I'm sure you've heard by now that the Toys R Us Company is closing down for good. This is really sad news to so many around the country-and world. I remember growing up in the 80's and hearing that all to familiar jingle on television: "I don't want to grow up, I'm a Toys R Us kid.." Yeah, we all know it! I remember what a treat it actually was to drive into town and go to the big toy store, and even more of a treat when I was allowed to actually get something!
Over the years as I became an adult, I didn't feel the need to visit Toys R Us that often, but when I became pregnant, I started a relationship with their counterpart store, Babies R Us. I absolutely loved going in and shopping for all of the baby stuff! There were so many things to look at, I didn't know where to begin!
I loved shopping for all of the little outfits for Sara, and the Koala Kids brand that they carry is the best! They even have the boutique for fine and unique outfits for special occasions. They also have Disney, Carters, Osh Kosh, and so many other great brands! Much of Sara's wardrobe has come from Babies R Us.
We also got her nursery furniture set there. The nursery displays were just beautiful! And the staff was so helpful in getting everything squared away for us for shipping and delivery.
My registry was through Babies R Us, and they had a great program where you got a percentage of what was spent back on a gift card to use later, and I totally did! I also signed up to their Rewards Program, because since Sara was born, we have made a stop at least once a month to pick up supplies and get her a toy or three! Speaking of supplies...most of our everyday items from her diaper pail to her potty chair, and so much more have come from Babies R Us.
Now that Sara's a toddler, she loves going to the store and running around, checking everything out! She loves the rocking chairs, the little toddler beds, and of course, the toys! She always gets a new surprise when we visit.
