Toys R Us closed its doors for the final time Friday, June 29, 2018. The American toy, clothing, video game, and baby product retailer had been in business for 61 years. Many will say its definitely the end of an era for the now defunct toy store.  News that Toys R Us would close permanently was bittersweet for those who grew up singing…”I wanna be a Toys R Us kid.” The infamous theme song energized starry-eyed kids who anticipated all the toys they wanted for Christmas and birthdays.

In the age of video games, smart phones and tablets—Toys R Us fell behind keeping up with the times that captured the attention of young children and teens. A time where toys once dominated the playtime of our youth in the same manner kids loved to go outside and play. We are still hopeful history will repeat itself, and toys will one day replace gadgets to keep our children entertained without the need to be in front of a screen all day.
