Toy markets in CDMX

There are plenty of places in the city to find toys; however, at the time almost all are jammed with people and often with high prices. Despite this, there are still some places with flea markets, bazaars and expos where Melchor, Gaspar and Baltazar will be able to stock up without becoming poor.

We recommend: Close the Guadalupe-Reyes with piñatas in the Zócalo!
