    Bed Bath and Beyond has grabbed a chunk of that market share with Buy Buy Baby.

    The wife and I took the kids to the local toys rus Saturday because we had gift cards and we wanted to use them before “everything went belly up.”

    Well, if that company is struggling, it sure wasn’t that branch. Shelves stocked with toys, tons of people buying, staff everywhere. If you want to see a place that is struggling, go to a Kmart. If toys r us is failing, it’s because it must have a ton of debt it can’t pay off.

    First Tonka has to deal with tariffs over their line of steel vehicles and now they are gonna lose Toys R Us.

    They still make steel Tonkas? Been a while since I've gone to a toy store but remeber seeing all plastic shit from Tonka. Still have 4 or 5 steel Tonkas from the 70s.

    No wonder they're going under. Standard Monopoly game contains only $15,140.
