RIP Toys R Us 1948-2018

My tribute to the late American toy and juvenile-products retailer founded in 1948 and headquartered in Wayne, New Jersey, in the New York City metropolitan area. Founded by Charles P. Lazarus in its modern incarnation in 1957, Toys "R" Us traces its origins to Lazarus' children's furniture store, which he started in 1948. He added toys to his offering, and eventually shifted his focus.

One of the few places I loved going as a kid.  Now only the memories remain.

Looks like Amazon and eBay are winning. I used to go to Toys 'R' Us when I was a kid before we had Internet connections.

Is this just in the States? Because the Toys R Us in the Philippines is still open.
