    Searching for quality toys - not plastic junk

    I'm fairly new to Hong Kong and am looking for a store with quality toys -- not the usual junk (e.g. Toys R Us)...

    O.k., not all plastic is bad, but you get the idea...

    I'm talking wooden building blocks, nice stuff...

    I've been around to all the baby-malls -- Euguene, Chicco, etc...but am I missing something?

    Any suggestions??

    Try HABA- it's a German brand with lovely wooden toys. I've seen a small shop in Lee Gardens 2 (one floor down from Mothercare) and also in Times Square (the floor where all the baby shops are). Early Learning Centre in Bumps to Babes has wooden toys. Also Wisekids (various locations)- an ok selection too (along with better quality plastic toys)

    U can go the Wise Kids store at Cyberport. They have great toys, brands such as Brio, Plan Toys, Voila, Villac and more swiss brand toys. U can also go to Barrel of Monkeys in Causeway bay they have very interesting toys but more for 3-4 year onwards. U can also find limited wooden toys at Bumps to Babes and Toys club in Central. But my favourite store in Wise Kids

    I second HABA if you don't mind the price tag. Their wooden stuff is really beautiful and a little bit different. As someone said, Lee Gardens II in Causeway Bay has a store, and Times Square in Causeway Bay up the top.

    Modern Baby in Wellington Street has great wooden ride on toys - big price tags though - but would last for years I would hope!

    Toys Club - Ap Lei Chau and Central have a good selection of 'quality' toys.
