Toys R Us statistics store count facts 2023Toys “R” Us is a former American toy and baby products retail company. It was founded in 1948 by Charles P. Lazarus and was headquartered in Wayne, New Jersey. Toys “R” Us operated a chain of retail stores that sold toys, video games, dolls, action figures, and other children’s products. The company also had a presence in several international markets.

Toys “R” Us was one of the largest toy retailers in the world, with more than 800 stores in the United States and a presence in more than 30 countries. The company was known for its wide selection of toys and its iconic jingle, “I don’t wanna grow up, I’m a Toys “R” Us kid”.

In 2017, Toys “R” Us filed for bankruptcy amid growing competition from online retailers such as Amazon. The company subsequently announced plans to close all of its U.S. stores and liquidate its assets. While the company’s international operations were sold to various companies, Toys “R” Us ultimately closed all of its stores and ceased operations in the United States in 2018. However, the brand has since been revived and has launched an e-commerce website and several small stores in select locations.

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these Toys R Us statistics come from their own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
