Let's be real: no matter how stylish your pint-sized pals may be, kids will still be kids (and man, are they expensive). While tiny Hermès kicks are cute and all, they're not exactly as wallet-friendly as a good old-fashioned toy—and next week, LA bargain shoppers (or big kids at heart) can stock up on classic faves at Toys 'R' Us's newest outlet store at Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza.
Opening Friday, May 13th, the 2,900-square-foot space offers the usual TRU stalwarts for kids of all ages (Barbie, Nerf, Star Wars, and more) and a dedicated LEGO shop. The store's hosting a family-friendly grand opening bash on opening day; events will include photo opps with Geoffrey the Giraffe, giveaways, discounts ($5 off purchases of $30 and up), and more.
