Unlike secondhand toys, secondhand fruit is useless thanks to an overabundance of juggle wounds. Enjoy seasoned goodies made to withstand the test of clowns with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of toys and collectibles at Big Fun Toy Store’s two locations: on Coventry Road in Cleveland Heights or on Clifton Boulevard in Cleveland. The venerable toy emporium buys old toys to stock its colorful shops with retro knick-knacks and classic collectibles, ranging from peace-sign sunglasses to mini armies of muscled soldiers. Harness the power of plastic future telling with a magic 8 ball ($11), or dust off your neocortex with a Rubik's cube ($15), wrestling rowdy squares into straight lines at the end of brain recess. Prepare yourself to get lost in the playground of nostalgia by first taking a photo tour of the dizzying array of kitschy wares.
- The goofy nostalgia at this jam-packed vintage toy bazaar is infectious. Whether you're in search of a gag gift like Chinese finger traps or a device that catapults plastic nuns, or you're a serious collector on the hunt for vintage Transformers toys or Pee Wee Herman trading cards, Big Fun's got it all. – Jeff Ruby, Playboy
