You would think that a toy shop would be one of the most parent (and child) friendly shops you could go into, wouldn't you? Sadly, that's not normally the case (although there are exceptions, ELC for example), and one of the worst of the offenders is ToysRUs, a huge, impersonal multi-national...

It's that time of year again, the first week of November, thoughts rapidly turning to Christmas and the rosy haze of chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Gran dropping off in front of the Queen's speech, and Mrs D devastating us all with her leathery and totally inedible turkey and sprout surprise...

Not for me

Loads of toys to choose from

The returns policy

Over the last couple of years, I have probably spent over £1000 pounds in Toys R Us. Every Christmas, we trawl for hours around the Leicester or Northampton store, in an attempt to find everything in one go. Birthday party invitations mean yet another trip, and our own children’s birthdays mean...

“Brings the kid out in you”

published 25/11/2001

good range of toys

cost?

This is a store that rolls back the years, makes you want to be young and in a way by going in that store for however long you go in the store you can be a kid again. Marvel at all the fantastic toys and chose one for your loved ones. However, there’s always a price to pay and a expensive...

“Toils r us”

published 19/10/2002

lots of choice, but that's about it

way too expensive and a nightmare to take kids to

As a mother of 3 children, all under the age of 11, a visit to Toys r Us with them is an absolute nightmare (for the parents, that is!). As soon as you enter the store in Liverpool city centre, the first thing that catches the eye of our kids is the vast array of sweets! Not just packets of...

“Hell on earth”

published 29/09/2001

Wide selection of toys

Too expensive, horrible for the kids

I used to love popping out to my local Toys R Us in Bristol but now I avoid it like the plague. The first thing you see when you walk through the door is shelves and shelves of sweets, try getting your kids past that, to start with! Then we have the piles of very expensive things like mobile...

You want to buy everything you see

It's not very often that I get to visit our local Toys R Us. Although it is in the town centre it's in the opposite direction to most of the other shops so I only really go there when I can't find what I'm after elsewhere. It was my sons first birthday a few months ago and having searched all...

Toys R Us must be the most well known Toy Shop bar Hamleys in London. It is a child's paradise to enter a shop which is just full of toys! The one in Edinburgh is situated at Fort Kinnaird on the east side of the city. You enter on the right hand side of the building and go through a tiny...

My daughter has already given me her xmas list. (what child hasn't I suppose). Included in this list was a Baby Annabell. At £37.99 I have been looking around to try and find the cheapest price. (always on the look out for a bargain). No luck. The cheapest I came across was £37.97 (ooh big...

extremely slow service

Well, it’s that time of the year again. You know, the one where you save up large amounts of cash, only to plough it all into one day – December 25th. This is usually when I make my annual trip to Toys R Us and this year is no exception. With mum-in-law accompanying me and £200...

“Not Just ToysRUs”

published 16/07/2001

Great selection...

...of overpriced, poor quality goods

You walk through the door and you are greeted by the sound of the tannoy machine which absolutely no-one can understand. You venture deeper in to the store, and decide to explore. And you have ventured in, you are trapped, you can not escape... Your mind is overwhelmed by all the toys that they...

“Utopia”

published 17/04/2001

All under one roof

Usually based out of town

Aching feet, battered ankles, and a continuous dull thud between the eyes. Are the all too familiar symptoms that gradually creeps up on anyone who sets out for a few hours of meaningful shopping. No l don’t mean the shopping that you have to do for the forever hungry household. Although...

I went into ToysRUs and decided to look around at the heavily touted BabiesRUs section. I had already been to Boots and Mothercare so I knew what the prices were on things that were on our to get list, and I looked forward to comparing those prices with this store. Surprise! They were NOT cheaper...

I have a large family, lots of children aged 14 to 3 - 7 to be precise. I decided that after a successful honeymoon period shopping for food on-line that I would do as much of my Christmas shopping on-line. Its easy peasy as the kids say. Just click on the site, done, look for the products, not...
