Access Park Kenilworth

I have fond memories of Access Park in Kenilworth. The earliest I can remember would have been the early 1990's when we'd pop down after visiting my Ouma.

As a kid I really enjoyed the toy shops there. In fact it was at one of these toy stores that I found a "winning" Jotun Troll Monster in My Pocket figurine. PRIMA TOYS had a special deal where if you found Jotun with a star on his back they would send you 20 free monsters.

Later on, around 1997, my parents purchased our first computer from a store in Access Park. It was a Cyrix 686, and I remember that the CD-ROM drive would spin up a bit too much making weird sounds.
