The fall of Toys”R”Us has been a big blow for many, especially those of us who grew up going to the giant toy retailer on the regular. Toys”R”Us is sure to leave behind some mighty big shoes to fill, and it looks like another icon of ’80s and ’90s retail is about to return in an attempt to do just that.

KB Toys looks to be making a play for a comeback as the retro toy store has announced the beginning phases of bringing back the brand are taking place.


According to the press release, the new and improved KB Toys is aiming at opening up shop both online and in physical retail spaces. As KB Toys was predominantly located in malls across the US, we expect a similar treatment this time around. Keep in mind that the press release was pretty vague — but we expect to get more info as we approach the holiday season. Stay tuned!

  4. This sounds like a promising idea! Was sad to know Toys R Us had to close down, this may be due to the many changes in the kinds of toys children play. Hopefully retro toys will spark children’s interest again.
