R I P Charles Lazarus

1000x-1

It has been a tough few weeks for Toys R Us and sadly things just got a lot worse, with all their remaining stores due to close down, it was just announced that their founder Charles Lazarus has passed away. This is truly the end of an era and it really saddens me, In a statement the company had this to say:

There have been many sad moments for Toys“R”Us in recent weeks, and none more heartbreaking than today’s news about the passing of our beloved founder, Charles Lazarus, after a period of declining health. He visited us in New Jersey just last year and we will forever be grateful for his positive energy, passion for the customer and love for children everywhere. Our thoughts and prayers are with Charles’ family and loved ones.

For me I cannot help but thanks the man that made sure I got my Rocksteady and Bebop, my Dragonzord and of course my Bruticus, just a few of my most famous Toys growing up.

So on a personal note, Thank you Charles you helped make a lot of kids lives a little more magical.
