Into the mid 1950's we see what a Hobby Shop looked like. Firebaby is on counter and shelf. Also, notice the late model Fireball on the top shelf. On the far lower right is a box of '74 Fighters.

ERNIE’S TOYLAND (418 Fourth Street).  Owner Ernie Coopman made this store into every child’s delight.  Both Coopman Jr. and Sr. truly knew the toy business, making Ernie’s Toyland Marysville’s finest and largest toy store; it stocked everything from babyland to bicycles on the second floor.  The store later moved to Yuba City before finally closing in the 1980s.
