Many people are getting nostalgic as they return to shop at Toys R Us for one last time. By the 1980s and early 90s, Toys R Us dominated the toy-store business and its jingle, "I'm a Toys R Us kid" became an anthem for children across the country.

The head of the company that created Bratz dolls and Little Tikes sees a future Toys "R" Us that lives on past the company's expected liquidation. The move jeopardizes more than 30,000 jobs.

"It's contagious, it's a great environment, it's fun to come to work", says Sherry Stone, manager at the Cotswold Village location of Toys & Co.

Toys R Us says on its customer frequently-asked-question page that it expects all 735 of its United States stores to begin sales Friday.

"There have been many sad moments for Toys " R " Us in recent weeks, and none more heartbreaking than today's news about the passing of our beloved founder, Charles Lazarus, after a period of declining health", the company told Sky News.

"When it comes to a liquidation, go there sooner rather than later if you want a toy that's hot", said Fox Business anchor Nicole Petallides.

Toys R Us is struggling internationally, except in Asia.

There's been a lot of coverage, a lot of rumour and a lot of misdirection as the Toys R Us saga has unfolded, and James Zahn, via Toyworld Mag, delves into the various elements of the collapse. "His face lit up when he watched kids playing with toys".

The iconic toy giant kicked off its liquidation sale after announcing it will shut or sell all of its 735 stores.

Poisoned Russian spy 'sought pardon from Putin'
Investigators are removing the bench where poisoned former Russian double-agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter were found.

Its demise is partially to blame on competition from online shopping and other big box stores with sections dedicated to toys. It sought bankruptcy protection in the U.S. and Canada previous year.

Lazarus died March 15 in Manhattan, Michael Goldstein, a close friend who was the company's former chairman, said in a phone interview.

As much as anyone, he transformed the toy business from Christmas-focused to year-round.
