Re: Australia Sees Potential
In total agreement with you. The way they come up with options like 'Eascy Click' etc, all that is needed is 'Click and Buy'. You are so right, amazon is aking us all lazy. We all eventually get glued to the same process and then don't feel like getting up and go to stores. I am sure very soon we may hear about counter effects of easy one click buying from consumers - health impacts.

Re: Australia Sees Potential
@srufolo1:

I read something similar somewhere in the internet. Kids surely will miss that whole experience. I remember pretty well, for my son at that age going to ToysRUs use to be a hue and precious thing and am sure for many more. My fear is that kids may lose that kind of toy buying experience in coming days completely based on what we see going on with all click and buy kind of culture.

Re: Australia Sees Potential
@DHagar Well, I wish that person well with that! Sadly, before they reach that goal, if ever, it will be too late, unless he wants to open up his own toy stores.

Re: Australia Sees Potential
@srufolo1, the sad thing is that we are not replacing it with anything equal or better than that. 

I note there is a loyal fan that is trying to raise $1 billion on FundMe crowd funding.

Re: Australia Sees Potential
@DHagar Yes, especially with toys, part of the experience was to play with them, like sometimes at Toys 'R Us they would have some of the toys out on display that could be played with, and kids could touch and see them. It was a fun environment. As the saying goes, "all good things must come to an end."

Re: Australia Sees Potential
@srufolo1, exactly!  And the reality of the physical experience of playing with toys, selecting toys, purchasing, etc., will just become another virtual transaction.

So glad I grew up in a different world!

Re: Australia Sees Potential
@DHagar Amazon will no doubt purchase all of Toys 'R Us' inventory, where it can now be purchased at its site. I just feel bad for the Toys 'R Us businesses that have been around so long. They've fallen victim, as Blockbuster did, to technology.

Re: Australia Sees Potential
@srufolo1, exactly!  At least they are shaping the world in the Amazon Prime Way!

Actually, they are looking to purchase the real-estate from the Toys-R-Us graveyard - obviously to turn those into extended Amazon customer delivery sites!

But the advantage becomes Amazon and diminishes the entrepreneurial opportunities for full economic development.  So they may be making the right moves?

Re: Australia Sees Potential
@elizabethv  What I hate so much to admit is that Amazon makes things so darn convenient for people. Need a gift? Go to Amazon where you can pick out what you want and have it wrapped and delivered. Groceries? No problem. Order them at Amazon and have them delivered. I believe Amazon is creating a world of lazy people!

Re: Australia Sees Potential
@elizabethv Was just looking at an article that stated Amazon is actually responsible for Toys 'R Us demise. I didn't read the entire thing. Also, there was another article about some lawsuit Toys 'R Us had against Amazon. We live in a strange world. You may start to feel bad for the kids who won't have a toy store to go to anymore, but those kids mostly are online anyway playing games, etc..., so the thought of a brick-and-mortar store full of toys may seem foreign to them.
