ToysRUs could survive with help from kid-at-heart Isaac Larian.

Could ToysRUs Survive?

It will if kid-at-heart Isaac Larian has anything to say about it! With hopes of saving the ToysRUs brand, the chief executive of MGA Entertainment (maker of the Little Tikes brand), made a whopping $675 million bid on Friday, April 13th, to save 274 U.S. ToysRUs stores. And he made another $215 million bid to acquire 82 stores in Canada.

As we shared a few weeks ago, Larian launched a $1 billion GoFundMe campaign to save hundreds of  ToysRUs stores in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. The campaign was not as successful as he had hoped (he only raised roughly $60,000 from 2,000 pledges), but the successful businessman has already personally pledged $100 million, with another $100 million coming from other undisclosed, large investors.

“I like challenges. I have some big, out-of-the-box ideas to save ToysRUs and grow the business if I’m successful in getting ToysRUs assets.” – Isaac Larian

If Larian’s bids are approved, he says he wants ToyRUs to be as interactive and as kid-friendly as a theme park — a place where children can play and try out new toys. It sounds intriguing, but what are your thoughts?

Do YOU think ToysRUs will bounce back?

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
