Editorial Review of Uncle Fun

If only every crazy uncle was this fun. For the past two decades, Uncle Fun has redefined the idea of the typical toy store. The result? This is no Toys "R" Us. About ten times cooler than your traditional Mattel-filled shop, Uncle Fun stocks goods for kids, adults and adult-kid hybrids, like Robin Williams.

With a treasure chest-vibe, expect to dig through tiny drawers and endless stacks for toys ranging from stink bombs and Senor Misterioso dolls to Pee Wee Herman harmonicas and Simpsons paraphernalia. If you’re looking for a kitschy birthday card or postcard, one trip to Uncle Fun will have you eschew Hallmark stores for life.
