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.
In March, Toys "R" Us announced its plans to start liquidation nationwide.
Toys R Us, which also owned Babies R Us, collapsed in February after they were unable to pay a £15million tax bill.
In 1965, Geoffrey the giraffe became the company's mascot, appearing in his first TV commercial in 1973. This graduate school of pro wrestling is home to people who will be lighting up marquees for years to come, but now the doors are open to another person in need of a home. That employee went on to say, "It didn't happen all at this location".
"I think Geoffrey the Giraffe signifies fun and childhood memories", a zoo representative told CBS San Antonio affiliate KENS.
Five former Toys R Us executives, including former CEO David Brandon, shared $8.2 million in retention bonuses.
In addition to online platforms like Amazon.com Inc, analysts have pointed to Walmart Inc, Target Corp, JC Penney Co Inc, Kohls Corp and Bed Bath & Beyond as chains that could pick up market share from Toys "R" Us.
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.
