Truth is Biased
While I was not fortunate enough to have a KB Toys at either end of the mall my mother and I frequented, it was the highlight of my visits to the mall. How can you walk past the flipping puppy or crawling solider tied to the sign in front of the store? Who can resist searching though 3 isles of toys so tightly packed together that even the store clerks cannot tell you where the new Luke Skywalker action figure with the lightsaber slashing action is? Or searching the bargain bin of Atari 2600 games looking for the last remaining copy of Football in existence? KB Toys... you will be missed. RIP
Dude, I always wondered why you had the coolest toys that I had never seen before! While you found a way to make your money work for you, I'd stand in front of the Gi Joe's wishing I had enough to buy one and therefore left the store empty handed. KB Toys was cool because it was a real toy store, and it could be found in nearly every mall, unlike Toys R Us which you had to make a special trip to. Price's be damned...too bad it's what killed them in the end.
