Having been in the store on Sunset Blvd., I fell in love with Giant Robot almost immediately. I am inspired by the very hip niche products they carry. The atmosphere is fun, and the salespeople friendly.

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to check out the GR on Sawtelle. Wow, was I let down. We shopped around for about ten minutes. My friend very nicely asked if there was a restroom she could use. The sales person said no. My friend inquired if there was perhaps a public bathroom in a nearby establishment. The sales person, in a very unkind tone said that she didn't know, because she had never had to use one.

Sort of shocking, considering that all we did was very nicely ask about a bathroom. After about five minutes more of browsing the shop, I asked the same salesperson where the other store was located. "Isn't it on La Cienega?" I (incorrectly) inquired. She simply shook her head no and stared at me as if I were interrupting her soap opera.

Disappointed, we left immediately. I won't be going back.

Pros: Fun products, great place to shop for gifts.

Cons: Extremely unfriendly sales person.

Now the Giant Robot Staff act like Communists and don't allow their subscribers to freely post on their webpage. Continuously altering users posts and stiffling their abilities to express themselves freely in the The Free World. However if you want to post dirobed pictures and talk about sexually deviant behavior with teenagers they require no age limit to post or to subscribe to their Forums.

Spawned from the popular Asian-American pop culture 'zine of the same name, the Giant Robot store and it sister shop/gallery down the street, GR2 are always full of twisted toys, geeky guilty pleasures (Asian candy, vegan marshmallows), trendy art books, cutting edge comics and t-shirts. A trip to GR never fails to amuse and entice me to spend lots of money on gifts for myself or my friends.

If you like Japanese manga and cartoon figures, this store is definitely worth a visit. They sell a lot of toys, stuffed animals, T-shirts, as well as some graphic design books and magazines. You can find a lot of unique products in this store. The storekeepers are also very helpful and nice too.

Giant Robot has an eclectic selection of overpriced imported products. Since everything is imported, the premium attached is quite high, too high in my opinion. However, if you are a collector this is the store to go to. Fun to browse through the store just looking at the products, but the high prices deter any actual purchases.

On Sawtelle Boulevard south of Santa Monica, there's a tiny and somewhat unexpected Japanese neighborhood (by tiny I mean like a few blocks). Nestled in with the sushi restaurants and ramen houses is this little toy/gift/novelty shop perfect for people who like the brightly colored and somewhat nonsensical Kawai aesthetic. Have you finally run out of ideas for gifts? Stop by here. Toys whose names I can barely pronounce, T-Shirts, magazines, you name it.

Everytime I go into this store, I just think of how hip and cute their t-shirts are, or what a funny bunch of plushies they have on display. Honestly a very interesting store specializing in unique Japanese and Asian trends, but affordable at the same time. Recommended if you're ever around Sawtelle!

ted in West Lost Angeles on the Sawtelle strip, the store stocks various Asian and Asian American cultural wares, including t-shirts, books, magazines, and videos. Also provides a space for artistic expression. The store is in a trendy area, in proximity to other Asian-themed businesses, popular with the young and college crowd.

Great selection of Asian and mainly Japanese items in a distinct part of Los Angeles along Sawtelle Blvd. in Santa Monica. The Asian pop culture focus is the main emphasis of the variety of items on sale but also there are rare never before seen shirts,music, and books that you will not find anywhere else!!
