“Best TRU you'll see but not a must see unless with kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

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.

“Wow this store is awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

This store is amazing! It has a giant Barbie house. It has huge Lego sculptures of video game characters & famous land marks. However one of the coolest things about it is the ferris wheel.
You can see it from all the floors. :)

“An Adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

The largest and most exciting toy store in NYC located in the heart of Times Square. As if all the fanfare and excitement outside wasn't enough the adventure awaiting inside is awesome. Tons of hands on interactive stations and displays, all your favorite cartoon and toy land characters guarded by the life size dinosaur and Ferris Wheel are just the beginning! The toys of all shapes, sizes, interests and levels are stunning.

Before we knew it, we had been in the store for more than two hours and then another hour to check out! YES, while the the checkout counters are plentiful the crowds are generally triple that. This place is clearly addictive, candy, stuffed animals, electronics, bikes, cars and so much more in this toy jungle! Their flagship store so they really had to hit it over the top and they did. Another great NYC Icon, you must visit just for the experience!

The staff very young and playful for the most part are ready to help and assist with your every need.

“Childhood reminder”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

If there is still sleeping kid in your soul and you want to wake him/her up enter this store. You do note have to pay for anything and, moreover, the space is not as overcrowded as it is on Times Square.
