Big Fun

Time passes slowly in this ever-popular toy store, which is among the few surviving retail shops in Cleveland Heights' famed Coventry district. Here, you can reconnect with all of your old friends: G.I. Joe, Luke Skywalker, Mr. T, Captain Kirk, Rambo, the Hulkster - they're all here, and they've missed you so. Not big on action figures? Shoot your eye out with a Red Rider BB gun, or test a brand-new Slinky. The readin' type? Dive into a Mad magazine or a Swamp Thing comic. A big eater?
