Ahem. Mi mi mi mi mi! Here we go…
“I don’t want to grow up. I’m a Toys R Us kid! There’s a million toys at Toys R Us that I can play with! From bikes to trains to video games, it’s the biggest toy store there is! I don’t want to grow up, cuz maybe if I did, I couldn’t be a Toys R Us kid!”
Thank you. I’m here all week. Tip your waitresses.
Sad news, 3.5 readers. I can tell you, as an 80s kid, it was quite the awesome experience to visit a Toys R Us. I’m not sure today’s kids got it as much because toys are everywhere. Long before Amazon, I felt big stores with big toy sections like Wal-Mart were seriously cutting into Toys R Us’ action. I assume Amazon and online shopping did too, though I read an article stating the company also had debt problems.
So…alas, another iconic retail chain bites the dust. Will you visit your local Toys R Us for one last spin amongst the toys?
