Christmastime is toy time, with the season exposing the very core of our obsession with shiny collections of geeky amusements and novelties in all colors, shapes, and sizes.

Toy Tokyo in New York City's East Village is a sparkling repository for an incredible array of imported toys, monster model kits, rare games, and retro replicas. SYFY WIRE took a little field trip to this tempting toy store to see what wonders stocked the shelves inside and discovered a treasure to behold.

 

Owner Lev Levarek was our gracious host for this excursion and took us on a tantalizing tour of his eye-catching establishment, offering up peeks of everything from bright tin-toy robots and a gargantuan army of Godzilla figures to an exclusive glow-in-the-dark Funko vinyl and imported kaiju dolls from Japan, China, and Hong Kong.

Step inside Toy Tokyo and tell us which intriguing items you'd love Santa to bring you.
