Toys “R” Us Times Square offers a huge-scale 110,000 square feet store that covers several floors. If visitors are on a budget, or simply want to offer their kids an awesome experience, they can easily while away a good few hours at the shop, enjoying the many attractions, including the Ferris wheel that kids adore so much. But be warned: with so many great levels of toys and entertainment, one cannot help but purchase some of the superb things on offer.
The Ferris wheel is boarded at the basement of the store (after entering from the first floor) and takes visitors 60 feet up to get an overall view of what the store has to offer, including a look at several of its departments. The 14 cars on the wheel represent different themes such as Sesame Street, etc.
One of the most popular attractions of Toys “R” Us is undoubtedly the huge 5-ton, 20-feet high and 34-feet long T-Rex from Jurassic Park that sometimes roars at visitors. This free life-like feature attracts young and old to the store.
Little girls can enjoy a wonderful fantasy world of Barbie by visiting the two giant floors (4000 square feet!) of dolls, accessories, clothes and toys dedicated to this star. There is nothing connected to this famous doll in the latest fashions that cannot be found in Toys “R” Us Times Square.
For non-stop fun, visitors can try the famous “R” Zone – a 5,500 square feet area that is dedicated to the latest multimedia technology – including CDs, DVDs and electronic games. Visitors can find practically everything they are looking for in this line of product and can also try them out on the huge plasma screens in this section of the store before purchasing them.
The “Filled with Love” section of Toys “R” Us Times Square is a firm favorite with those who love their stuffed little friends. Here visitors can create their own huggables completely from scratch, stuffing them with material and ending up with a delightful plush animal. They are even awarded an original, official ‘birth certificate’ for their creations. This activity presents hours of fun for all involved.
To take a break from a serious day of shopping, visitors can find some respite in the store’s excellent candy store, aptly named “The Candy Spot” for some delightful sweet stuff.
