Red Hot Robot
Owned by former magazine art director Jason Kiningham, this designer toy shop sells a variety of collectable robots, Japanese figurines, graphic T-shirts, and local art prints. The spacious store, situated in Bethel East, welcomes both avid collectors and casual buyers. Among the inventory are vinyl toys such as Sketchbot and Kidrobot; mini figures by Marvel, Lego, and Android; Hello Kitty charms; finger monsters; and Uglydoll merchandise. Items range from $1.50 knickknacks to $280 designer robots. The shop is open every day except Monday, when it's closed to "recharge."
