My kids talk about Toys R’ Us like it’s a deceased relative.
Any time the word toys gets mentioned, they both bow their heads and muttering something like “yeah…too bad Toys R’ Us is gone.”
I’m not sure if it’s because they miss the thrill of going to a toy store — because buying kid’s toys online isn’t as much fun — or they assume companies just stopped making toys.
Because they never see toys at:
- Dollar Store
- Grocery store
- Doctor’s office
- Leaving a museum
- Entering a museum
- The boardwalk
- God damn everywhere
Don’t get me wrong. I’m bummed out too.

I just finished watching the documentary series “The Toys That Made Us” and a recurring thought was how much “going to the toy store” meant as a kid. This sucks for kids of this and future generations unless another company steps up. #toys #kids #childhoodmemories #toysrus
No need to honor the dead toy stores by being somber and sullen. They still come in contact with toys at every single turn.
They’ll get plenty of opportunities to beg me for stuff for their entire childhood.
