Toys R Us posted a touching final message on its last day of business.

Toys "R" Us mascot Geoffrey the Giraffe has packed up his suitcase - presumably full of toys - and left his toy kingdom for good. Promise us just this one thing: Don't ever grow up.

"It's sad. A lot of kids are really probably shopping online Amazon a place like that, but there's something special about going to a store like Toys "R" Us", said Dale Shough, a customer.

The toy store chain announced in March they would be closing down and the few remaining stores are closing for good this week. And we will smile with invisible tears because a heart is touched with a strong word and you will say: "'It was with them that I had some of the best days of my life"'.

People have turned to social media to express their sadness. "I love, I mean, Babies R Us and Toys R Us".

Party City said on Monday it will open about 50 pop-up toy stores this year along with its Halloween City pop-up shops in locations that present "attractive leasing opportunities", CEO James Harrison said. I was surrounded by children'.
