Irving's Toy & Card Shop in Brookline

I'll tell you what — nothing makes you feel like a kid again like cheap plastic toys and awesome candy. In preparation for my "Sweet 16 (Plus 14)" Pajamie-Jam this weekend, I swept off at lunch today to Irving's Toy and Card Shop in Brookline. I had so much fun buying random toys like a Magic 8 Ball, Silly Putty, Slinky, Flutophone, an Echo Microphone and tons of yummy candies like Now&Later, Airheads, Ring Pops, Push Pops, Lemonheads, Atomic Firebombs, Nerds and more...

Check out this photo of the ever awesome Ethel who has been ringing up the old-time cash register since 1942! What a great institution!
