Imitation Toys "R" Us Display at Kroger
When I saw the imitation Toys "R" Us display at Kroger I thought it was
a bit odd. It was as if Kroger was trying to promote a defunct business.
After Toys "R" Us closed down I wasn't surprised, because the store had
lost its flavor. During the last years that Toys "R" Us was open I saw more
open space and non-toys than toys, and many of the products they had
were overpriced, or low-quality toys that didn't hold up well.
When I was a child, Toys "R" Us was the place to be. They had everything:
Beautiful Barbies, cake and fudge mix refills for my Easy-Bake Oven, and
a lot of toys. Toys were everywhere and every aisle was exciting.
If Toys "R" Us had focused on quality products and toys for children I bet
the store would still be thriving, because kids didn't change Toys "R" Us
