Goodbye BRU-KRU-TRU

The biggest toy store and its ever iconic Geoffrey Giraffe mascot along with their company jingle shall be greatly missed.

    Was many years ago, but I remember the closest R'Us to me had a TG-16 and a Jaguar on the shelf for what seemed like five years longer than they should have been being sold, ha.
    Missed an opportunity there...

    I bought my first Atari 5200 at a Toys R' Us in the 80s. Returned a broken one for an new one 6 months later. I tried to return the 2nd broken one another 4-6 months later but without success.
