The 70-year-old tale of Geoffrey the Giraffe is officially coming to an end as Toys "R" Us closes its last stores in the USA on Friday.

More than 700 Toys "R" Us stores are shuttering in the United States.

"Every Toys "R" Us worker is leaving with zero, and Bain Capital is leaving with $475 million in profits", said Forbes, citing a report by Bloomberg that the private-equity owners - KKR (KKR), Bain Capital and Vornado Realty Trust (VNO) - had collected more than $470 million in fees and interest payments from Toys "R" Us during the past few years.

In 1965, Geoffrey the giraffe became the company's mascot, appearing in his first TV commercial in 1973.

The chain is closing its doors after filing for bankruptcy last September.

In the UK, Toys R Us shut its final locations in April, but watching the animal waving goodbye really marks an end of an era.

Jacob Rabon IV tweeted two of the photos with the caption: 'I can't believe childhood is cancelled'.

Toys R Us, which also owned Babies R Us, collapsed in February after they were unable to pay a £15million tax bill.
