Toys/Gifts Wholesale Centre previously at Blanco Court

Postby auntiexxx » Mon Sep 23, 2013 9:34 am

There used to be a number of shops selling toys/gifts at wholesale prices at the fromer Blanco Court but of course, they have all moved away. Does anyone know where to find toys/gifts at wholesale prices now? Going on a Mission Trip in December and intend to bring some toys/gifts for the village children.

Thanks.

Thanks.

Where are you going? Do you have some contacts there? They may be able to help you get toys and gifts much cheaper in the destination country and save the transport costs. Village kids won't be able to get hold of or afford stuff sold in cities, so even if the toys are from the same country, they are likely to be novelties to the village kids.

Thanks slmkhoo. I intend to get a variety of things and pack them into little party-like packs, much like those goodie bags that our kids get at birthday parties, so getting them here and packing them makes more sense.

What kind are you looking for? Qoo10 has some, but not sure if they are the kind you are looking for?
On Qoo10, 1 shop selling pencil cases with stationary for less than $2 each, another shop selling traditional toys; i.e. marbles, etc

Thanks shinri, but I am not looking for stationery. Definitely not marbles too. Too dangerous for small kids.

Hi auntiexxx,

Would you consider assorted and unopen pack of McDonald toys? You can place it into goodie bags?

Let me know.

Cheers,
