I’m pretty bummed that Toys “R” Us is closing its doors. My two older boys pretty much grew up in the store and will have lots of memories from our visits here.
But, my 21-month-old daughter, Maryam will have none. So, when the bankrupt toy chain announced it was shuttering all its U.S. stores, I thought I’d let her play in the store to her heart’s content and decided to capture it on camera.
We spent a good two hours, going from aisle to aisle in the store, while Maryam played with the toys. It filled my heart to see her amazed by all the toys she was actually allowed to touch and play with.
It breaks my heart to know that she will not grow up to be a Toys “R” Us kid.
At the end of it all, we left with some toys from this trip and memories caught on camera.
So here you have it… Maryam’s photo session at Toys “R” Us.
