    Toys R Us United States

    The ToysRUs USA online website is no longer taking any purchase orders. You can still view many products on their site though. Toys R Us brick and mortar stores are still open for business and are holding liquidation sales. Earlier last month on March 15, Toys R Us announced they are going shutting down all of its U.S. and Puerto Rico operations.

    If you have Toys R Us gift cards, use them before April 21, 2018 as they will no longer be honored after this date. All U.S store locations are now having liquidation savings up to 30% off. Though, LEGO appears to be discounted at a much smaller rate. All sales are final. They are also currently hiring a lot of people to be staffed at their stores. These are temporary job openings.

    Update: We received a question regarding where you can see the size chart for US online purchases. You can click on the “size chart” when you are in the T-shirt product itself. There are different metric measurements available depending on the size of the shirt. Its not going to be as good as visiting a brick and mortar store where you can try it on. But for those that do not have a Uniqlo nearby, this sizing chart would probably be your best bet.  See image below.

    Uniqlo, a Japanese clothing retailer is now selling LEGO Graphic Short Sleeve T-Shirts. These LEGO clothing products are made to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the iconic LEGO Minifigure.

    For those living in America, adult shirts are priced at $14.90 each while boys shirts are priced at $9.90 each. Available in-stores and online. Flat $5 shipping or free shipping on orders above $75.

    For those living in Canada, they are priced at $19.90 each and are available for purchase in-stores only. They are also available at various worldwide Uniqlo locations as well. Pricing and availability can vary depending on your country and location.

    The LEGO Friends 30404 Friendship Flower polybag set was previously spotted for sale at Toys R Us Canada stores. If you live in America, the set has also been spotted at Wal-Mart USA stores. This would make a great Mother’s Day Gift! Thanks Nick for the news.

    Happy April Fools

    We hope you had a Happy Easter filled with lots of fun building. Yesterday was April 1st meaning it was April’s Fools day as well.

    We did consider closing the website in the past and it almost became a reality. But don’t worry, we’ve made the decision that Toys N Bricks is not going anywhere. We’re working on the new website whenever we have time so please stay tune. As always, thank you all for your continued support in us. (:

    We hope your Easter long weekend is going well! Remember that the Toysnbricks mini LEGO Star Wars contest is still on going. Use no more than 100 LEGO pieces and build a mini LEGO Star Wars spaceship/fighter to fight against the dark side. Contest closes on April 3, 2018.

    *Note that the contest is only open to existing forum members.

    The LEGO 5005358 Minifigure Factory Set contains 86 pieces. Here are some official images where you can get a closer look. It appears that you don’t get to build the “building”. However, you do get to build part of the factory. You also get one LEGO Factory minifigure along with five micro LEGO Minifigures as well. The retail value for this set is apparently $14.99 USD / $19.99 CAD. This is a pretty cute set and would probably be a great travel toy for the little ones! (:

    It is with sadness that we announce that will be shutting down. Many alternatives have been thought over and to determine whether to continue the site partially with articles every now and then, redevelop it or shut it down. It takes a tremendous amount of work and personal time to run this site. Its not an easy task. We have set very high expectations for ourselves where our commitment is to run a high quality site with high quality content. It is very depressing to look at how outdated and worn out the site is. Its like an urban decay.

    When the site was first started in 2009, we were very excited with everything that was related to LEGO. We looked for every single LEGO news item to share with the community and was never tired with looking for the various LEGO news, creations and sales. However, as the years went by, we just didn’t have the passion, momentum and drive to continue running it. Messages and questions were not being responded to and development has stopped. Many parts of the site is broken and falling apart. We were planning to start winding down operations in 2016 and eventually shut it down in 2017. As such, you may have noticed that the site was no longer maintained or kept to a standard like in the earlier years. Yet, we still kept the site without much maintenance.

    After a long and careful consideration, we have made a painfully difficult decision to just shut everything down. We’re heartbroken that it has to end this way.  The website will be taken offline in the next few weeks but our Facebook and Twitter pages will be up for a little bit longer.

    Thank you to everyone that has supported us over these past nine years including our loyal readers and forum members. You are all great and wonderful people and we’re confident that you will all do great things and contribute well to society. Work hard, stay true to your core ethical values, stay away from bad influences and protect yourself from troublemakers. Each of you can make an impact to positively change the world and make it a better place for the next generation. See you all another time! (:
