What I appreciated:
Great prices, traditional Chinese clothing and toys
DongFangShenBi offers toys for kids. I found magic from two of them.
One is called ¡°magical torch¡±. It is a version of the old Kaleidoscope which has become something of a rarity in toy stores nowadays. When you view an object through the cylinder, the object is turned into hundreds of objects. Optics does the trick, as there are lots of pieces of glass in the cylinder. Most of the magic torches are priced around RMB 15. An inexpensive toy to bring back to your child for hours of entertainment.
The other magic toy of note in the shop is color pens. Instead of drawing pictures, kids can blow pictures with these magic markers. Some pen sets come with a transparent pen which changes the other pen colors. Prices for a set range from RMB 39 to RMB 123.
