Today we said goodbye to a place that makes memories special to my heart. Times are changing, and people just don’t bring their kids to hang out in a toy store anymore…
I remember so vividly all the times I went to this toy store as a child. It was a big event. My father took me in and we ran around laughing as I was soaring in a world full of awe and excitement. I made friends. I played. I was filled with wonder. And I came home with something so special to me. I wanted to make sure our son had that experience before the opportunity was gone.
We brought Buzz Lightyear to find his friends, and we did! We rode bikes. We played around. We made a memory.
It saddens me that specialty stores like Toys r Us are disappearing, but it is a reality. I encourage you to take your little ones there to give them that feeling you remember growing up before the stores close! In our Washington area, there are stores in Olympia, Tacoma, and Puyallup.
Go make a memory, and maybe… say goodbye yourself. ❤
We’ll miss you, #toysrus
