For us Toys R Us kids, it's a sad day in the retail world. If you're still holding a gift card from Toys R Us or Babies R Us, here's how to handle those gift cards and/or registries.

The toy experience at Toys R Us and Babies R Us is soon to become a thing of the past. After 70 years of being in business, all their storefront stores will close. According to, a story on dated March 15, states that you will have 30 days to use those Toys R Us gift cards.

For those of us concerned about Babies R Us gift cards and registries, you have less than two weeks to use their customer loyalty programs. That includes Rewards R Us, Geoffrey’s Birthday List and the Babies R Us registry.

It may be a few days or in a couple of weeks but the liquidation sales will start soon, and it's reported that the stores could close in as a little as two months.

So if you have plans to use either of the two retailers,make them soon!
