BATAVIA, N.Y. (WKBW-TV) — Tucked away in a little corner of Batavia, N.Y. is a toy store that just celebrated a hundred years. The sign outside still says Adam Miller Toy and Bike, but John Roche took over the place in 2002 from the Miller family.

What makes this spot very special is that it's not just a toy store. John says "we've actually turned it into a bit of a museum. There's old toys, old games, old pictures and old bicycles."

The store specializes in some of the classic toys that have been reproduced like pick-up stix and tiddly winks. John says some customers bring back their childhood treasures to add to the stores collection. If you remember Red Ryder BB Guns, Tinker Toys and Lincoln Logs, you'll feel right at home here.

Adam Miller Toy & Bike is located at 8 Center St, Batavia, NY 14020. You can find more information at their website.
