Toys R Us Westheimer Rd. Houston Texas

Here is a brief article about one of the Houston area Toys R Us locations. More surprising new posts are coming soon, research always takes too much time! Stay tuned.

Toys R Us Westheimer Rd is a regular Toys R Us/Babies R Us combo store. These images were taken the weekend prior to the announcement of the liquidation of the chain.

I am guessing this was an area to test out drones. 

TRU exclusive board games.

Lots of TRU in the center of this photo.

Gotta love the Nintendo Switch advertisements.

Video game cases

This image shows how massive of a game selection this particular Toys R Us had.

Remote controlled cars and video games. As a kid this would have been an awesome part of the store to see.

Fast Lane is a generic looking brand that had a lot of TRU exclusive merchandise.

A handy measuring card to see what size bike you would need.

Getting to pick out one of these cards would have been a dream come true as a kid. I remember the feeling of picking out a video game like this.

Babies R Us, this is a part of the store that I did not spend much time in over the years. The prices here were almost always higher than at other stores. 

Back to the Toys R Us side.

The end cap displays are cool especially the Lego one.

Another look at the Babies R Us entrance.

Now for the outside of the store. 

It is strange how lights always seem to burn out when a company goes into bankruptcy.
