Visitors of all ages can find something to entertain them at My Hobby Place & Toys, where the inventory ranges from toys that foster education and development to hobby supplies for older children and adults. The store stocks products from more than 40 name brands, including Lego Star Wars and dinosaur sets and the Fisher-Price corn-popper push toy that kids must demonstrate mastery of to graduate kindergarten. Baby Einstein's Discovery cards teach toddlers to recognize animals and master basic vocabulary, and art supplies by Crayola and Melissa & Doug stimulate artistic impulses more easily than séances with Michelangelo. The Celestron travel telescope kit fits a telescope, a tripod, and two different eyepieces into a backpack-style carrying case, and the Model T rock tumbler polishes up to 3 pounds of stones using a 115-volt motor and four grades of polishing abrasives. Grownups can play trivia and humor-based board games or wrestle with jigsaw puzzles of Elvis and Marilyn Monroe.
