VEGAN soft-serve is to die for - in rotating flavors like mint chocolate chip and pumpkin pie. Cute selection of bubble teas with chewy tapioca, cuter servers.

Nostalgic and funky! I love love love the location too.
I agree that some stuff might be over priced....but it's also hard to find....making it 100% okay by me!
I usually wander into Toy Joy for no reason and while there try and justify

A very nice toy store for adults (not porn stuff) and children alike. Lots of unique items you'll never find at a Toy's R Us. I would put it on any ones "must see" list when visting Austin.

I always love coming here and just perusing. They have cool buttons and bandaids. This is the place to go if you need a gift for either an adult or child.

Hmm if i tried to tell you what it is like, I would fail TOYJOY! ... but I'll try.
Its like an expolsion of the coolest toys and rubber snaked and weird japanese toys and elvis wigs and masks and little rubber buggs and neon glow in the dark whateveryouwant and it more than reasonably priced and so cool. When some one wrote the famous austin saying "KEEP AUSTIN WEIRD" they must have been in toyjoy

Ok honestly, the toys here are fantastic!! I love looking around and I went there with a friend and we looked around for hours and hours. There are just so many unique things in there. The only complaint that I have about that place is that is is WAY to cluttered and that things in there way just SO overpriced. I mean, a little penguin toy (plastic, totally 25 cents material) was literally $3.95. That is ridiculous. Everything in there is highly overpriced. The only reason why I go is that is there are just neat things to look at. Buying? Nah.

Toy Joy is a very unique store with plenty of gift ideas and wacky items. It is a bit overpriced for what you get, but you may not be able to find what they have anywhere else. Moo-Mixers, which automatically mix chocolate milk for you, for example, are hard to find.

There are so many fun toys here. Unfortunately, the store is so small that it's hard to try the toys. I would recommend this store for older children and adults. There aren't many infant or toddler toys. Otherwise, it's a really fun store and you probably won't be able to leave without buying something!

This is a fun store. They have tons of cheap little toys that make great stocking stuffers. I am a grown up and yet, I can still go here and find fun toys that I like. They have some fun games, puzzles, and experement type toys. If you collect plastic bugs or critters this is a great place to get them.

This place is one of the best toy stores I've ever been to. The cram tons of unique and fun toys into a small space right near the UT campus. These are not your run of the mill toys and you'd have to look hard to find similar items at a toys r us.

Toy Joy carries an impressive selection of nifty little toys, many of them educational or imported. It's always fun to browse and a great place to get stocking-stuffers or little pick-me-ups.

PROS: Always has fun stuff to check out.
CONS: The stock changes often so if you really want something buy it right away.

Toy Joy is an excellent place to shop for unique and interesting gifts for both the young and the old. Located on the drag, the store has an Austin eclectic feel. Prices vary from cheap to a little pricey. My kids love to go in there and pick out their own treat everytime we are in the area. The store specializes in novelty and educational toys and collector type items. I

Toy Joy is just at the beginning of the drag in Austin. They have some of the coolest toys for infants to adults. Great selection of rings, purses, balls, clocks, mobiles, pens, cars, infant toys, and crazy nick knacks. Check them out!

Toy Joy is the one place in Austin I can count on finding unusual toys and novelty items. It's a fun place to browse for gifts for hard to buy people. The people are friendly and really enjoy being there and helping you. They carry small simple toys (I remember playing with when I was kid) and it brings back some sweet memories. Far cry from the large chain toy stores! They even have them sitting out so you can play with them. This is not only a kids toy store, it's for adults too.

PROS: Simple toys, friendly staff
CONS: Very little parking

Toy joy is a local Austin business and has just about any toy that you would ever want and more. They carry unique toys from your youth as well as funky clocks, or cool stylish asian merchanise. They have stickers, and figurines and toys for children as well as adults. The people there are great and you are supporting a local business! Definitely a unique experience!! Never thought a toy store would be so much fun...

Do you work in a cubicle but watch Sponge bob squarepants on your days off? Then Toy Joy is a store for you. Really , this is a store for anyone who isn't completely humorless. They have a wide range of products including educational toys from europe, zany games, kitchy decor items, penny (not really) toys, fashion accessories, stationary, candy, puzzles, and furnishes...and that's just to start!!! When I was a freshman in college I bought this weird bubble bear from Germany... he freaked my friends out-- while 5.95 might seem pricey for bubbles, this bear provided 4 years of continous enjoyment. i wonder what happened to him....

Last time i was their i bought a hair clippy in the shape of a fairy, i teeny tiny (but very detailed) plastic baby and a fuzzy poodle. This place is typical austin-- bohemian, overwhelming, and completely wonderful.

Toy Joy is one of the few places in the Austin area that still has some old style charm. They have some really neat toys, some that you don't see much of anymore. Far from the Toys R' Us's and KB toy stores. Just a fun little store with tricks, jokes and plain ol' fun toys.

PROS: Still has old style charm

Toy Joy is one of the greatest small toy stores I have ever walked into. They have a great selection of rare and interesting toys all around the store. I have gone in multiple times in a rush trying to find a small gift for a friend, and found something that my friend just raved over. Even just a quick walk by will leave you delighted. The employees are extremely nice, and you can play with almost anything in the store.

PROS: Fun Selection, Odd Toys, Lots to play with

Toy Joy is one of the most unique shops I have ever been in. They offer a wide range of toys, from the usual plush animals to downright freaky toys that defy description.

One of my family's favourite ways to spend a weekend night is to budget everyone $10 and see who can find the most bizarre item in the allotted price range OR who can buy the most for their money. We have discovered that $10 goes a very long way in this eccentric little shop! One of the best things about Toy Joy is the is the late-night hours...they close at midnight on Friday and Saturday.

The staff at Toy Joy are very friendly and have an amazing knowledge of the overwhelming merchandise. They will help you make selections based on your price range, and quite cheerfully wrap your purchases free of charge.

Toy Joy is one of my favourite shops in the world. What an amazing testimonial it is to keeping Austin weird!

PROS: late hours, convenient location
CONS: lack of public toilet inside shop...they share one with Subway next door

A true Austin gem, Toy Joy is where the unapologetically weird and the hilariously fun meet. Parents can buy "normal" toys for their infants and children, while people reluctant to call themselves "adults" can browse the store for gag gifts, Hello Kitty merch, and funny objects that defy the ordinary.

PROS: Fun for children and adults, a wide range of prices, nice staff.
CONS: Spending too much time in this store will cause sensory overload!

This is one of the first places I was taken to years ago when I visited Austin... it's a must... there is always so much fun stuff... I think it's more for the older "kiddies"... they have everything from cute jewlery to decorative lamps... WOW!

I went to Toy Joy for the first time, just looking around but I found that "looking around" in Toy Joy means at least two hours of your time (and it's all enjoyable). The second time I went I was shopping for a gift but this also took about two hours, I wanted everything. I spend 15 minutes making sure I have seen every purse when I finally pick I make 5-10 more trips back to make sure there isn't something better.

This store is good for all ages my mother went in there amazed along with my grandmother. I have only been to Toy Joy two times but know it is the best you can find anything you want.

I rate this store over all a 10!
