Toys that no longer inspire dreams... " La Grande Récré in suspension of payments, nth  victim of Amazonwas the headline in the press at the beginning of March 2018, sounding the alarm; a few months earlier, the American giant Toys "R "Us which had declared bankruptcy, followed by English Maplin.

With a snap of his fingers, Eliott closed his tablet, feeling weary: Kevin's birthday was coming up and he really didn't know what to buy him; after looking at all the main websites, he couldn't make up his mind.

No choice...

Until a few years ago, he used to look forward to strolling through the shops in shopping malls; he'd spend long moments chatting to the shop assistants... before buying on Amazon, because it was cheaper! But he would never have ordered directly without having felt the cuddly toys and other paraphernalia in shop.

Then La Grande Récré, Toys "R "Us and others Maplin had disappeared and Amazon had opened its first fully-automated physical shops, with extremely attentive robots guiding customers around the premises with formidable efficiency: customers never left empty-handed.

The websites of Alibaba and all those new African outsiders who were beginning to make their mark were full of interesting and completely different toys... but it was impossible to order them, as customs systematically blocked them because they didn't meet the new Japanese-American-European safety standards - the new NAE!

Eliott began to miss the days when he used to waste long hours wandering between the rays of the sun. La Grande Récré or Toys "R "Usand then repenting for having ordered the toys that had made him dream on the Web rather than buying them in shop!
