Terra Toys Resurfaces


We've watched the growing gentrification of South Congress consume those places that created its character. The saddest news of all was reported earlier this year, when it was announced that Terra Toys would be vacating their premises. The question everybody wanted to know is would they relocate elsewhere or be gone for good?

While driving home tonight I saw a happy sight. At the strip mall at the northwest corner of Anderson Ln. and Burnett Rd., I saw a store being remodeled with a big Terra Toys sign out front.

It's great to see they've found a home. This move is particularly symbolic for me. I lived in South Austin for over a dozen years and never expected I'd move north of the river. I did just beginning of this year. In fact, I'm living just down the road from the new Terra Toys location. So, I'd like to welcome them to the hood.
