One year ago, kids of all ages were heartbroken to find out that Toys "R" Us was closing its doors for good. Since then, there had been talks about the toy store coming back in some way, but now there is good news!

Toys "R" Us is planning on opening a handful of stores for the holiday season! The CEO of Tru Kids Inc. (who are the new owners of Toys "R" Us) announced that they will be opening a half of dozen stores in time for the holidays. While these stores won't be as big as the old ones were, it will still be great to see the toy stores around. There is no word on where the locations will be just yet, but we will keep you updated!

In case Toys "R" Us is not heading to the Garden State, we'll still be able to shop online. Wouldn't it be great if they brought back the Christmas catalogs? Flipping through those was a highlight of the Christmas season for me!
