Saudi Arabia, ToysRUs

The Arabic side of the sign

I saw the familiar logo in Arabic first. Then to the left I saw the confirmation in English. Curious, I wandered the store and found many of the same brands as I would find in the USA. And the games were in English. I looked through the Barbie section, no Barbie doll. There was plenty of name brand logo, but no actual doll – censorship? I found wrestling figures but not guns, weapons or other such implements of mayhem. I am told that you can get them. I saw plenty of the real-thing up close elsewhere. Censorship is all around. There are no movie theaters – none.
