A fresh update from Big Fun Toys for this holiday season!

Big Fun Toys: 2010 Update

“Big Fun in coming up on our 5th year under new (and great!) ownership and we are happy to say the customer support has been great! Our loyal locals (and out of town visitors) keep us constantly in the need for new toys and interesting items you might not find everywhere else!

Since being under new ownership, we’ve incorporated a Personalized section to our store. Items can be decorated with a theme of your choice and a child’s name for no extra charge. Many of our customers have taken this up as a great gift for the “kid who has everything”.

This year’s popular items have been things like Green Toys brand, whose entire line is made from recycled plastic milk jugs, and Bruder trucks, which are exact replicas made in Germany. Other favorites include Sophie the Giraffe (an all natural rubber teething toy), Orb Factory’s Sticky Mosaics (great art projects!), Playmobil, Ugly Dolls, Hexbugs, and Thomas the Train.

Not to mention some all time classics like Crazy Cat Lady, Instant Excuse 8 Ball, Stylish Moustaches, and the Bacon Wallet!

Some brand new products this year for us include Clementine Art products made out of entirely natural and safe ingredients, the Skuut Balance bikes, and the super-popular Maxi and Mini Kickboard Scooters.

And just in time for the holidays, this season’s latest trends include Sing-a-ma-Jigs, Sqwishies, Calico Critters, Loopz, Sonic Slam, and Elf on the Shelf, all of which you can find in stock here!

Aside from keeping new and exciting products in the store, we do our very bestest to help each and every customer find just what they’re looking for, or at least something close! We also still provide FREE gift wrapping on any item (except for weird things like…hula hoops).

Feel free to stop in and peruse any time, you never know what you might find!

Regular store hours Mon-Sat 10-7, Sun 11-6. Holiday Hours (Thanksgiving thru Christmas) Mon-Sat 10-8, Sun 10-7 – Christmas Eve 10-4.

Been a long time since I updated Big Fun! Last of this today’s mini business updates.

Yesterday, they were preparing to put their fancy new upgraded sign up. Much better than before, which just confused the bejesus out of people. Way to go, Big Fun!


11/09/2006 Update:

Long-time Hoboken Toy store under new ownership!

As of November 1st, Big Fun (which has been in business nearly 15 years) has a new owner. Jenny Robertson, who also has a toy store in Manasquan, NJ, had purchased the store from previous owners Joe Falzarano and Tracey Becker. Since they’ve long moved out to California, they wanted to focus their energy on new endeavors.

(Picture was taken over a week ago – before the re-org)

They plan on changing things up a bit, specifically adding new merchandise with a strong emphasis on personalized children’s gifts. The same friendly staff will remain, along with the same attentive service. I happen to love the gift-wrapping job they do at Christmas time.
