Memories of Toys R Us

April 6, 2018

Like most kids who played hard during the 70's, I know the Toys R Us jingle by heart ... you

 

know the one about being a "Toys R Us  Kid", right?  And then there was always Geoffrey the Giraffe.  Who would have thought back then that Toys R Us would be going away?  Taking my daughters there when they were little is a memory we all share.  I even took one of my grandson's there -- it was multi-generational for us.

I've been asked by friends, family and a magazine or two for my thoughts on their closure.  While it saddens me based on my great memories, I have come to believe that the small, independent retailer has always been the place where you could actually experience play.  Toys R Us was this awesome place where there were always more toys than you could imagine.  You didn't really play there though ... you just looked up a lot.
  
We are learning every day that play is critical to a child's development.  The experience that play provides creates the foundation for their future.  Whimzy is proud to be your neighborhood toy store.  We will continue to be here.  We work hard to create fun events and an environment where you and your kids can come, have fun and experience play together. 

Remember ... fun is magic.  Let's create some together soon!  😃
