Well, now you have to make your way past the latest sweaters from Ralph Lauren on your way to check out the new Marvel Universe offerings. That's better though, right parents?

The official Grand Opening Celebrations for Toys "R" Us inside Macy's locations nationally is happening Saturday, October 15 - Sunday, October 23, 2022. There are special events slated for each of the 9 days. You can find out more by clicking here.
