Kidding Around Reviews
We got this store recommended by several people, but we did not find any special toys that we haven’t seen somewhere else, but the worse about this store was the bad service we got there, very unengag... more »
Após o fechamento da FAO, próxima do Central Park e das lojas da ToyRUs, inclusive em Jersey Garden, ficou difícil comprar brinquedos em NYC. O problema é que encomenda de neto tem que ser atendida. "... more »After the closing of the FAO, close to Central Park and of the ToyRUs stores, including Jersey Garden, it was difficult to buy toys in NYC. The problem is that neto order has to be served. "Contract has to be fulfilled". Ours was to take the "BEYBLADE", in the trunk. With the closing of the stores mentioned above, we were looking for in the toy sections of department stores, which are limited. We couldn't find, because it is not a common toy. Consult the Google which indicated the store "KIDDING AROUND", we didn't know. Is inside the GRAND CENTRAL TERMINAL, which is a show. We bought this toy, we know the Terminal, we visited other shops, including one from Apple and we had lunch there. Nice program
I enjoy looking at action figures and Kidding Around has a great selection of them. There are lots of figures that you won't find in American stores like Godzilla inspired figures or robots. There's a backroom with the pricier, rarer items. Looking at all the Star Wars figures and others 80s stuff was like a trip down nostalgia lane. A fun place to browse.
Thank The Good Lord for another day. I haven't been here, reading some of the reviews this place sound decent but I need to check this place out so God Willing. When I got here the place was close and only took a few pictures.
