Bratz CEO makes bid for Toys R Us stores

Posted online

The CEO of MGA Entertainment Inc., manufacturer of Bratz dolls and Little Tikes toys, made a bid for Toys R Us stores in the United States and Canada.

Larian's bid came to nearly $900 million. It follows a failed crowdfunding effort aimed at raising $1 billion to buy the bankrupt Toys R Us.
