More than a mere toy store, Toy Joy is a wall-to-wall shrine to giant rubber bugs, wind-up Nun-zillas, lava lamps, Day-Glo(TM), and astronaut everything. There are old standbys, too, like Pez(TM), Frisbee (TM), Sanrio(TM), Beanie Babies(TM), and Curious George(TM) (and we don't mean that monkey in the White House). Speaking of simians, you'll be measuring couch space for their gigantic sock monkey; we know we did. All this, and Toy Joy is easy on the budget, too, with something in every dollar range, including the elusive "less than 99 cents." Bologna Bubblegum, anyone?
