And this time at Hard Rock Café was more memorable to me, as I don’t consume liquor – I had non-alcoholic version of Trouble Maker, I loved it to the core. I could feel the spiciness, sweetness as they have infused jalapeno peppers to it.

Launch of Toys R Us, Phoenix Market City, Bangalore

Launch of Toys R Us, Phoenix Market City, Bangalore

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. Ltd., launched the global retail brand Toys “R” Us in the Indian market in Bangalore. Toys “R” Us operates more than 859 eponymos and Babies “R” Us stores in North America and its porducts are sold at 1/00 inter-stores in 37 countries.

Also Toys “R” Us was inaugurated by five young achievers from Karnataka along with Adeeb Ahamed, Managing Director, Tablez and Shafeena Yusuff Ami, Chairperson, Tablez India.

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.

As the world’s largest Toy store, Toys R Us offers toys for all range for both boys and girls and had dedicated section for each category.

There was very big section for soft toys, different section for Barbie, Frozen, and sport toys like basketball, boxing equipment. A wide section for remote cars, Fast track cars, Hot wheels (my son’s favorite), Lego Land, including educational toys, art and craft, books, games and puzzles in learning category.

Babies “R” Us is the quintessential stop for new and expectant moms and young parents with full range of products like diapers, baby food, wipers, needs for feeding moms and so on. Also, they had bedding, travel, safety, baby gear, infant care and apparels for babies. There was also themed bedding collection for toddlers like Barbie, Thomas.

The launch was very well organized with workshops, face painting, nail art, whereas kids got to meet the giraffe from Geoffrey. They also have more activities and there was offers, every kid who registers on that got a gift voucher worth INR. 1k and more over many vouchers.

I would highly recommend Toys “R” Us being a mother of two kids – A girl and A boy. As I could get toys for both of them at a same place and no more roaming with many varieties. Happy me and Visit Toys “R” Us, I am sure you will also include the wordings – “Happy Me”
