Toys Were Us

Companies in the toy industry have followed a pattern where they expand rapidly. The stores then implode. I created this page to display the merger chain of Kay-Bee Toys and Toys-R-Us.

NOTE a company called Strategic Marks LLC owns the KB Toys brand. They create "pop up" stores which appear then liquidate. A firm called Tru Kids Brands ( owns the Toys "R" Us and Babies "R" Us brands in the United States. Toys "R" Us Canada is now an independent chain.

In this video company discusses the decline of the store.
