“Think fun! Chew well!”

Toy Joy is a true Austin original. They are an independent toy store that was established in 1987 to supply locals with meaningful toys. Toy Joy soon became famous for its revolving stock of strange knick-knacks and exotic goods. The concept grew, along with the city, and soon Toy Joy became one of the largest and most popular toy retailers in the US. People were traveling from all around the globe to experience a less typical children's retailer.  In 2008, Toy Joy found new ownership with a couple who have dedicated their life to toys, and the pursuit of fun! The store expanded into the space next door, adding a “Tokyo Toy Joy” for a more complete tour of light-hearted design and nostalgic playthings. Toy Joy is a safe-for-all-ages toy store. In fact, all the items are chosen to be “safe for an eight year old”, even though some of the items may be as fascinating for adults! Everyone should have fun at Toy Joy! Gift wrap is free, and truly amazing! Toy Joy provides free gift wrapping services to all patient customers. Please keep in mind that this is a very popular service on weekends and holidays, if you are on your way to a party, allow extra time!

A quaint little toy shop filled with anime and comic book paraphernalia, plushes, puzzles, and comic books/manga. It's a bit cramped inside. Didn't buy anything but it's a nice place to browse. Read more

Every time I'm downtown, I make a stop at Toy Joy. There are a lot of cute toys and knickknacks that are weird, quirky, and interesting. I feel that I can describe it as a treasure chest for toys! Read more
