This self-described “World’s Coolest Toy Store”, located around one hour north of Pittsburg, definitely has some worthy wow factors. For a start, the exterior is a “Space Portal” with a bit of an Imperial Star Destroyer vibe, custom-built by a number of different local businesses with many fascinating details.

Then there’s the annual month-long treasure hunt, during which time the store hides gift cards within a 15-mile radius of their location, providing clues on their Facebook page.

Oh, and the toys, yes they do have lots of those, with a slant towards the futuristic and the sciencey.
