This place is more of a play place than an ice cream shop. The amount of toys available for kids (and adults) is amazing! The ice cream is great also. The guy that runs the place is very friendly.

First time visitor to this quaint little shop. It was so filled with ambience and collectibles that I was enchanted with my eyes long before I tasted the really delicious ice cream. The owner was so eager to make sure we had a good and this is the kind of business that I love to support.

We saw good reviews for this place and drove a bit further than planned to give it a try. So glad we took the time - great ice cream, great owner (Bill) and a wonderfully fun shop. Scoops are very generous and reasonable (I'm so done with $6 kiddie scoops at the chains).

The ice- cream is delicious. I love the cinnamon ice- cream. I also love the mango sorbet also. Step into a time warp and have fun. This is the place for young and old kids. Just have fun!

The ice cream here is perfect. The shop has lots of cool decor and lots of fun stuff. There's a kids area with lots of neat kids toys and games. There's also an adults area with adult board games. The staff is super friendly. Great for all ages.

We had yummy ice cream here in ABQ and enjoyed the store filled with Bill's collection of toys, games, books, album covers and do much more. You could spend hours here eating ice cream and playing games and reminiscing about the childhood games you used to okay that are found in this store . Don't miss this Albuquerque gem.
