You can lose track of time in this knick-knack heaven. This wacked out store is like a toy-shop on steroids and acid!

There's the perfect gift for everyone at this cool eastside shop... you'll easily get lost for hours perusing cool books, playing with wind up toys or wondering what those "bacon flavored" edibles taste like.

Ok. – I love this bookstore. I always end up spending too much money when I come in here, but I always find something good to buy. It is a very relaxed atmosphere with cats walking around everywhere and two stories of books lining the walls ( and sometimes floors.) sometimes the books will be signed or valuable in other ways so you have to check the price, but you can spend hours in here looking through the selection.

A beautiful, beautiful store. I was so captivated by their collection they had to kick me out after closing. Amazing books, some quite expensive, other not quite, all of them gorgeous. Expect to be impressed.

A trip, for sure – This store fits its name - wacko - it's got tons of cool stuff to browse through. Good for when you're feelin a little frivolous and need to take a long walk.

best toys in town – The best part about shopping at Wacko is that when I am done I have to run to Home Depot and build another shelf on my wall. The Toys here are the best finds in town.

Groovy Store – This place is a blast from the past, I could spend hours looking around. It's a real sensory overload and my foavorite place to shop for off the wall stuff.

One of a kind store! – One of the signature stores of Los Angeles. Wacko carries everything from incense and lava lamps to Tiki art and great toys. The crown jewel is the bookstore. This ain't Borders. Wacko carries books for the discerning reader: cult, film, classics, photography, death, and anything else. The staff is courteous and knowledgable; lots of fun. Parking on Hollywood Boulevard is possible, but your best bet is the neighborhood streets.

A Hollywood trifecta of all things cool--tchotchkes, books and art. – In Short
Whether you're in the market for a glow-in-the-dark dashboard saint, Dirty Girl bubble bath or outsider art from the Deep South, this cavernous shop is the place to come. The staff is just as eclectic as the merchandise. Billy Shire oversees the gallery, and staffers will happily help you with everything from the pricey, mixed-media tableaux of Madonna and Child and flirty vintage Chinese posters to va-va-voom girlie cake-toppers and Coop's naughty "devil girl" stickers.

Best novelty gift-shopping in LA – Whever I need a gift for a friend (or myself), I head to Wacko. There is literally something for everyone--an impressive selection of books on high- and lowbrow topics, a stunning array of tiki barware, fine art, collectible toys, cards and stationery, wrapping paper, party favors; the list goes on and on. I always take my out-of-town guests here, as it is a guaranteed good time!

Hollyweird Cool – Wacko used to be a little more hipster when it was on Melrose. Now it seems like everyone and their mother shops there, especially around the holidays. The prices are a lot higher than they used to be as well, and I miss the cats that used to sleep in the store all the time. That hall of mirrors was a classic as well.

In any event, the goods are still good. It's still a great place to find artsy hardcover books, windup desk toys, lava lamps or peruse the lowbrow art in La Luz de Jesus gallery.
