"Thanks to each of you who shared your incredible journey to (and through) parenthood with us, and to every grandparent, aunt, uncle, brother and sister who's built a couch-cushion rocket ship, made up a hero adventure, or invented something gooey". Storch came to the company when it was in the midst of a debt-laden privatization deal in 2005, and left it in 2013, with $1 billion in revenue (pre-tax).

"The company's operations outside of the US and Canada, including its operations in Europe and Australia and its approximately 255 licensed stores and joint venture partnership in Asia, which are separate entities, are not part of the Chapter 11 filing", a spokesperson said, according to Newsweek.

However, according to Newsweek, Toys R Us will continue to operate stores outside of the United States and Canada.

The toy store chain announced in March they would be closing down and the few remaining stores are closing for good this week.

Toys R Us filed for Chapter 11 reorganization last fall and pledged to stay open, but had poor sales during the critical holiday season as customers and vendors shied away. An auction for the company's name, baby shower registry and various trademarks is set for late July.

'It was the best job I had.

Jacob Rabon IV tweeted two of the photos with the caption: 'I can't believe childhood is cancelled'.
