On Friday, the toy chain closed the last of its around 800 us stores for good. Toys R Us' troubles have also shaken some big toy makers like Mattel and Hasbro.

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

People have turned to social media to express their sadness.

The liquidation of the largest United States toy retailer is a blow to hundreds of toy makers that sold products at the chain, including Barbie maker Mattel Inc, board game company Hasbro Inc and other large vendors such as Lego.

"I think Geoffrey the Giraffe signifies fun and childhood memories", a zoo representative told CBS San Antonio affiliate KENS.

Toys "R" Us chief executive officer Jerry Storch has been, "working with multiple investors on a plan to reboot the retailer in the USA, according to people familiar with the situation, who asked not to be identified because the talks are private".

Many kids grew up watching Geoffrey the Giraffe in TV commercials. The company 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.
