Great Lakes Hobby and Toy was founded over 30 years ago as a major craft distributor. Over the years we have transformed ourselves into one of the largest hobby and toy shops in the Midwest. The store is over 10,000 square feet and contains more than a million dollars in inventory.
We pride ourselves in carrying the finest products at discounted prices. We have over 35,000 unique items in stock. The incredible product selection allows us to have something for every person in your household. We have everything from dollhouses for mom to trains for dad and microscopes for your daughter and a plentiful selection of Thomas the Tank products for the brother.
Much of our success is attributed to our employees and customers. The inventory is constantly changing based upon the needs of our customers and the knowledge of our employees. If itís a hot item, our store will have it!
In addition, our friendly staff is available to help solve all your hobby needs, from building model kits to train layouts to flying a plane or a kite. We have the knowledge and products to complete any hobby project.
We welcome your family to come visit our store to run our 256 square foot train layout. Kids of all ages will love it!
