ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — With somewhat less fanfare than the shuttering of Toys R Us, one more toy store has closed its doors.
For 30 years, Out of the Blue Toys was a staple in the Albuquerque market as a store devoted to items designed to get children to play and think and learn all at the same time.
But that three-decade run is over.
