Toys R Us is been a known brand to me, as a mother almost 10 years, when I was there in U.K. Later coming to India, there were times we use to talk about the toys we got for my daughter at Toys R Us, U.K. Very happy and more excited when I got an invite for the launch of Toys R Us at Phoenix Market City, Bangalore. My kids were more excited about the launch, and their guess for offers and more new toys.

Global retail Toys R Us, launched their first store in Bangalore at Oct 7th, 2017. Tablez India, Franchise of Toys R Us is been expected to open 65 stores all over India by 2025. Tablez India, a division of Abu Dhabi-based LuLu Group International already has an exclusive master franchise agreement with US companu, Toys Pvt.

In India, the brand has launched the store in two formats – Toys “R” Us which is the world’s leading toy store and Babies “R” Us, a one-stop destination for baby essentials. The store is designed to be an experimental store and is spread over 20,000 sq.ft.
