About Us

Hobby Express opened in 1993 in Mars. Pa. We relocated in 2003 to the Cranberry Commons, where we became bigger and better.  We're still growing, expanding and trying to be the best we can for you!


We are a full line hobby store with something for everyone in our ever growing selection. Starting with our youngest fans we have Thomas, Melissa+Doug, Playmobil, Plush to puppets, as well as Bruder Trucks. For the growing and curious minds, we have science kits, art supplies and crafts kits. Rainy Day? We have a large selection of puzzles, paint by numbers, board games and card games for all ages. Model trains in all scales, N, H0, S, O, and G for a basic train under the tree and nearly everything to turn them in to the most elaborate layout. Model kits of cars, tanks, figures, Sci-fi planes, and ships. Slot cars in HO, 1/43, 1/32, and 1/24 scale. When the sun comes out we have lots of options for that too, find a big field and launch a model rocket or take more control and fly or drive remote control vehicles. We carry RC cars, boats, planes, helis, and quads with lots of replacement parts and accessories for them. And don't forget us when the school projects come up and pinewood derby.


We hope to see you in here soon, but if you can't make it in here in person feel free to call us, or drop us an email. We'll be happy to help you in any way we can.
