This is a window display of a wholesale toystore at Petaling Street, Kuala Lumpur Chinatown. This store sells many varieties of children soft toys, plastic, wooden as well as electrical toys and game sets. Many of these items are made in China and some from Taiwan and Korea. Some shops sell direct to the public while others are wholesalers who prefer to sell in bulk at dirt cheap prices.
There are also quite a number of costume jewellery, apparel, fashion accessories, handbags, bling-bling, premium gifts, handicrafts and souvenir shops here. At the air-conditioned shops, the prices are usually fixed and no bargaining is needed. Prices vary depending on the quantity purchased. For example, at a wholesaler, you can buy 30 pairs of a certain type of earrings at RM 0.99 each. That's the minimum quantity. Maybe you can buy this as souvenirs for all your friends and collegues back home. The retail price for the same type of earrings is around RM 4.00 per pair. At the small stalls along the road side, you will need an eye for detail and great bargaining as well as negotiation skills.
To find these shops, you need to walk outside the main pedestrian mall and further up the street. You can even find shops selling party paraphernalia, Halloween, Christmas and New Year decorations. The supplies change according to the seasons. Some of the shops are opened only during the day and they close after office hours.
Looking at the picture above, can you what is being reflected from the glass window.
