    I love Hello Kitty! I didn't know Toys R Us sold that; good to know and thank you!

    These are quite a few great tidbits of info for those of us with kids/returning to school. Nice job, Renee. :-)

    I had previously bought a backpack and lunch tote at full price. Now I can return them and get the deal at Toys R Us. Thanks, Renee!
