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!

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.
