Who We Are
At the Imperial Castle we are focused on providing the community with a wonderful destination store in the heart of the Hudson Valley. From Funko and Shopkins to Lego and vintage GI Joe we are committed to giving every visitor a great shopping and visual experience. Run by Johnpaul Ragusa, a vintage toy collector and owner of Imperialgunnery (a global expert in vintage Star Wars authentication), the store is made to be a place for people who love toys. It's that simple. If you need a gift, we have great advice and a concierge style service you'll never get from a big-box store. We have invested in inventory, so you can walk out with your item and not wait by the mailbox just to see and touch your purchase. The 'castle' will be expanding to offer a safe, fun and enjoyable place for kids of all ages. Lego trade club, Pop Culture Trivia and various activities will be on the menu.
Our message, mantra, and mission is very simple. - "Offer an experience you can't get anywhere"
It's simple. Toy Stores have become either a warehouse or mailbox. We want you to enjoy being at the toy store as much as you'll enjoy your purchases when you leave!
