Sore Thumb Retro Games

About us

Yorkshire’s best-stocked retro games and toy shop.

We stock games and hardware for all the most-loved (and unloved) consoles. From the late 70’s to the
current day. From well-known classics that were available in the UK and Europe, to lesser-known consoles and
games that were only available in Japan. Our ever-growing retro toys section has favourites such as TMNT,
MASK, Star Wars and much more. If Pokemon is your thing, we have a large selection of items and games
from the popular show.
