Online toy ordering, delivered in Taiwan, order from abroad ?

Welcome to Forumosa's corner for moms and dads to talk about the issues involved in parenting in Taiwan.

Online toy ordering, delivered in Taiwan, order from abroad ?

Postby pgdaddy1 » 30 Apr 2016, 17:47

For the last few years I have been using the ToysRUs TW online website to order birthday presents to be delivered to my boy in Taiwan. However it seems that this is no longer possible, an account is required with a Taiwan ID number. I have tried using other sites like ToysRUs Hong Kong but they don´t deliver internationally.

Anyone know of an local online toy delivery service that allows a purchase from abroad ? If it were in English it could be better but if in Chinese I could also manage it with a little help from this end.

If it's Lego, there is a VERY good platform here: http://www.bricklink.com/searchAdvanced.asp. You can choose sellers within Taiwan, within Asia, or even wider. Recommended.

Thanks Dragonbones ! I ordered some Lego through one of the shops in there. Paid by Paypal so very easy. I´ll need to think of some other solutions though because I can´t buy Lego every time ....

Cheers! I talked with Dragonbabe about this today. Ruten is out, as they require a Taiwan ID, but she says that PCHomeShopping has a toy section and does not require a Taiwan ID. Check it out.
