Continuing with some fun more recent interior scenes, here is then-owner of Hood River Hobbies, John Frick, demonstrating the hot toy of the season in December, 2008. The demo must have been successful, because I took one of those helicopters home. It annoyed my dog for many years after.

Now, that photo should be a classic for many moons to come.

Love it. Should've been a local beer, though.

GREAT photo except for the Walmart bag......but then again plastic bags will be an artifact in the near future...….

There's something special about a "toy store" that attracts 5 year olds and 50 year olds.

Early helicopters, and a bottle of beer on the side. I can just imagine someone like you Arthur, looking at the photo and trying to read the names on the toy boxes

I attended Coe Primary in the very early 60's, I remember Mrs. Frick was the principal, any relation to John?
