About Apelan Hobbies and Collectibles

    Apelan Hobbies & Collectibles started as a small internet based business, which over the last ten years has grown to a family owned hobby shop and toy store. In June 2003, we moved our small internet business into a retail store located in Westchester, California. We have increased our selection of products, to the point of running out of space. In June 2011, we relocated one block away. The current store is double the size of the old store. This has let us carry more products for all of our customers. We have been able to create a shipping department just for our internet sales.
    We carry a full line of Radio Controlled helecopters, planes, boats, cars and trucks. In the store, we have a large selection of trains and track. We carry Scalextric slot cars and track. We stock racks of hobby grade wood, metal and paints. Our store is stocked with a large selection of plastics models from many brands. To support our local community, we carry Estes rockets and Pine Wood Derby supplies. We also carry Ball Jointed Dolls and bears from many artists and toys for the little ones.
    If you come to Los Angeles, please stop by the store. We are located one mile north of LAX. We would be happy to help you with your hobby needs.
