I don’t wanna grow up, I’m a Toys R Us kid….

Sad news recently with the world wide franchise known as Toys R Us, they will be closing all of their stores in the U.S., U.K., and Canada within the upcoming weeks.




It is not known yet if the toy store chain will close its doors in Asia yet.

Toys R Us

Perhaps Toys R Us is not as famous in Japan as it is in the USA, but I grew up with it since my childhood.  The first store in Hawaii opened up fairly late, back in 1990.  However it will not make it to its 30th anniversary.

TRU closing




So long and thank you for all the great memories.  Hopefully they will still be strong in Japan!  Only time will tell.
