Nestled into the sprawling Los Angeles metropolis is a neat little twelve block grid that’s the stuff childhood dreams are made. The multilingual, multicultural area consists of pastel-painted one-and-two-story buildings that house more than five-hundred toy and electronic related businesses. Popular with the bargain hunter variety, the establishment of the Toy District began one 1980’s summer when a physics student at UCLA, Charles Woo, took a summer off to help his family members launch ABC Toys; a wholesale business. Less than a decade later, ten Toy District buildings and a distribution company all belonged to the Woo Family, with estimated sales over $30 million annually. Woo single-handedly built up the Toy District by encouraging other Asian-immigrant entrepreneurs, who were buying toys from him, to open their own businesses in the community as well.
With so many years of toy making and distributing is it any wonder that the Toy District is home to some of the coolest places in Los Angeles? Some of the best things to do in Los Angeles, if you’re getting your start in the Toy District, include places like Cal Toys, Tom’s Model, Entertainment Hobby Shop Jungle, Little Tokyo, M.S. Toys, Pershing Square, The Broad, OUE Skyspace LA, El Pueblo de Los Angeles, Grand Park, the STAPLES Center, Autry Museum of the American West, Soap Plant, and even the Walt Disney Concert Hall.
