Toys R Us: A fantastic place for children & adults alike to browse the aisles & buy lots of toys!

Advantages: Great choice, huge store, lots of items out on display to play with, helpful staff.
Disadvantages: Can be noisy and quite busy at times.
Some aspects of my review may be based on the store in Harlow, Essex.
Our Toys R Us is gigantic (as are most I have visited) and is so vastly stocked with almost every make of toy you can think of. There are aisles and aisles of bikes, books, consoles, games, board games, teddies, trikes, cots, prams, trampolines etc.
They really do seem to stock everything that you or your children could ever want or 'need' toy wise and they also have a section in our called 'Babies R Us' which I will mention more of later.
I could spend hours in this store browsing for the perfect gift and it is always extremely well stocked with lots of regular offers posted all around the store. I have 7 nieces & nephews at present so a trip to Toys R Us can end up being quite expensive with the various birthdays throughout the year and Christmas of course.
One of the great aspects of this store is that they have bikes, trikes, ride on toys etc on display and some of these can be used by the children so it's quite common to see a little one riding past with a parent chasing after them and it's great to see which toys your children will actually really like given the option.
They have a wide range of outdoor toys such as slides, swing sets & trampolines and quite a few of these are built and on display too so you can check out sizes and features of each item before deciding any purchases that you want to make.
They really do have some fantastic items on offer at any one time and these offers seem to increase around peak holiday times of the year such as summer holidays etc and it's really good to be able to go and pick up some bargains for the children.
I always find the staff to be very curteous and helpful and they seem to know where pretty much everything is instantly which is amazing considering the sheer size of the store and the amount of toys that they must stock.
Babies R Us is a fantastic section too selling toys, teddies, cots, cribs, mobiles, prams and pretty much anything else that you might need for your new arrival and whilst some of these items may be a little overpriced I find the pricing to be generally quite good and it's probably great for a lot of parents to be able to visit and pick up pretty much everything in just one store.
The queues at the checkout can get 2 or 3 people deep but I never find this a problem as it moves fast enough and the kids are normally kept occupied by things on display or knowing that they're getting a present once they leave the store.
The store is always clean & tidy (with the exception of random bikes and trikes dropped around the store of course!) and it really is no chore to visit this store and find the perfect presents for my nieces or nephews.
I would highly recommend a visit to Toys R Us or Babies R Us as they are just fantastic stores with lots to offer and it's great for the kids to be able to try out things before you have to part with your hard earned cash. I am rating the store 4/5 and have knocked off 1 star because it can be quite busy at times and even though it's massive all of the noise seems to congregate in certain areas.
Summary: A great store to browse, play with & purchase toys & games.
