Kb Toys, never liked going, I'd stop in if my wife made me go the mall, but would never buy anything too overpriced.
Didn't like Kittyworld, but went when the Xmen figures were popular in 90's.
I don't like Toys R Us either, I worked there, and it was fine for my first job. But it almost seems like a choir to go there now. ONLY reason I go is because of the exclusives, which I hope they don't do anymore, and have Wal MArt or Target pick up the 3/5 packs.

i for one am glad kb is gone. they were always over priced, never had anything decent in stock and had hella rude employees and they stores always looked messy and un kempt. i say good riddance to bad rubbish.

Meh, most of the KBs I knew of have been closed for years and those that remained opened looked like big lots with triple the prices.

We never had KB Toys in Canada
but anytime I would visit my relatives in NY I was always there
and I was even there over Thanksgiving, unfort. they didnt have too much.
Its sad to see a piece of your childhood basically erased.

I won't really miss them, because I have bought almost nothing there in the past 5 years, but it is sad to see them go, just like Child World, Woolworth, Caldor, Bradlees, Super X drug, and Circus World, all of which provided me with loads of great toys as a kid.
(And I too remember the Dock Bradlees, as well as the one by the Fairfield/Bridgeport border that was closer to me.)

It's in the news. KB Toys filed for bankruptcy today. Haven't bought any Joes there in a long time although I picked up a Shark Tatoo Shipwreck over there and some of my wave 1 Joes. I guess this economy is shrinking day to day.
