    Toy shops in Honolulu
    I will be visiting Honolulu next week and was wondering if there were any toy shops I should be hitting up.
    Also if anyone knows a area that that has vintage shops that would be great.

    I don't know of anything in particular, as I haven't been myself, but from my online dealings I would have to say that for some reason (and I guess it is the influx of Japanese to Hawaii as a vacation spot and surfing destination) Hawaii seems to be the next greatest source of vintage kaiju and Japanese vinyl I have seen after Japan. Kikaider especially is hugely popular there.Weird, but that seems to be just the way it is. Could be that its relative isolation cause a lot of toy 'hand-me-downs' and recycling and such, whereas in other places kids convinced their parents to buy them the latest fad. So anyways, good luck on the hunt!
