    From catalogs & the Web, lots of people know of this vendor of goofball gifts & toys. (Absinthe floss, anyone? Onion-scented breath mint?) Since 1983, the McPhee empire has included this retail shop. Read more

    Remember all those cool things you could order from the back of comic books? You can get them here along with the coolest stuff around. You'll spend hours browsing through this store. Bring money!

    Get some Cthulhu Tentacles for your fingers & pretend to be the Laughing Squid logo. Or bring Shana a Fluffernutter sandwich. Don't forget to visit the cryptozoological wonder: The Wallingford Beast!

    Welcome back to Wallingford, Archie! I now live within walking distance of Archie McPhee and Dick's Drive-in -- can life get any better than this?

    We dare you to go to Archie McPhee, then locate a weird product for each letter of the alphabet and then sign up for their free birthday registry. · November 13, 2012

    Cool postcards, I liked the repurposed stuff. Now that Halloween is around the corner, the store was full of great costume items.

    If you have a nine year old, five bucks will keep him busy in this store for quite a while.
