About Us

Hello. My name is Jeremy Truxillo. In 2004, my wife Melissa and I first opened Big Boy Toys and Hobbies. We began with only a meager inventory, a 1,000 sq. ft. space, and a vision: to provide quality hobby and specialty toy products to families and hobbyists in the Lafayette area.

For the past 11 years, we have done just that. It has been our joy to provide families with top-notch products and outstanding service. We continuously strive to meet your toy and hobby needs, expanding over the years to offer a wide range of products.

Today, our once small shop has doubled in size. We now offer a large variety of products, from remote control vehicles, planes, helicopters, and boats to educational toys, puzzles, plastic models, school project supplies, and so much more.

Our passion is helping families discover the fun that hobbies can provide. We also specialize in helping beginners delve into new hobbies. No matter what your age, we want to help you discover the joy and new found energy that a hobby can add to your life.

Our mission has always been to provide the best customer service possible. That’s why we have assembled a team of professional hobbyists who are here to answer your questions and help you get the most enjoyment out of your purchase. Whether you are shopping for a specific product or browsing for new possibilities, we want to assist you in any way we can.

Why buy from us?

Big Boy Toys and Hobbies is where quality meets quantity. Other stores may sell products that don’t work properly or that break within a few days of purchase that can’t be repaired. At Big Boy Toys and Hobbies, we go out of our way to ensure that you will be satisfied with your purchase. We seek out the best brands and products, attending multiple trade show each year to find the latest and greatest products in the industry. We only sell products that we fully support.
