Midwest Living Review
The Only Difference Between Men and Boys is the Price of Their Toys says a prominent sign at the entrance of Woodstock Hobbies Ltd. And this store delivers on toys of all sizes for kids of all ages and interests. While serious train enthusiasts come here to complete their prized G to Z scale train layouts and to buy steam and diesel engines, they also hang out talking trains for hours. Slot cars, hot rod models, and hands-on science-project kits on how to build a volcano or ant farm make fun rainy day family activities, as do the good old-fashioned roll-the-dice board games, starting at $12. It's fun to poke around the radio-control aircraft, boats and car isles. Merchandise also is sold online. A chugging train display puffs in the large storefront windows making passersby pause, smile and stop in for toys just their size.
