I love this place, you can find a bunch of different anime and manga stuff here, for a good price.

But i'm curious if they have a website

Okay, first of all, Andrew down there, it's generally your opinion if you don't think it's worth going there more than three times. Honestly, I went there three times in ONE day, and continued to buy something each visit that day.

Yes, everyone is entitled to there own opinion, but I'm just saying.

The owner, the lady, is actually quite nice. She gave me free candy, because she thought me and my friends were good customers. I go there quite often now.

My advice, I don't recommend buying the manga there if it happens to be available at Book Off in Westminster Mall. But, the Book Off in this mall might not sell every single volume if you're looking for Naruto or whatever. The books are also used in Book Off, but the staff tries there best to refurbish the books before reselling, and they come out looking almost as new.

Small Wonders has a larger collection of manga, I believe. But their prices differ. They might sell theirs for about ten dollars, but Book Off sells theirs for about six to two dollars, depending on the sales shelf.

I think Small Wonders is a real wonder in Orange County since you don't usually find anime stores like these around the area, unless you try the Asian Garden Mall once and a while.

The plushies in the store are also rare, and difficult to find unless you order them from off line which could cost up to about thirty dollars, plus the shipping.

I'm sorry if no one finds this review helpful, just stating my opinion.

Small wonder is a good store to shop for Anime and gifts. The owner is nice and really helpful. Since Small Wonders is the shop near my school, its a really nice store even though its small. And the price is very good and very manageable.

I don't understand why one person places a warning for this store. The media sold here can be found at any anime store across the country, the media are legit as can be. If anyone cares enough to look closer at the merchandise they would know the difference between bootleg.

This anime store is probably one of the largest remaining venues in Orange County, since Anime Nuts closed down. Not many anime stores would post works done by other Otaku.

Clarification on the manga being sold, they're all new and not used unless you consider 'used' being previewed by people.

The store is family owned, can't be expected to have all the high tech security measures that a department store would have to detect thieves.

There is always something for everyone to find at Small Wonders, even for non-Otaku out there.

Its not a bad place but expensive and small. The shop keeper looks pretty mean like she will stare at you like u were about to steal some thing. the dolls are cool and cant be found in other stores. I only recommend you only buy dolls,shirts,books everything else i wouldnt trust.

It's not too bad a place. Yes, it's small and some of the items are kind of expensive, but there are a lot of things that you can't find in other stores ie anime/game action figure, wall scrolls, Japanese CDs. In short this place is more of a specialty store to me. I still like it though.

Went in there at the request of my fiance to look for a Pikachu doll, and noticed right near the entrance a bunch of anime DVDs and anime/game music CDs.

Most of the DVDs on display were taiwanese bootlegs, and literally ALL of the CDs I saw were bootlegs as well.

Avoid this place like the plague unless you want pirated anime.

For an anime fan such as myself, this is a great place to pick up related merchandise. Every time I go in there, I end up spending around $100 because I find so much good stuff there, I can't help myself.

I went to Small Wonders a few years ago looking for a birthday present. The first thing I noticed was it was pretty small. The selections arent that big at all. They barely have any nice gifts. The worst part is the prices are expensive. After a couple minutes looking, I could not find one thing that I could buy for a friends birthday. I would recommend everyone to keep looking; dont waste your time going here.
