Toykino Gallery - Toy Figures!

In exploring Samcheong-dong, we stopped off at the compact Toykino Gallery found along Samcheongdong-gil. Its a small place but packed with several rooms full of cabinets displaying all manner of toy figurines.

Linh and I paid 3,000 KRW each (£1.45) to check out the displays in detail. I say detail, because when we first walked in, being a small place, we could see all the rooms on display anyway.

Each room was themed in some way and these ranged from military, sports, Star Wars, Peanuts, Smurfs, The Simpsons, Popeye and movie tie-ins.

There were a few life-sized figures, and Linh was happy to pose with Superman and Batman.
