As a family with a childish boy and a five year old (see what I did there?), we’re still in a bit of shock over the news that Toys ‘r’ Us is closing down. 

Back in March, I went to our local store and got a final pic taken with Geoffrey himself. 


Today, we took Nathan as it was announced that this would be Geoffrey’s last day in South Elgin. 


Like father, like son. 

Oh, and we did get a L’il Geoffrey for Nathan.

It’s true. They were warned... They are doomed... And on Friday the 13th, nothing will save them. Or us, for that matter.

If you follow my Instagram account, you may have seen this... Basically, my Fitbit has been showing pixel burnout across the screen. In the above photo, it’s just a few rows. Several more have shown up in the last week....

So cool you and Nathan got pics with Geoffrey. I'm sad about the closing of this final retail toy store (I guess Hammond's is still in some places).


Not familiar with Hammond’s at all.

Oh, I see why... it's only in Utah. I thought they had locations nationwide.


Their website makes me want to gouge out my eyes.
