Toys R Us

The Internet is having a hard time saying goodbye to Toys R Us.


It's words no millennial thought we'd ever have to hear in our lifetime: "Toys 'R' Us is shutting down."

Earlier this year, the big toy store announced its plans to close nearly 200 stores worldwide after filing for bankruptcy last fall.

The closures were part of the company's reorganization plans, but the world would soon learn it was just the beginning.

After reports came out that Toys "R" Us would be closing for good, big kids from around the world took to social media to mourn the loss of their favorite childhood store.

Most people are having a pretty hard time accepting that we'll one day have to explain to our kids what Toys "R" Us was, which, like, where does one even start!?

But if we gotta start somewhere... one guy likened the giant toy store to a Target that only sells toys.

Some noted it's not just the iconic store we're losing... who could forget about Geoffrey the Giraffe, the store's longtime mascot.

I snagged a selfie with Geoffrey at the Toys "R" Us in Times Square in New York, which, if you couldn't already tell, was a very emotional moment.

What do you think?
