Another one of my dorky loves is looking at cheap toys… I can’t help myself.  I like to look at them in the dollar stores, that random shelf they would always have at the grocery, and the party favor aisles… I make a point just to swing by and see them sometimes.  I’m not sure why I like looking at them, maybe because since they are SO cheap you never know what the heck you will find.  Sometimes I see super ugly things, sometimes bootlegs, sometimes just the package art has been ripped off, and sometimes I see something that is kinda cute!

Anyway, now that I live in Seoul I have a whole new assortment of cheap Korean toys to look at~ So this will me my post to share them! I spot these at convenience stores, Daiso, 문방구 locations, or plain old toy shops!

I will update this post as I spot more! Feel free to send in your own pics from Korea as well!

So what do you think of the cheap-o Korean toys? Do you like to look at these things as well when you are in a store? Have any old favorites you remember? Comment below!
