Larian said he and the other investors joining him in the offer believe the bids represent "a very fair valuation for the properties". If they do, the real work will begin.

Larian's bid may be viewed as tenuous for the viability of the retailer as MGA is considered a competitor to numerous other toy makers whose products would be stocked on the shelves.

Toys R Us announced in March that it would shut down or sell all its U.S. stores but Larian says the liquidation would have a negative impact on the industry. "I want to preserve that innocent experience for future generations".
