My Toy Company – Tamiyaa RC Cars

After Mark‘s visit of the place I had to go check it out, I had the urge to take a look at some RC cars before futoor and luckily they are open from 10 am to 1pm and 5 pm to 12 am. They are odd hours but work out nicely, and its just as Mark described it, the place is huge, its an RC Car enthusiast’s dream come true. They moved it up to the 1st floor right next to Rouche Boubios, not exactly sure of that spelling though.

They have all forms of cars which are ready to race or the buildable ones. The ready to race cars range from 70KD up to 180KD depending which model you take, size and speed have a matter as well, and that doesn’t include that you can get accessories for them and improve them. I was tempted to get a small one which looked really cool and is meant for drifting but I thought I would think about it for now. And then there were the models which had to be built and you can get those in gas or electric and those range from 250 KD up to 600 KD plus with lots of different configurations and types, and some of these machines can go faster then most consumer cars.

There were so many spare parts available for all kinds of vehicles, and you can customize them in many ways. As Mark stated you can have a building area as well as a paint booth and a photography booth. Then they are building a track on the roof right next to them which is going to be huge and perfect for those drifting cars, they can even make some interesting jumps for those off-road machines, I’m curious how they are gonna design the track. This is all located in Tilal Center in Shuweikh right after City Center on Pepsi Street and opposite Home Center.

  1. Nice amount of pics :)

    I’m trying my best not to give-in and go there because I know I would by something, it beieng Ramadan and all the TV series (american not kuwaiti), games, movies and surfing, I just dont have the time.

    I might go there without my wallet :D

  2. when i 1st went there the place was half empty

  3. The first ‘My toy’ story i grew up knowing was in a shopping strip next to Khaled Al Zaid complex off Baghdad street in Midan Hawalli..

    I used to spend HOURS in that shop. I bought countless number of Tamiyaa model planes (all model planes, cars ..etc were located in the second floor of that store)

    I also bought 2 RC cars. The Boomerang an The Hornet – along with the Futaba RC and all the works.

    My Toy also had a fantastic Robotech line and remember buying my first VF-1S from that store..

    I didn’t know they were still in business. Thanks for the heads up. I will definitely visit them again on my next trip to Kuwait.

  6. I’m a big fan of Tamiya toys..ever since I was a kid, my dad would always buy car and airplane figures from Tamiya and eventually as I grew up I just enjoyed collecting remote controlled cars from Tamiya specially the ferrari models.Nice shop you found, lots of great stuff out there, I bet you visit the shop regularly huh.

  7. I have been a toy collector for the longest time, yet I am never tired of looking and checking out toys. I think they are one of the greatest material things in life.
