A heartbreaking photo of the beloved character standing amidst empty shelves with a bright green roller bag has gone viral on social media as former Toys "R" Us kids - a lot of them now adults - mourn the demise of the toy kingdom.
The photo shows the giraffe in an empty Toys "R" Us, holding a suitcase and waving goodbye. What we found was a manager who didn't want us filming, no Geoffrey, and a pretty good sale on a small selection of toys. Employees at the Boynton Beach, Florida, store made their frustrations known by hanging signs around the store and protesting outside, WPTV reported.
In the less than two days since Johnpiere posted the image on Facebook, it has been shared almost 300,000 times.

Toys R Us is no longer a thing. Whether this leads to a relaunched store is anyone's guess, but the brand as a whole isn't dead regardless, as the division of Toys "R" Us in Canada is still open for business.
The toy store chain announced in March they would be closing down and the few remaining stores are closing for good this week.
Tracey Mobley, who worked at Toys R Us for 25 years, said not providing severance to employees was "heartbreaking", during an interview with WPTV.
Jacob Rabon IV tweeted two of the photos with the caption: 'I can't believe childhood is cancelled'. "What we're asking is that the executives at Toys "R" Us would allow us to be the stewards of Geoffrey, their mascot, as a way for us to raise awareness for giraffe conservation".
