  • Did The Simpsons predict the closure of Toys R Us

Given the recent events surrounding Toys "R" Us, Basic Fun! is already seeing many smaller and mid-cap toy companies looking to them for a solution, and the company believes they can offer a great opportunity for many.

The unsolicited bid faces a number of hurdles like finding other deep-pocketed investors, as well as getting a bankruptcy judge to approve such an unusual plan.

Isaac Larian, the CEO of the company that makes Bratz dolls, has a plan to save Toys "R" Us.

Larian said he isn't using any from MGA for the bid because he doesn't want to put his toy company at risk. And while Toys R Us and Babies R Us will continue accept gift card and e-gift cards for another 30 days, von Walter says they will no longer accept coupons.

"I liked the big aisles, and it (selection) was always bigger at Toys "R" Us", he said.

The iconic toy retailer Toys "R" Us is having a liquidation sale after it announced closures of all its USA locations. However, as headlines increased from several news outlets and social media was set ablaze, the Florence employees began to wonder.

Toys "R" Us founder, Charles Lazarus, died Thursday, March 22, just one week after the company announced it would be closing its USA operations. Lazarus, has died at 94, the company and his family have confirmed.

Before you even head to your closest Toys R Us location, do your homework. By the 1980s and early 90s, Toys R Us dominated the toy-store business and its jingle, "I'm a Toys R Us kid" became an anthem for children across the country.

Toys "R" Us revealed, in a bankruptcy court filing on March 15, it had suffered a crippling holiday season with numbers that were "well below worst case projections". He called Lazarus "a leader and innovator in the toy industry". "Your children will never shop at a Toys R Us".

About 30,000 people will be out of a job when the closure is finalized.

If you have any fond memories of buying toys of any kind from the store (including your first action figure), please share them with us in the comment section below, and maybe give a little thank you to Lazarus for stocking that shelf in the first place.

The company is trying to bundle its Canadian business with about 200 US stores and find a buyer.

Signs posted inside both local stores asked shoppers for their patience and understanding.

Known for his feisty demeanor, well-tailored suits and being a tough competitor - MGA was locked in years-long litigation with Mattel - Larian immigrated to the United States from Iran as a teenager in 1971.
