HarajukuKiddyLand, used to be called Tokyo's Capitol of Cute in Harajuku. It is one of Tokyo's most fun, famous and popular toy stores sightseeing spots in Tokyo. Located along the Omotesando - the georgous harajuku boulevard - KiddyLand consists of six floors filled with all kinds of huge selection toys from electronic games, character goods to stuffed animals.

Many major toy brands and popular characters, including Disney, Barbie and Hello Kitty, Peanuts Gang, American Superhero are available here. In 2nd floor, you can find any Peanuts Item in Japan. Sometime, The shop use Peanuts for Season Campaign Character. For example was the Xmas campaign of 1996. Overall, KiddyLand is nirvana of toys, the must visited spot for the young and the young at heart.

KiddyLand is located at 6-1-9 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku. If you want to go there, you can take JR "YAMANOTE-LINE", and take off "Harajuku". And exit "Omotesando-Guchi"(Entrance of Omotesando). Crossing road and you can see Drugstore in the corner. Walking straight few minutes, and crossing Meiji Ave, and burger shop in corner. 1 - 3 minutes on foot, you can look up KiddyLand Building.

You do not need an excuse if you want to go in and buy yourself something plastic, silly and completely useless. In fact, it seems half the Japanese teenage population thoroughly recommends it. The merchandise is global, making it a great place to buy not only Doraemon and Sanrio products, but also anything from the Moomins to Spiderman. The items here priced from a dollar to several hundreds of dollars.

There are rumors that some celebrities from foreign countries also visit there often. RelaKuma is the most popular character in KiddyLand. The store is usually so crowded with teenagers that it's impossible to get in the front door. If you are a person who doesn't like crowds, I wont recommend you to go there. It also has a large selection of gag gifts, including temporary tattoos and who knows what else. KiddyLand is open daily 10am to 8pm; closed the third Tuesday of some months.
