Toys "R" Us pop-up store on Jay Street in Downtown Brooklyn the other day, just because it's been a long time since we've been in a Toys "R" Us.
Wow, that store is just sad. They never painted the dingy walls after Sids Hardware moved out. The toys seem a bit worse than you would expect, even in a Toys "R" Us pop-up -- Hannah Montana branded plastic stuff, the least-glamorous Barbies we've ever seen. (The Nerf guns were good, however. Nerf guns are always good.)
Above: McDonalds fast food counter toys -- now your kids can put on the McDonalds hat and practice slinging burgers and fries like a real McDonalds worker! If you buy both sets your child can set up a McDonald's grill, fryer and soda machine at home -- plus a golden arches counter and a drive-thru intercom. And yes, the cash register "really rings."
What a wonderful way to prepare your child for his or her future career!
