Joshua Lopez stands in front of a large selection of sports figures, just a small
sample of his vintage toy inventory at Toys from Lo.
Self-proclaimed member of "the Nintendo Generation," Joshua Lopez used to sell games from his home-grown collection on eBay until friends suggested he open up a storefront.

Now Lopez, 36, has done just that, opening Toys from Lo at 50 Locust Street in the former John's Furniture store.

Toys from Lo carries everything imaginable, focusing on vintage toys and video games from old-school Nintendo cartridges to He-Man action figures, sports memorabilia and board games.

For Lopez, who lives on Adam Street, it's a huge life upgrade from what he used to do. Having spent time in prison, he's excited to be on the straight and narrow and focused on becoming a positive role model.

Toys from Lo is a registered member of the Niagara County "Thank A Vet" program, which offers discounts to military veterans as a sign of appreciation for their service.

Toys from Lo has somewhat unusual hours for Lockport. It's open noon - 3 p.m. Sunday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. - 11 p.m. Friday, and noon - 10 p.m. Saturday. Lopez says he wanted to stay open late for kids and parents alike.

"They might want a game at 7:45 on a Friday night," he said.

Grady Burch and Josh Lopez Jr. play Super Mario Bros. at Toys from Lo, a new game and toy store on Locust Street.
