Sad news for Toys R Us fans...

Postby angeldeb82 » Thu Mar 15, 2018 6:55 pm

Toys R Us is filing for liquidation, likely spelling its end in the U.S. I'm gonna miss Toys R Us, that's for sure! :cartmansad:

Still the same as it ever was.

I remember when I had read of them having issues with this real big dangerous loan they took in the last year or so. I was expecting this and of course with Amazon putting everyone down, this only makes sense. I know for angeldeb82 and I we grew up where if there was a place to buy a toy, it was Toys R Us. I will miss them. I can't even remember the last time I was in one and bought something. I know when that NES mini came out I drove to one that was suppose to have one but it had sold out. I will add what seems slightly possible that an episode plot is right here.

I remember not being impressed by Toys R Us as child. They didn't have the selection of toys I wanted. I wanted like Matchbox cars that actually looked like the cars, trucks and machines out there on the road, all at about the same scale so they would look right next to each other. I didn't want these big dumb plastic 'cars' with like stupid faces on them and junk.

And Legos; this was the start of them making Lego sets that were movie tie-ins and I had no interest in that. I wanted either construction-themed or infrastructure-themed Legos. (I wish I had a picture of the asphalt paving machine I cobbled together out of various parts from other sets when I was 11 or 12.) Toys R Us always seemed to have more of the former than the latter. I tell you what I really wanted was some sort of like truck crane I could use when I was assembling other Lego sets and pretend the crane was lifting each brick into place to build whatever. For me, that would've been the cat's ass! But I guess that one is more on Lego than it is on Toys R Us.

Toys R Us is a sh*tty company and i'm glad it went bankrupt.
