    I’m not from Columbus, but I remember coming down here with my mom and grandma when I was young and going to a completely awesome toy store. I think it might have been near the Continent?

    I remember that store. Small shop with a couple of floors and a lot of unique toys? I don’t remember the name of it.

    No, I’m pretty sure that was a chain that we had in NE Ohio too. This was different.

    I’m not sure what you are talking about, but this conversation reminded me of the ‘Big Fun’ toy store that used to be here. There is still one up in Coventry (Cleveland). That place rocks.

    Kit444’s entire list.

    *The Centrum skating rink.
    *The neighborhood swimming pool – mine was Cabana West and it had a high dive and a giant slide. Insurance companies don’t like those these days. Best french fries ever.
    *The talking tree at Lazarus during Christmas.
    *My favorite arcade at Westland Mall was Aladdin’s Castle. I was the Tempest queen.
    *The bread, and everything else, at Tapatio

    1. People exercise-walking in the old Lane Avenue shopping center in winter mornings
    2. Worthington Scottie McBean
    3. Chipotle giving free drinks to students (not all that long ago, haha)
    4. The Chill
    5. The Purple Onion (I think this is what it was called–somewhere down in SN? Always used to go for breakfast with my parents…)

    Big Fun, oh yes that place was, well, big fun!

    Ah Pane Bakery, one of my old managers at the bookstore ran it.

    It was the Toy Box! You passed it as you headed toward the French Market. I love that place!

    That was it! Where was that in terms of today’s geography?
