  • Amazing collection We stopped in because we needed something to do while in Evanston, and it seemed quirky enough. Plus it was free. We were amazed by the extent of the collection. They have scavenger hunts, which might help with the sensory overload.
  • Don’t go by there posted open store hours - I’ve been there twice at different days and different times/hours and stores supposed store OPEN hours - and they where closed - do yourself a favor and wasting your time and trip - CALL FIRST - to see if they are really open -
