Why is Toys R Us at Macy’s?
A Bold Move by Macy’s: Partnering with Toys R Us Signals a Promising Future
Toys“R”Us has transitioned into primarily a licensed brand, and Macy’s has made a strategic move by incorporating the iconic Toys“R”Us brand, along with its distinctive marketing imagery and beloved mascot, Geoffrey, into toy sections within its department stores.
The 2023 list features toys from renowned brands like Barbie, Hot Wheels, Pokémon, and LEGO, catering to a wide range of ages. A notable addition this year is the exclusive Toys“R”Us global offering: the Geoffrey with a Globe FUNKO. Shoppers can also look forward to exclusive in-house brands such as Fast Lane, You & Me, and True Heroes.
The Macy’s and Toys R Us partnership extends beyond the holiday season, with Toys R Us establishing a presence in every Macy’s-branded store nationwide. For tech-savvy shoppers, both macys.com and toysrus.com, along with the Macy’s app, feature an extensive toy selection from the Hot Toy List, complemented by user-friendly online gift guides.
Adeline Trento, Macy’s resident toy expert, shared the company’s excitement, stating, “We are thrilled to bring Geoffrey’s Hot Toy List for the 2023 holiday season to our customers with unique ToysRUs experiences for kids of all ages to explore and discover all of these fun toys at Macy’s stores across the country.”
