Seasonal Toys and Decorations 

The best time to visit is near one of the holiday seasons, when the toy market is swamped with:

  • seasonal and festival decorations
  • dress up costumes
  • good luck charms, and
  • party goods. 

In the lead up to Chinese New Year, the market stalls start selling decorations that can help invoke good Feng Shui for prosperity, wealth and good luck.
