Not much left open - still have great memories

Dropped by there a few months ago, looking for a specific toy for my grandson. Hadn't been there for at least 30 years and was surprised to see it still open for business. Many... read more

I love to collect dolls and see all the different dolls and toys out there. We always find just the right item for our grandchildren and they are never disappointed. I guess the only thing to dislike would be if you're looking for something that's not a doll or toy.

nothing left tyo this old time so cal attraction..a few crumby stores offering shlock...over priced and way to boring for today's clientele...the little amusement park is kind of cute and a nice throwback to the 60s..

Many of the shops have closed but the ones that remain are very quaint and the folks working there are veritable experts in their wares. Unfortunately, I... More

I used to love Hobby City, now most of the stores are closed. It is a shame,they used to have some of the most unique craft stores.

I would not recommend spending any time here it's run down and a total dump! It's over priced and most of the shops have gone out of business! Do not waist your time go somewhere fun like Disneyland or head to the beach!

Hobby city is on Beach Blvd. between Ball Rd.and Cerritos in Anaheim. We have gone there for many items pertaining to our hobbies. Hope it stays, at one time they were to tear it down. So far it is still in business

Where can you find such a great collection ? Well, sometimes at an antique doll sale you can find a few dolls but nothing like the collection here at the museum. Every grandmother owes iher daughter, granddaughter , great granddaughter a visit to this museum. How about the toys for her sons and grandsons ? an opportunity to share stories... More

I love the Bear Tree and The Hobby Store . I had visited several years ago when they had the Cabbage Patch Doll Hospital and that was great. They no longer have that here. But it is still a fun place to visit.
