    Oxford Comics & Games
    For serious toy collectors, OXFORD COMICS & GAMES is king. First, it's not totally age-exclusive. For actual kids, there's plenty of "Spawn" action figures and "Muppet Show" stuff.

    For serious toy collectors, OXFORD COMICS & GAMES is king. First, it's not totally age-exclusive. For actual kids, there's plenty of "Spawn" action figures and "Muppet Show" stuff. For the adult "fanboy" contingent, there's retro stuff ("Micronauts" in the original packaging!) and celeb stuff (a Marilyn Manson action figure with mutant sheep accessory). Toys include current faves like "The Simpsons," "Futurama" and Japanimation, along with retro pleasures like "Planet of the Apes" figures. Does it get any better than a talking Pee-Wee Herman doll or even a model of Kitt, the talking car from "Knight Rider"? Even if you aren't a hardcore fanboy, this display offers a bizarre trip down memory lane that's well worth exploring. "2855 Piedmont Road. 404-233-8682." less...

    You would have to be insane to bring your children here. Exposure to the place will give them a lifetime of wish lists. Go by yourself and figure out how you can incorporate those cool Curious George monkeys that do tricks while hanging from the ceiling into your home decorating scheme. Even if you buy nothing, a visit to the store is like a trip to an amusement park. less...
