Our Farewell to Toys ‘R’ Us

For 70 years, Toys ‘R’ Us was not just a chain of stores – it was a way of life. In this video, Andrea and Matthew talk about the closing of Toys ‘R’ Us, its downfall and final days, talk about our final trip to the store, what we will miss most about this extinct franchise, and say goodbye to one of our favorite places. It was a tough video for us to make and we held back a lot of emotions that all came out after the cameras were turned off, but if you are anything like us, you probably have some very strong feelings about this store going out of business too. Post your favorite memories about TRU in the comments below, and help us remember the best times about this place – and most of all, remind ourselves that we don’t have to grow up to forever be Toys ‘R’ Us Kids.
