toys and gifts

Hello good people. I heard customs is strict if one tries to bring in toys from USA- supposedly due not meeting safety regulations of the Ukraine. We would like to know if we wanted to bring toys or maybe a bicycle as a gift-would they be confiscated? Is it just better to buy toys or a bike upon our arrival in Kiev ? If so -- where would be the best place with most variety? Also car seats ? Are they mandatory and readily available to purchase there or should we bring one from US as a gift? It would be silly to spend the money on something and bring over only to have it taken away " just because...."

really, there is no need to bring such bulky items to Ukraine, you can easily purchase them here, car seats included. In fact, most of pushchairs nowadays convert easily into car seats. More so, you will definitely be required to pay an import tax on a bike, equal the price you paid for it at home, so do not bother. You can buy anything you wish in Kiev nowadays, foreign bikes and car seats included.
