In a world of super-duper, mega-huge stores like Wal-Mart, Target and Toys "R" Us, it seems like it would be hard to run a toy store any smaller than the state of Texas and still continue to thrive. However, Yikes! Toys manages to accomplish that feat with ease. Although it cannot compete with the big-box stores in size, it easily beats them when it comes to having a greater variety of toys. Yikes! Toys has puppets, kites, pull toys and cool lamps for all kids to enjoy, from those still in diapers to pre-teens. Toys "R" Us can keep on being humongous; Yikes! Toys has the stuff you won't find anywhere else.
