( If you grew up in the 2000s, then Hobbes and Landes was probably one of your fave places to visit at the mall. The specialty store, which first opened in July 2002, was built out of a love for board games and other family-friendly activities. They also offer puzzles, toys, collectibles, crafting kits, and more. In the smartphone-saturated age we live in, the nearly 20-year-old shop feels almost like an artifact of the past. But in sad news for kids of the aughts, Hobbes and Landes is closing down their flagship store in Bonifacio High Street, BGC. Their last day of operation will be on January 31.
