Neighborhood: Union Square
Type of Place: Books Toys Collectibles
Forbidden Planet is a treasure trove for collectors of hard-to-find toys, games, books and comics. It's also a great spot when hunting for a unique gift. During our visit we spotted a great "Grumpy Cat" stuffed animal, Sailor Moon dolls from Japan and a slew of Star Wars characters, ranging from a few bucks to several hundred for a jumbo Wampa. Adventure Time figures, including Finn with a rotating face, are hot sellers, along with Game of Thrones. Other finds include a collection of Charlie Brown drink glasses, Spider-Man ice cube trays, KISS dolls and a Rocky Horror Picture Show handbag. You will find it next to the Strand Bookstore in the East Village. Happy shopping!
