Yide Toys and Gifts Wholesale Centre
Yide Lu International Toys and Gifts market is located at Yide Lu, close toOneLinkPlaza. It is mainly focused on toys, small gift items, stationery and accessories. It is a smaller version ofOneLinkPlaza, and usually a bit cheaper. I even have the feeling that sometimes the One Link plaza shops go here to buy in wholesale and then sell their products at a higher price in their own booth.
