RIP, TRU. Toys R Us Times Square Closing in December

What will Times Square be without the ferris wheel?

What will Times Square be without the ferris wheel?

Sad news, Geoffrey fans. Cnn reports that the legendary Times Square Toys R Us closes at the end of the year. I find it hard to believe the location wasn’t making money because it was always packed, but I guess the giant T-Rex doesn’t draw as much as he used to.

I know we’ll have to get at least one more trip to NYC just to ride the wheel. The kids try to time their place in line to get Mr. Potato Head or the Hot Wheels car because they can’t stand the shame of…The Fisher Price Little People.

Will you miss the Times Square TRU? Please share your thoughts in the comments.

      Thanks for sharing, Erik. I also wonder if TRU and FAO might move into a shared space since TRU owns FAO.

    I personally won’t miss it. I’m pretty sentimental, so the idea of it being gone is a little sad, but in reality, we never went in there. It’s too busy, I just try to get away from that area as much as possible.
