As the local Toys R Us moves toward its April closure, Beanstalk Toys and Books hopes to be the “little toy store that could” right in downtown Highland Park.

The Highland Park Toys R Us Location has already started its liquidation process.

Beanstalk owner Pam Hillman bought the store eight years ago and runs it with her daughter Alyson Hillman Pedowitz. When she’s ready to retire, Hillman says hopes to pass the store on to her daughter and then hopes one of her grandchildren will want it when her daughter is ready to retire.
