U.S. Toy, a fixture in south KC for 40 years, is moving

For over 40 years U.S. Toy has been making children's dreams come true. A small, family-run business, today they're fighting to survive against the Goliath that is Amazon. As part of that battle they're relocating to a new facility at 119th Street and Metcalf, taking over the old Office Max location.

Barney's right no loss to KC.

Just another case of what the Financial Industry used to call the "Grandson Syndrome" (Grandpa worked his butt off to build it, Son remembers how hard Dad worked, Grandson says "Heck, the money's always been there!" and lets the business go to hell!).

If they want to make it at their new JoCo location they will need to add sex toys to their inventory.

The business is already in Leawood and has been for 40 years.
