Toys'R'Us is going bankrupt 😓. Why do you think this happened? I'll share my opinion below.
I think kids aren't playing with conventional toys anymore - a lot of electronics such as iPads and iPods. Kids aren't playing outside as much anymore. Kids don't ride bikes as much anymore; or rollerblade; etc. I also think there's too much competition - especially when it comes to convenience - such as Amazon.
Whatever the reason it's a sad day for me because I'm an 80s child and grew up thinking it was heaven. 😓
