    Red face Toys R Us plans second act by holiday season

    It's somber news in my house that Toys R Us is going out of business and closing all of their stores. When I was a kid that was where I used to drool over all the new Lionel train sets and accessories. (I could never afford them too.) Just going there and looking at all of the new toys from floor to ceiling was a real treat for my brother and me that my parents rewarded us with when we were good. My wife and I do the exact same thing with our son when he's good.


    Sadly, those days are now officially over. Somehow, gathering around the computer to look at toys for sale online doesn't seem like much of a reward for my son but I guess that that will have to do now. It flat out stinks to be a kid today!


    I vividly remember this commercial that used to air during Christmas season:





    It just wasn't the Christmas season until that was playing on Bay Area airwaves. In case anyone is too young to remember, the giraffes were Geoffrey, Gigi, and Baby Gee.


    I feel sorry for my son because I can't think of too much that is better about being a kid now compared to when I was his age.

    It’s been talked about for months. Not in expected. Changing demands and the web have destroyed them. Kids are more interested in computer gadgets and games
