TIE: Terra Toys; Toy Joy

Terra Toys and Toy Joy have their subtle differences. Terra is more classic and cerebral, where Toy Joy is nearly seizure-inducing in its modern, DayGlo craziness, yet both of these wonder emporiums strike the balance between fads and infinitely fun, affordable and uppity, new school and Playskool, pink and blue. Though people get old and gross, these stores' youthful spirits will endure, and they’ll still have what we like and welcome us.
