I couldn't even find what I wanted because there was **** laying everywhere, no prices on half the items. It really did look like it could be featured on an episode of hoarders! I literally had to step over things awkwardly in order to navigate through the make-shift aisles. If you come here, make sure to watch your step so you don't trip! The carpet in this place was absolutely filthy. It was like green and all mushed down from years of abuse and just STUNK. It was probably as old as the building which had to be at LEAST 50 years old and apparently the first and last time they stocked their inventory. Some boxes were yellow like old newspapers (and you can't tell me the balsa has been kept in the correct humidity all those years!) and I could probably walk into the store 50 times and find something new! As far as the dog everyone else has mentioned, he was no problem, at all he was very friendly (I love dogs so he didn't bother me). What did bother me was that it smelled like the dog was probably going to the bathroom in there or something. I felt like I had to take a shower after leaving the place, NO JOKE! I suppose if you really needed a rare part for something from like 1974 I would recommend them because it has probably been in their inventory since then otherwise I really wouldn't waste your time. I WANTED TO SPEND MONEY but could not get the right answers. I'm surprised the building hasn't been condemned! Running a business that way is NOT RIGHT! I will have to find somewhere else to spend my money and I would advise you to use your better judgment and do the same. But if you're like me and you read the bad reviews and went anyway to see for yourself just know you've been warned.

I am into Radio Control boats and Happy Hobby has the best selection electric and gas. All kinds of Boats, hardware, props, struts, rudders shafts in stock
Happy Hobby has the best hobby stores. Stores you can walk in to and they stock everything. None of the other Hobby Shops in town can compare. The owners work very hard for your business and the online stores do nothing for you. If you only use your local store to look at stuff and not buy from them they will not be very receptive the next time you come in. I consider Happy Hobby to be my toy box full of toys for me. I know that when I get something from them and something goes wrong with it that they will support it, with the parts they stock and the experience that the family and employees have.
I am a customer of Happy Hobby and I have been very happy with the customer service I have received

Don??t give up on us hobbyists

You have the best hobby shops in WI

I have been a customer of yours for many years and I know first hand what you and your family have done for the Hobby. I also have learned allot from you. You have helped me from day one. I first met Scott at A flyin in Port Washington. The Astrowings flying club. Scott demonstrated his aircraft and flying skills at the Special Olympics fly in. I was so impressed that I came down to Milwaukee and I stopped in your Store on 76th St get A plane. Laurie sold me A trainer that she recommended I think it was an Avistar. It was more then I expected to spend but it was well worth it. Scott took me out and showed me how to fly it. I was surprised how ignorant I was and thankful that he went out with me to teach me how to fly. I would have crashed it right away if it had been for hooking up the buddy box. Scott must have saved it at least a dozen times the first day out. Now that is Customer service. I was in the National store when you had a store full of customers and you were answering some ones questions about a car that he bought on the Internet

He did not even get it from you but you were trying to help him. He got mad at you because you had to ring me up on the register and he stormed out of the store. I don??t know how you have put up with some of these people.

All the Happy hobby shops have a very large selection of fun stuff for every one.

I have been in the other hobby shops all over the country. Nothing compares to your stores Happy Hobby. You have always been able to help me and have what I needed in stock. Thank You!

I recommend Happy Hobby to everyone ??Good choice?

Pros: a lot of JUNK!

Cons: owner has no customer service skills & has no time to deal w/ customers

Happy Hobby is amazing! I'm a science teacher and every year my students have to build model rockets and I always purchase my supplies from Happy Hobby. They have everything and the prices are very reasonable. Whether you're interested in rockets, model cars, gas powered cards, remote controlled airplanes, or a host of other hobbies, this is the place to go.

PROS: Literally, they have everything! Best hobby store in Milwaukee!
CONS: none
