    Toys R Us pop ups in Kroger chains.

    Geoffrey's Toy box in Kroger stores with TRU toy brands like Journey Girls.

    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    Our local Ollie's store just got a huge amount of Toys R Us stock. My daughter and her husband did all their Christmas shopping there the other day.

    There are going to be two locations near me according to the list. Both of them are currently Kroger Plus set-ups that already have a toy section, so I'm not sure it'll add much.

    Do you have a link to the list (if it was in the linked article in the original post, I missed it).

    The brand is here at local Fred Meyer stores in Seattle area. Very cool.

    I don't think it was in the main article. I clicked a couple of links and found it.

    Ah cool, none of the 4 Krogers here in town will have it, but the large Kroger Marketplace a few towns over (Fairborn) will have it.

    So we stopped at the Fairborn Kroger that had the Geoffrey's Toybox set up today. For anyone hoping this is a return of Toys R Us, you're going to be sorely disappointed. It was two small freestanding cardboard display units with about 8-10 different toys* on it, all of the generic store brand toys TRU used to carry, nothing by any other toy manufacturer, essentially it's all the kind of stock that didn't get bought out by Ollie's not any kind of step towards some grand reemergence. It was also as you walked in the merchandise side while the actual toy department was all the way in the back and there was nothing branded Geoffrey's Toybox anywhere near the actual toy department. It looked like a cheap temporary seasonal display selling generic junk and nothing more.

    *what I remember seeing is a bucket of plastic army men, a bucket of plastic dinosaurs, each at about a $10 price point, a science experiment toy kit that was $20 something, a number of baby dolls ranging in size and price between $10 and $30 and something looking like a cheap drone toy and maybe one or two other things of that ilk.
