Photos of Geoffrey the Giraffe leaving an empty Toys R Us store are utterly heart-breaking
Sadness in his eyes
Earlier this year, Toys R Us went into administration.
The UK branches of the iconic toy store have already closed, after massive fire sales, and on Friday the final US stores close their doors for good.
And now these tragic, heart-breaking images of the chain's mascot, Geoffrey The Giraffe, surrounded by empty shelves and waving goodbye, are spreading through social media.

Toys 'R Us has closed down and if Geoffrey The Giraffe with his little suitcase leaving the empty store and the idea that we have all grown up and left childhood behind doesn't bring a tear to your eye then I can't help you pic.twitter.com/YSCxsvEhxo

I guess everyone has grown up. There are no more Toys R Us kids.
In case you need reminding, here is Geoffrey in happier times.
Doesn't your heart just break?
