Babies and Beyond
Toys “R” Us has roots dating back to 1948, at a baby furniture store in Washington, DC, which evolved to carry items for the kids as they grew older. The mascot, Geoffrey the Giraffe, has been around since the 1960s. Toys “R” Us opened its first Canadian location in 1984 and has been a fixture of residential communities across the country. The stores within each store include Babies “R” Us, the learning-oriented Imaginarium and the videogames and systems inside the “R” Zone. The stores match any advertised price from a competitor and have a 45-day return policy. Popular toys are featured in a flyer of weekly specials and new items are regularly added to the clearance section.
All the Names Grown-Ups Know
Dolls, stuffed animals and trains are among the items that never go out of style, giving adults the opportunity to renew their relationship with the toys that they remember from childhood. Barbie, Hot Wheels, Lego, Matchbox, Play-Doh and Sesame Street are a few of the familiar lines constantly being renewed with new perspectives on old favourites. Fisher-Price, Hasbro and Playskool are among those trademarks of quality that kids recognize from the earliest age.
