In March, Toys R Us announced that it was closing all 800 of its US stores, a final chapter for so many now-grownups who grew up begging their parents to take them to the iconic toy store.


countless trips to toysrus as a child only to find out it’s closing down for good in six weeks. my heart

A whole generation of ToysRUs kids are crying inside right now. Smh

And then this happened.

And as if that photo wasn’t enough, just look at what happens when you go to the Toys R Us website.

Seeing the empty store has hit people right in the depths of their childhood nostalgia.

Final proof of the inevitable – that the stores are really closing forever …


This just made me so sad.


I heard they were closing and didn’t even care until I saw this

And that there will never be another Toys R Us Kid …

I do know why I’m crying in the club.

Because they’ve all grown up.

Thanks for all the years of magic Toys R Us.
