THE threatened closure of Toys R Us has been linked by parents to it being easily the most expensive place to shop in the whole of the UK.
The toy retailer, which is unable to pay £9 million into its pension fund despite that being the cost of a single Lego set, is regularly visited by families consisting of manic children and horrified parents.
Father Tom Booker said: “I’ve taken the kids around museum exhibitions of priceless ancient jewellery that were more affordable than Toys R Us, and had more staff on the tills at the end.
“It’s not one of those where you look around then buy off the internet. You look around then go home and start whittling toys out of wood because you assume you will never be able to afford them, even if you became a trillionaire.
“Also its name is stupid.”
A Toys R Us spokesman said: “We can’t go letting people take away our toys. They’re our toys.”
