Sparky's is the place to go for vintage toys, candy, and novelty items. If you're in the stocking stuffer market - or maybe gift bags for kid's birthday parties - this is the place to go. They've even got some of the crazier candy from when we were kids, like candy cigarettes.

Located on Universal Citywalk this is a retro fun store. They offer quirky gifts and pez dispensers! Their display window is fun and you will spend some time looking at the wide variety of pez dispensers for your favorite icon.
Also buy candy by the pound, toys from yesteryear and bottled soda from a machine.
A must see while on citywalk.

Sparkies is Fantastic.... If you are in your 50's like I am, you walk into there and think that you are walking into a toy/candy store from when you were a kid.... The have reproductions of everything from Barbies, Tops, Wind-up Toys, Pez Machines, balsa wood airplane kits, the list goes on and on. The candies they sell are from back then too, The big boxes of juicy fruit, neopolitan taffy, candy cigarettes, even Cinnamon Tooth Picks.... It is right in the middle of City Walk at Universal Studios. If you have not been to city walk, night time is the best, it lights up like you were on a real Hollywood set. This place is a must for out of town guests.

PROS: Nastalgia at its best
CONS:

Sparky's is a fun retro toy store located in Universal Citywalk. It's a refeshing change of pace from shopping for toys at places like Toys R Us or Walmart. Sparky's features unique items you can't find elsewhere, many of which have a 1950s flavor. Kids probably can't appreciate a lot of these toys, but your Baby Boomer friends will be swooning with nostalgia. Their prices are somewhat high, but this could be a cool place to shop for gifts. It's also a fun place to look around, whether or not you end up buying anything.
