Because toys will be toys!

Kids love toys, there’s no denying it, but when it comes to spending our hard-earned dollars on things they will soon outgrow, we want to know we are buying the best there is. So say goodbye to less-than-fabulous plastic trinkets (that break in no time but do not biodegrade!) and learn which stores are the best for educational, entertaining and – most importantly – high-quality toys. We have rounded up retail and online toy stores in Hong Kong, along with options for subscriptions and rentals.

Many businesses are taking extra precautions, but please make sure you follow the latest government advice and stay home if you have recently travelled overseas, have interacted with anyone who has been away, or display any symptoms.
