Toy stall on Apliu Street, Kowloon
While Apliu Street might be "Toys for Big Boys" there are actually real toys for children as well on sale. Several stalls such as this one stock a range of toys, mostly simple and low cost, but a few higher end items including remote control items which cross over between "big boy" and "small boys"!
Directly sourcing their items from wholesalers and manufacturers in nearby parts of China these toy vendors, though small, are able to offer interesting options that go beyond the normal fare found in big name toy shop chains in Hong Kong.
Small toy vendors carry small stocks and so turn over to the latest items rapidly, so you may see toys following newest trends in the Apliu Street before they arrive in the big malls or high streets.
From Velcro dartboards to mini basket ball hoops, from wind up toy airplanes through puzzle books to kids toy computers. Stalls like this are fun to browse through whether you are choosing a gift for a child travelling with you, or selecting something to take back to give to your kids at home.
