Toys ‘R’ Us plotting return one year after going out of business


Geoffrey the giraffe is coming back if a new company can resurrect Toys ‘R’ Us.

The new company, called Tru Kids, Inc., said on Monday that it has taken over the parent company of several Toys ‘R’ Us brands, including Babies ‘R’ Us, and are planning to relaunch the iconic toy seller.

CNBC said that several former Toys ‘R’ Us executives are running Tru Kids, Inc.
