Their journey began in 1984 within an old arcade in downtown Cleveland. They were nestled in a tiny storefront there. In 1988 they opened their own doors in Rocky River where they still reside now. This business is supported by friends and family over the many years and have had the honor to enjoy multi-generational relationships with many of these families. Through this continuous and strong support, Rocky River will always have a “real” toy store.
