Toys ‘R’ Us Just Filed For Bankruptcy, And Our Childhoods Are Officially Dead

By Mustafa Gatollari

If you look back fondly at the days of racing through the aisles of Toys 'R' Us, begging your mom or dad to buy you anything and everything in the store, then you're probably going to want to stop reading.

That's because the once powerful retail giant and purveyor of everything fun officially filed for bankruptcy.

Toys 'R' Us insists that that its 1,600 stores all over the world are still going to operate, despite the news. The bankruptcy is a move for the retailer to restructure its debt, and hopefully they'll be able to pull themselves out of the financial hole they're in, but whenever you hear the word "b-word" in business, it's usually not a good sign.
