I will ALWAYS be a Toys R Us Kid!!

Okay, can I just vent real quick about the closing of Toys R Us? 

I was there for the last day it was open and to be honest as a 30-year-old woman I almost cried! Is this real? This cannot be life right now! It was so bare, the Barbie aisle was gone, the Lego aisle was gone, I can’t test drive the bikes and scooters in the aisles and hope that I do not get caught anymore. Everything was 80% to 90% off at that point and about 5 different toys to pick from. I really wish I had more than enough money to keep at least one Toys R Us store open. I know that there are a lot of other places to buy toys from, for example, Amazon but do you really get the same experience? The small mom and pop toy stores I feel are overpriced and have more of the nostalgic toys and just doesn’t compare to a huge warehouse toy store. 

I remember getting my first Barbie at Toys R Us. What saddens me the most is that I will never get to see the expression on my son’s face that I had as a kid the first time I walked into Toys R Us. He will never get to be part of Geoffrey the Giraffe’s birthday club. There was a post that I saw on social media that had said: “I guess everyone has grown up there’s no more Toys R Us Kids”. Ummmmm, wait!!! I am right here and I can bring the rest of my grown-up friends who are kids at heart! Guess that was not enough to stop them from closing. I will always have my memory of Toy R Us and thank you for 70 years! Wish it could’ve been to a 100!

    The same here @msantos. I used to bring my children at the weekend to Toys R Us to buy Barbie and puzzles for my children and enjoy family time with them. But now no more Toys R Us, just only my memory of happy time.

I feel as though I was born to write, to be able to express myself. I started to write when I was in 7th grade. Never liked the term diary so I always called it my journal. I would write about my day from beginning to end. I would go as far as to write every single text message I received that day [...]
