Where Everyone's A Kid

ABC Wednesday is right below

Hobbymasters is a hobby and toy store in Red Bank, NJ. The place is huge and filled to the brim with all kinds of delights.

As you can see the store is pretty hard to miss ...





I mentioned to the owner that all the running trains and product videos must cost a fortune in electric bills and was thrilled to be told that the entire building is powered by solar panels on the roof.

Making people and the planet a little bit happier.

I enlarged these and the murals are just super.
I think I spotted the blue panels on the roof. Kudo's to the owner!

Fabulous that they use solar panels. Now, if we could just get them to do that in Vegas! It's not like they don't have the sun. LOL (Maybe they do, but I would think that we would have heard about it.)

Not to mention the fact that it looks like such a cool shop! :)
