Going to Harajuku and searching for toys? Prepare your pockets because you might go crazy over all the original merchandise from different makers / companies!
As a frequent Harajuku visitor (and a tour guide of my friends going to Tokyo for almost four years), I would always recommend KIDDY LAND store along Omotesando.
Harajuku’s Landmark Toy Paradise, the KIDDY LAND flagship store, is not just for kids.
As they promise, “KIDDY LAND magic memory,” both kids and grownups feel right at home here because they will find things that are for their kids’ as well as for themselves. The goods you will find here are constantly changing and the number of items growing with each visit. From character items to special, limited items, you will be able to find here and there is something for everyone.
