If bicycles and board games are no longer enough, fear not, now you can have the ultimate toy — a $13.5 million Hamptons mansion belonging to 92-year-old Toys “R” Us founder Charles Lazarus.

Lazarus’ Quogue compound recently hit the market and includes a lighthouse-shaped guesthouse, a professional croquet court, and a massive outdoor pool, the New York Daily News reported.

The main house has six bathrooms and eight bedrooms and spans 6,500 square feet. It was built in 1900 after another house on the grounds burned down following a lightning strike.

Brown Harris Stevens’ Marcia Altman has the listing, but would not confirm the identity of the owner. [NYDN] — Tess Hofmann
