    Shop Talk: Big Fun Toy Store
    Published on May 21, 2013 8:00 am

    If you’re feeling a little down, you might want to swing by new Big Fun Toy Store, which opens its doors on Friday, May 31st. Occupying the 1,200-square-foot former Europia space at 672 N. High St., Big Fun is reentering the Columbus market after leaving it in the mid-nineties. (The first time around, Big Fun was located near the Ohio State University campus for three years.)

    It should smell like rubber PeeWee Herman masks in there so that’s halfway there ;)

    Behind the Scenes: Bet on Big Fun at the Short North’s new gag gift hot spot
    By Jackie Mantey
    From the May 30, 2013 edition

    If you only read Playboy for the articles, you have probably heard of Big Fun. In 2009 the porno pub picked the Cleveland toy shop for its list of the coolest stores in America. Being named one of the 20 (which included another Ohio cool-shopping mainstay, Cincinnati’s Jungle Jim’s) was a huge point of pride for the store’s owner, Steve Presser. It was also a point of confusion for readers who flipped through Playboy for more than just the articles.

    Per Facebook, Big Fun is closing their Cleveland Location to focus on their Coventry (Akronish?) Location. Let’s hope the Columbus Location is still doing well enough to stick around.

    Coventry is in the Heights on the Eastside

    I was thinking Coventry township and thought that was off. Staying open in the heights makes so much more sense than an Akron Suburb.
