How to get a product manufactured in China?

I have a product i have developed and i believe it is winner. I have sold some and need to mass produce it.
How do i find a manufacturer? I assume China is the best place. It is made from closed cell foam that needs to be custom formed. Also some metal bits. It is a sort of toy.
So, where do i start? Do i just go to some city in China with a product proto type and find a manufacturer?

If you go to alibaba.com, and search for "foam toy", you'll get over 107k items, and over 2k suppliers in your results. That will help you identify a variety of manufacturers you may be able to work with. Make your search terms even more specific if you can.
Then contact the suppliers that interest you, to open up dialogue to get quotes for what you have in mind.

How much capital are you planning to put into this first product of yours?
