雜貨店 (zha huo dian). They sell your standard low-cost kitchen wares, household products, etc. They also sometimes have toys.
Quick backstory about why I was there. I was on my way to an old neighborhood, and I had a feeling a neighbor might invite me in for coffee. Well, when you go into someone's house, you remove your shoes first. That morning, I had discovered that one of my socks, bought years ago in Korea, had developed a hole in a toe. Not a good look. As a bit of preventive defense, I went searching for a new pair of socks. Lucky thing I found some, since I did wind up visiting with the neighbors. Embarrassment prevented!
Back to the shop. Here's a look at some of the colorful KO toys they had:
|We'll start with an oddly named "Deformation" toy. This Transformers KO has even reappropriated the packaging. Thorough job!|
|And where would we be without LEPIN, one of the many LEGO knockoff brands? Instead of Ninjago, this is the renamed Ninjag line. Maybe they ran out of letters.|
|The girls have toys to choose from, too.|
|This "Star War" gun may be a sort of Nerf/Transformers KO? Nerformers?|
