You’re never too old to collect toys!
The collectible toy market is a booming segment of the global toy industry, which is estimated to reach $120 billion USD in revenue by 2023. Characterized by impeccable craftsmanship, exclusivity, and collaborations that play on pop culture nostalgia, designer toy collectibles bring out the childhood spirit in us at any age.
There’s nothing quite like the joy and wonder of browsing through the toy store for that limited edition toy figurine to complete your collectible toy shelves, and it’s a rewarding sense of accomplishment when you happen to complete your quest!
Located at Richmond Centre and Metropolis at Metrotown, ToKEN Toy Emporium is one of the best designer toy retailers in Metro Vancouver. Featuring a variety of collectible figurines, blind boxes, and other unique toys, the store is a delightful haven for toy collectors and pop culture lovers alike.
