Richfield Reviews by Kerry Galbraith

With neighborhood roots going back over 30 years, Hub Hobby Center offers all things collectible. Whether you are a serious adult collector, or have children that need entertaining, Hub Hobby Center has something for all ages. There are very few hobby shops left in the country with such a vast collection of toy train parts for the avid train collector. Packed full of model trains, radio control cars, drones, boats and planes, Hub Hobby is the destination for serious collectors.

Aisle After Aisle of Every Toy, Game, Puzzle or Collector’s Item You Could Imagine!

I stopped in to Hub Hobby on a rainy Wednesday afternoon right when the store opened at 10am. Hub Hobby is located on Penn Avenue, right in the heart of Richfield. I strolled through aisle after aisle of every imaginable toy, game, puzzle, art supply and collector’s item you could imagine. I love how this shop caters to both young and old, with an interactive play area toward the front, and more expensive collectibles displayed in back.

Shop employees seemed friendly and knowledgeable, and best of all, very happy to be there. Their enthusiasm and passion for rare collectibles was infectious, even for something like myself who knows almost nothing about toy collecting. Hub Hobby will be my first stop the next time I need to pick up a birthday present for a child. I even saw a few classics from my own childhood such as “Shrinky Dinks” and “Caboodles.” I thoroughly enjoyed my trip down memory lane at Hub Hobby and look forward to returning for Christmas gifts soon!
