Wonko's Toys and Games is truly one of Austin's gems. I've stopped by a handful of times and have always received the best service around. Don't expect to be bum-rushed as soon as you walk in the door (a practice I truly despise), but if you have any questions or special requests, they are always more than happy to help out. I have even called up there a couple of times with questions about something-or-another I was looking around for, and they were able to help me out immediately. I wouldn't consider myself an avid collector, but my girlfriend and I are pretty heavily into sci-fi, and Wonko's has *tons* of figurines that I haven't seen elsewhere (Dr. Who and Firefly come to mind).

This review wouldn't be complete without mentioning the incredible newsletter that these folks put out. It is opt-in on a clipboard at the counter, and it is the only newsletter that I truly enjoy seeing poke it's head into my inbox. It always starts off with a couple pages of serialized fiction reminiscent of the late Douglas Adams. This is then followed by all the new products to hit the store since last "episode". Finally, it has a schedule of all upcoming gaming events held up at the shop. I don't know what all games are played up there, as I have only really gotten into D&D, and I haven't played that seriously for years. I assume however, that they will accommodate whatever people want to get together and play.

If your inner child is in the mood for wandering around the most magical isles in town - Wonko's is the place to go.

Message from Wonko's Toys And Games

Wonko's Toys and Games has a threefold plan for world domination. The bulk of that plan involves equal parts bikini wax, thumbtacks, and cranberry sauce, but like so many other fiendish plots, it is the secret ingredient that makes it walk down the sidewalk in a white polyester leisure suit whistling Dixie. Our secret ingredient is high quality collectible toys and games, so stick that in your molecularizer and, wellâ?¦molecularize it.



All of the products that we sell are implanted with space age polymers and technology that will enable them to rise up at our bidding and subdue all who oppose us. It is for this reason that we highly recommend that you purchase all of your toys and games from Wonko's because there is nothing quite so debasing as getting your head handed to you by Tube Top Peter.



Once we have cemented our hold on the planet, we will set up a system of governance based on what we affectionately call the SMORES system. Rather than a flashy acronym, the SMORES system depends on copious amounts of graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate. We are confident that this system will be more responsive to the needs of citizens than any system previously known to man, with the exception of the "Light Everyone Who Opposes You On Fire" system, which remains without peer.



Please help us to further our aims by buying as many of the items you find here as possible, and maybe we'll make you Minister of Shiny Things and Such upon our inevitable ascension.



Thank you and have a nice day.
