BIG FUN ROCKS! This place is great for bringing people from out of town - it's full of memories, art & of course amazingly fun toys!!! Prices are fair considering the amount of work they put into cleaning & piecing things together plus if you're cool - and Big Fun Nerd worthy - they usually cut you some slack. Nerds love to talk w/ nerds so check this store out, bring your toy skills and come have a good time! Oh yea...and keep your eyes open for Muscle Men...last count I had was 14.

Pros: Random selection. Also near lots of other stores & places to eat.

Cons: Can get super crowded. More aisle space in places would be nice.

Is Wal-Mart better than Mom & Pop shops because they are often cheaper?

While Big Fun might not have the cheapest prices around, what they make up for is accuracy in all other ways. Flea markets, garage sales, and even Ebay are great but at Big Fun you know you'll get a high-grade item with the correct pieces. I've bought so much junk from a variety of sources but these folks really, really know their stuff! The staff there are walking encyclopedias on toys and I'm always thrilled to "talk shop" with the folks there not just about big toy lines such as Star Wars and Transformers but also smaller lines such as Warlords and Chystar.

Ignore the last person's overly critical review. Big Fun is hands-down the most fun one in Cleveland can have in terms of a shopping experience and toy collectors would do themselves an immense disservice by passing up a journey to the shop. No, Big Fun is not as cheap as eBay but what is? What you will find at Big Fun is the best selection of vintage toys in one of the very few remaining brick-and-mortar collectibles toys stores remaining in this country. From Star Wars, GI-Joe, Thundercats, He-Man, and Strawberry Shortcake to even obscure toy lines such as Crystar and Warlords, these folks know their business like nobody else. The people working there are frickin' encyclopedias on collectible toys and fun to chat with. There is also wiggle-room as far as prices are concerned with nearly every collectible in the store and I've been treated like nothing less than gold every time I've walked into the store. I challenge anyone to find any place with as comprehensive a selection of toys as Big Fun. No, they are not the cheapest but you will find are toys with the correct pieces in high-grade condition for honestly reasonable prices. Besides, with eBay shipping costs (and a bit of a mystery surrounding what you're really getting), Big Fun is a fun and safe way to shop for old toys.

Pros: HUGE Selection of Vintage Toys

Cons: Somewhat Far From a Good Highway Exit

Like the name says-- shopping here is Big Fun. Looking is free. Prices for what you buy range from negligible to things I wish I could afford. Many small toys can be found here for less than a dollar. When hunting for a special gift I take special pleasure in being able to find here, not only contemporary playthings, but also toys that I played with as a child. Thanks to Big Fun I can share the experience of having these to treasure and play with my children. Many of my adult friends and family, being easily amused, have themselves had Big Fun with the presents I have bought for them here.

Pros: Unique source of fondly remembered toys

Cons: Oh, 'ek! No Penfold!

And I say this coming from a toy collector's perspective. Their prices are terrible! I have scoured all over from Flea Markets, Ebay and numerous toy stores around the state. Big Fun is the last place I would ever go to. My Little Ponies worth about $5 selling for $20?! A He-Man figure with nothing to it and and terrible shape for $45? Get with the program Big Fun! There is so much potential with your store and yet your prices are not worth it. Do some research and learn about what you're trying to sell because apparently you know nothing!

I love how everyone goes on and on about how nice Big Fun is. Apparently these people are not vintage toy collectors. I am and I have enough toys in my room bought from ebay, flea markets, vintage toys stores from random around the state and I gotta say Big Fun is a big crock. At lot of the items in Big Fun cost more than they would if I bought them on ebay. The price for an incomplete figure from the vintage He-Man was well over 10 times what the figure is actually worth. It is apparent they know nothing about their vintage toys they have for sale. A common My Little Pony worth at most $5 is up for sale for $20? Come on get some knowledge about what you're selling Big Fun! Do some research on prices and make yourself a good vintage toy dealer like you could be!

Great place to find anyone a birthday gift!!! They even have an old photobooth. Anyone who has a sense of humor, loves 80s toys or wants to be amused will love Big Fun. And after you are done shopping at Big Fun i suggest checking out the resturants on coventry.

Since they moved across the street in the new location......Big Fun has gotten more FUN and more Attractions. My partner & I were amazed with the classics and that the owner and her were on the right page re: 90 percent off the merchandise new or classic.

We can't wait to come back. Us out of townies, need to get out more!

You wouldn't believe how many knick knacks adorn Big Fun. They have everything a collector may want: lunch boxes, action figures, comic books, sports cards, etc. If you want to start a collection or add to an existing one, this is the place to go. They get new things in all the time so it's worth checking back. Prices range from low to high for the more rare or exquisite collectables.

Set aside some time for your first visit to Big Fun. There is so much merchandise packed into this small shop, that you could spend all afternoon discovering everything. From vintage memorabilia to kitschy refrigerator magnets, it's chock full of stuff you didn't know you needed. It's awesome for fun gifts and stocking stuffers.

Big Fun lives up to its name! It's like a giant toy store, but the neat part is that it's all things from the 50s, 60s, 70s & 80s -
toys from when YOU were little! It's a blast & you won't believe some of the memories that will come flooding back seeing things you've forgotten about since you were just 7 years old!
A MUST VISIT store!

PROS: stuff you just WON"T find any where else!
CONS: none

If you collect anything from by gone times then this is the place to check out. The real collectibles are under glass, but the reproductions are out where you can search throught them....just like when you were younger and mom took you to the dime store. Lots of things to choose from...lunch boxes, star wars, barbie dolls, gi joe. Remember the toys from the cereal boxes, the dish towels from the detergent companies.....take a trip down memory lane with a visit to Big Fun. Price from reasonable to thousands.

I dare anyone to find a place with more fun packed per square foot than Big Fun in Coventry. I guess the definition of fun is determined by your choice of popular culture and Big Fun has lots of choices: Lunch boxes, blow-up advertising toys, Barbie dolls, and Star Wars toys. Find the toy that fascintated you when you found it in the cereal box when you were just a kid, or buy a reproduction of classic toys. The new stuff is displayed just like an old Five and Dime Store, in bins that you can rummage through. The classic collectibles are under glasa and behind the counters. Well worth a stop for any toy lover! Prices range from under a buck to thousands of bucks.

PROS: Selection! Big Fun!
CONS: Parking in Conventry can be a pain.
