Bim Bom Inc., the children’s toy store, has shuttered its 1207 Avenue U location. It’s too bad – I enjoyed looking for gifts for my nieces here. They had a good selection of affordable gifts and crafts that you couldn’t get at a store like Toys “R” Us.

    I thought that was a cute store. And they had some rather interesting items there. I guess they've become another victim of the “recession”.

    I think the “weird” store used to be there. The one that was all dark and sold God knows what. Or was the corset store there?

    It was a nice store. They had really cool matchbox car sized die cast metal vehicles, but not like ones you would ever see in toys r us. Kids loved it, and grandma's house was not too far away. It brought a bit of class to that stretch of avenue U.
