Holy cow - Times Square is really crowded. So unless you have kids to shop for, the TRU is NOT a must-see. It's a little run down. I saw clerks standing doing nothing while stuffed animals were strewn about on a Saturday evening. "hey, get to work."
It needs some cleaning up or painting as I noticed walls all banged up on staircase to Barbie World. I thought there would be more in Barbie world - it wasn't all that.
