One thing is true of the holidays unless you’re a total Scrooge or Grinch: ’Tis the most wonderful time of the year… and the most magical, too. Though big-box toy giant Toys R Us may have closed all of its doors last year, the mom-and-pop toy shops of the world are holding it down, keeping the magic alive. St. Clair Shores’ family-operated Whistle Stop Hobby & Toy Inc. has been serving metro Detroit since 1970. Offering a wide array of model trains, dolls, books, musical instruments, fun educational tools, and, yes, Legos, Whistle Stop puts kids in the conductor’s seat.
