Toys“R”Us is returning to Times Square

Written by

The toys are back in town!

Two years ago, the giant Toys“R”Us in Times Square—the one that housed an entire working ferris wheel—vacated their storefront. But the company just announced the store will be making its grand return, albeit temporarily. 

A 35,000-square-foot store is coming back to 42nd street at 1466 Broadway this month (ahem, ahead of holiday shopping)! The store will have three levels of toys and a play area for kids (or kids at heart). There will be LEGOs, Star Wars figurines, Nintendo Switches, neon NERF footballs and most other things your youthful heart desires, but there will also be an animatronic dinosaur on level two. Hell yeah! Now bring back that ferris wheel!

And make the most of your trip to Times Square while you're at it: Check out the best places to eat and drink in the center of this shrine to capitalism.
