited range of toys, mostly just for babies and toddlers, but everything they have is ON SALE.  Their popular lines include Chuggington, Thomas and Friends (Wooden Railway sets), Lamaze, ThinkFun, ALEX, the First Years and some others.  Komodo Kidz is the licensed distributor of these brands in Hong Kong.  If any of their brands interest you (or your kids), then the trip to their shop (more like an office) is worth the hassle.
