This little place is in the adventure city parking lot area. There are a few stores in this area mostly for collectables like car, plane, trains and sports. They do have a few other cake shops in back. The whole thing doesn't take too much time to go through but its worth the trip. It is a one of a... 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.

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 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!
