Review №1


As I walked along East 86th Street, I spotted [ MODERN STATE ] through and under claustrophobic scaffolding and down a half-flight of stairs. Im glad I went through and down because this is a GEM of a store! Mainly a Toy & Party Store, it has extensive areas of Stationery, Art Supplies, and a good selection of Candy. I will return so I can more thoroughly peruse its many offerings.

They used to have an awesome selection of hot wheels but like always one guy brought everything like a scalper that he looked like he was and taking the fun out of car hunting for what we look for,so until then i hope they restock soon🙏🏻💯🇺🇲

This is a hidden gem. Amazing shop for kids activities. They even have bilingual first words books and there are great discounts. Excited to return!

Review №4


Great store with wide selection and good folks working there. It is a great place to pick up decorations, costumes, toys for any holiday. They always cycle in inventory for whatever is coming up. They have a really great toy selection. Its probably as wide a selection, if not wider, than the Target that recently opened on 86th. Plus you cant beat the character of a local store.

Cramped store full of so much choice and options. From stationary to party supplies to all kinds of toys. And balloons! A great place in the neighborhood for a variety of items.

This is a wonderful toy store as soon as you walk in you feel like you are back to the 70’s and 80’s the place is a hidden gem.

Review №7


I come here to shop for childrens toys, games and crafts, as well as writing pens. I love the ones (Uni-ball & Papermate) that doesnt smear. For me the prices are high but I can find things with ease. Today I realized for the first time that they even sell Lichen.

One of the few toy stores left in the neighborhood I take my son here all the time. Its a great party store but the toys are a little overpriced but my little guy loves going toy shopping here so its worth it. I just wish they had a bigger selection.

Its a mix of a crafts store, toy store, art supply store, school supply store and a party store in a large cavernous space.Ive gone there to find paper and paint for watercolor, foam balls for a childs school project, acrilic paint for my wife, balloons for a party, toys for a birthday and Halloween costume supplies for my anniversary.The staff is helpful and knowledgeable about their stock without having to look it up in a computer. Its a neighborhood staple.
