Toys R Us founder dies days after chain announces shutdown
Charles Lazarus' net worth is estimated to be more than $100 million. He said a total Toys "R" Us liquidation could mean MGA would have to lay off workers at an OH plant that makes the Little Tikes toy vehicles.
"During my life as an entrepreneur, I was often told something couldn't be done, that no doll could challenge Barbie". "It's very organized and has everything, so we got anxious and got into panic mode to buy everything now before it's all gone".
Shelves in the video gaming area of Toys R Us was low for Nintendo 3DS, Xbox 360, and PS4. The company owed about $5 billion when it filed for bankruptcy in September.
Larian, with a net worth of $1 billion, according to Forbes, and associated investors personally pledged $200 million.
Lazarus, who stepped down as CEO of Toys R Us in 1994, transformed the toy industry with a business model that became one of the first retail category killers-big stores that are so devoted to one thing, and have such an impressive selection, that they drive smaller competitors out of business.

The chain's liquidation will have a "devastating effect" on the toy industry, said Larian, who estimates that 130,000 jobs in the USA could be lost when you include layoffs at suppliers and logistic operations.
"I have 1,200 people in Hudson, Ohio, making Little Tikes", he said. Babies R Us registry users with "endless earnings" and other rewards must reportedly redeem those by mid-April.
