Featured Item of the Week: Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Need Father’s Day gift ideas? It’s coming on June 16th! 

We have die-cast golf carts! 
Great gift to coincide with a note or card for your father with a special message to take the day off and enjoy a game of golf on the family.


We also have M&Ms!
Stock up on your dad’s favorite sports team colors to add an extra special touch for Father’s Day.


Dad’s love to build models and we
have Ships, Armor, Airplanes and cars. If you already have a model and need supplies come on in to restock for Father’s Day.


Has Dad always dreamed of owning an expensive sports car? Well why not get him one, just a little smaller than what he was expecting. At least it’s the thought that counts! 🙂

From Corvettes to Lamborghini’s, we have a nice selection of die-cast toy cars to choose from.


How about a RC Truck for Dad this Father’s Day? It’s an entry level option that’s affordable yet fun to run.

Everything is included in the kit. Just charge the battery and off you go!
