2009 Taipei Toy Festival

The 6th annual Taipei Toy Festival kicked off today and will be on until Sunday, July. 12. This year, it’s being held at Huashan1914 Creative Park (No. 1, Sec. 1, Bade Rd., Taipei City, East 2 Room.)

The show’s organizer, Monster Taipei, has arranged several special events and activities for the next four days. Toy enthusiasts can expect free daily toy giveaways, auctions for rare limited edition toys, and a chance to meet their favorite artists and exhibitors.

These shows are really cool, especially if you like to collect toys from 7-Eleven or Family Mart. Several prominent Taipei artists got their start in the business by designing these figurines.

Closest MRT stations: Chunghsiao Hsinshen exit no.1 or Shandao Temple exit no.6
