Best Local Toy Store

G. Willikers Toy Merchant

Readers' Picks

Ever fear that the machines are taking over the world? If they were, they would probably start by indoctrinating the children--get 'em when they're young. Just look into the glazed-over eyes of a child who has been staring at a screen for hours and you'll start to question if the takeover has already started. Maybe that's why having a store like Hyde Park's G. Willikers is so refreshing. Classic toys that depend more on imagination than upgrades have struck a chord with Treasure Valley residents, who have fully embraced the relatively new toy shop. Don't think of it as spoiling a child, but doing your part to save the world. 1508 N. 13th St., Boise, 208-367-0020,
