Hong Kong bus models for every budget

What does a young kid on holiday in Hong Kong and loaded up with red envelopes do? In the case of my son – spend the cash on pull-back action models of Hong Kong public transport!

Cheap and cheerful

The first range of pull-back action vehicles we found were at a newsstand outside the Star Ferry pier, but they seem to be everywhere, including a gift shop on Lamma Island.

Dirt cheap at around HK$28 per vehicle, their range of pull-back action vehicles include both types of Public Light Bus.

They are a product of Sun Hing Toys, and are approximately 1:87 scale.

And a little more expensive

At around HK$60 and up, we found these more detailed toys at 80M Bus Model Shop, who have multiple stores around Hong Kong.
