Toys 'R' Us taps Target to fulfill online toy orders

Target powering Toys 'R' Us relaunch

Target powering Toys 'R' Us relaunch

You can't keep a good giraffe down.

Toys "R" Us is back in time for your holiday toy-shopping needs.

"Our U.S. strategy is to bring back the Toys R Us brand in a modern way through a strong experiential and content-rich omnichannel concept", Barry said in his own release. That means that, on top of reviews, the site will cover trends and even provide activity suggestions for kids.

To further revive the brand, Toys R Us also plans to open two physical locations in Houston, Texas, and Paramus, New Jersey, where customers can check out new products.

"See something you'd like to buy that isn't available onsite?"

Target has spent recent weeks promoting itself as a destination for the season's hottest toys, which include Frozen 2 and Star Wars products as part of a recent collaboration with Disney.

Retailers like Walmart Inc WMT.N and Target have been vying for a share of toy sales in the USA after the bankruptcy and subsequent liquidation of Toys "R" Us a year ago.

Target is just one in many partnerships Toys R Us has made during its much-heralded relaunch. In the case of Target, especially, it seems to be a chance to use a former toy giant to try to gain ground on Amazon.
