BIG FUN equals an amazing good time! – BIG FUN ROCKS! This place is great for bringing people from out of town - it's full of memories, art & of course amazingly fun toys!!! Prices are fair considering the amount of work they put into cleaning & piecing things together plus if you're cool - and Big Fun Nerd worthy - they usually cut you some slack. Nerds love to talk w/ nerds so check this store out, bring your toy skills and come have a good time! Oh yea...and keep your eyes open for Muscle Men...last count I had was 14.
Big Fun: Accurate, Knowledable, Fair Prices – Ignore the last person's overly critical review. Big Fun is hands-down the most fun one in Cleveland can have in terms of a shopping experience and toy collectors would do themselves an immense disservice by passing up a journey to the shop. No, Big Fun is not as cheap as eBay but what is? What you will find at Big Fun is the best selection of vintage toys in one of the very few remaining brick-and-mortar collectibles toys stores remaining in this country. From Star Wars, GI-Joe, Thundercats, He-Man, and Strawberry Shortcake to even obscure toy lines such as Crystar and Warlords, these folks know their business like nobody else. The people working there are frickin' encyclopedias on collectible toys and fun to chat with. There is also wiggle-room as far as prices are concerned with nearly every collectible in the store and I've been treated like nothing less than gold every time I've walked into the store. I challenge anyone to find any place with as comprehensive a selection of toys as Big Fun. No, they are not the cheapest but you will find are toys with the correct pieces in high-grade condition for honestly reasonable prices. Besides, with eBay shipping costs (and a bit of a mystery surrounding what you're really getting), Big Fun is a fun and safe way to shop for old toys.
Best Toy Store Ever – Like the name says-- shopping here is Big Fun. Looking is free. Prices for what you buy range from negligible to things I wish I could afford. Many small toys can be found here for less than a dollar. When hunting for a special gift I take special pleasure in being able to find here, not only contemporary playthings, but also toys that I played with as a child. Thanks to Big Fun I can share the experience of having these to treasure and play with my children. Many of my adult friends and family, being easily amused, have themselves had Big Fun with the presents I have bought for them here.
Big Crock is more like it! – I love how everyone goes on and on about how nice Big Fun is. Apparently these people are not vintage toy collectors. I am and I have enough toys in my room bought from ebay, flea markets, vintage toys stores from random around the state and I gotta say Big Fun is a big crock. At lot of the items in Big Fun cost more than they would if I bought them on ebay. The price for an incomplete figure from the vintage He-Man was well over 10 times what the figure is actually worth. It is apparent they know nothing about their vintage toys they have for sale. A common My Little Pony worth at most $5 is up for sale for $20? Come on get some knowledge about what you're selling Big Fun! Do some research on prices and make yourself a good vintage toy dealer like you could be!
My favorite store – Great place to find anyone a birthday gift!!! They even have an old photobooth. Anyone who has a sense of humor, loves 80s toys or wants to be amused will love Big Fun. And after you are done shopping at Big Fun i suggest checking out the resturants on coventry.
Best of the best toys and gifts from the past........... – Since they moved across the street in the new location......Big Fun has gotten more FUN and more Attractions. My partner & I were amazed with the classics and that the owner and her were on the right page re: 90 percent off the merchandise new or classic.
We can't wait to come back. Us out of townies, need to get out more!
It's like the family playroom of your dreams. – The Scene
The store sits on Coventry, long considered the heart of Cleveland's counterculture, from the hippie-era and onwards. Imagine piles of toys up to (and on) the ceiling--new, used and nostalgic. They buy and sell--but only as long as goods amply register on the "cool meter" of founder Steve Presser.
Expect movie, TV and cartoon character merchandise: Austin Powers, Yellow Submarine, Pez, G.I. Joe, Star Wars, Star Trek, Transformers, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Godzilla, Mr. T., Ren and Stimpy, Pee Wee Herman, Three Stooges and KISS. There are school lunchboxes, model kits, action figures, and more magnets than you can shake a refrigerator at. There's also old, weird board games and obscure movie, TV and cartoon tie-ins you thought you'd never see again ("M.A.S.K." anyone?). A permanent shrine of Elvis merchandise sits as a tribute.
Best Store Ever! – Big Fun: the name says it all. I could spend hours in this store!
