The Rise and Fall of Toys R Us: Memories of When Toys Ruled the World



On this episode Dan digs through the history of beloved and nearly departed toy store Toys R Us.

From its humble beginnings as Bargainworld to it’s website and strategy problems to its acquisition of FAO Shwarz and KB Toys to its bankruptcy filing in 2017.

Toys R Us may be soon gone but not soon forgotten.

He also explains what a leveraged buyout is. Don’t worry. It’s cool.
