It was a store filled with toys, video games, dolls, action figures and more. It was the reward that parents offered. “If you’re good, I’ll take you to Toys R Us.” It was the place where Barbie had her own pink aisle and super heroes had theirs. You could jump rope, play with Legos, ride a bike, hug a teddy bear, rock a baby doll, make believe, discover, explore, and laugh. It was truly… where a kid could be a kid. Adults found themselves remembering their childhoods as an iconic toy would catch their eye. It was where it truly made sense to say, “I don’t want to grow up.”
Brook celebrated her Third Birthday in the store where her father worked. Geoffrey the Giraffe walked her down the aisles and for a bittersweet moment, this photographer captured a little girl playing in a Toy Store for the last time.
