Never got any video games from Toys r Us but they did have the best Lego trainset setup I'd ever seen when I were a laddie.

Long time ago that was 😒

Toys R Us has nostalgic gaming and work memories for me. I purchased A Vectrex when it came out, also Commodore 64 games and accessories.
I worked there the year the NES was released we sold out of the NES everyday for the month of December that year!

I remember taking trips to toys r us to buy tekken 3 on ps 1. Ibdont have internet back then to see if a game was delayed. Had to go back like 3 times. In the end tekken is 1 of the best games I ever played.

Still take my kids there, even just to window shop like I did as a kid. Looking for new DC imaginext figures that toys r us never stocks. Don’t know about the states but up here, we rarely get new waves of anything. Their own fault for not having competitive pricing or merchandise. Buncha bollocks

Why do I have the suspicion that walmart might have something to do with this? We are losing all kinds of stores like toys r us and kmart, and I feel like walmart has a part in it.

Walmart,Target & online shopping has everything to do with Toys r Us closing. Most folks do their toy shopping at those stores & Amazon.
