Tom’s Toys

Best Toy Stores, June 2007

You can’t judge a toy store by its facade. Tom’s Toys, in the heart of 90210, doesn’t look like much from the street. Inside, however, the place—including a huge back room—is bursting with merchandise that is well organized and competitively priced, from a knockout selection of Bruder trucks, board games, and Thomas the Tank Engine paraphernalia to pocket-size Schleich Smurfs to handsome plastic Breyer horses. A few pricey items—like a $399 black pedal airplane by American Retro—have us wishing we were three again. Also at 2281 Honolulu Ave., Montrose, 818-249-2178.
