To be frank, if you don't like Yikes, a Tucson favorite for seemingly forever, you hate joy. There are so few places to actually buy toys these days, without resorting to the giant box stores, but Yikes is still there, providing a home for wind-up toys, bodily-fluid shaped novelties and those amazing fortune telling fish. Need a purse that looks like a chicken? Well, of course you do, but where else would you get one other than Yikes? Now we just have to convince them to re-open a location downtown.
