We saw a short paragraph on this place in a shopping guide from our hotel room. We love gag gifts, silly items, and geeky stuff (think stupid.com or thinkgeek.com), so we had to check it out. It is hard to find items like that in an actual brick & mortar store. We were so glad we went. Our thirteen year old daughter said it was just about the best part of our trip to Chicago for her. We spent quite a bit of time just looking at everything. There is so much to take in even though it isn't a gigantic shop. The employees were terrific. We talked and joked a bunch, and they demonstrated products. The prices are amazing too! I look at items like they sell quite a bit online, and their prices were far better. If you like jokes, if you like gags, if you like the retro and quirky, you must visit Uncle Fun.
