In 1965, Toys "R" Us created "Geoffrey the Giraffe", as an official mascot. The "Я" character, found in many fonts, is of Cyrillic origin and normally indicates the "yah" sound in certain Eurasian languages. The "Я" character is also found in the other words, which are the "CHILDЯEN's" and "SUPEЯMARTS" text.

Starting in 1972, the logo's typeface became a bit smoother. Before 1976, the logo contained 8 characters: the T, the O, the Y, the first S, the backwards R, the U, the second S and the exclamation point "!".
Toys "R" Us
In 1976, the name was stylized as Toys "R" Us and the exclamation point was dropped from the logo. This time it contained 7 characters: the T, the O, the Y, the first S, the backwards R, the U and the second S.
In 1980, the logo's color scheme was finalized with the T in red, the O in yellow, the Y in blue, the first S in pink, the backwards R in green, the U in orange and the second S in blue.
In 1985, the logo's color scheme was finalized once again with the T in red, the O in orange, the Y in green, the first S in pink, the backwards R in yellow, the U in green and the second S in red. Some locations would continue to use this logo until the store's closure on June 29, 2018.
On September 1, 1998, the 1985 logo was modified to add a yellow star outline surrounding the backwards R but within one year, the logo was modified again so the star was surrounded by blue. This logo continued to be used at some locations until it went bankrupt on June 29, 2018.
The logo once again changed on September 22, 2007. With alternating sized characters, the first S's color scheme was finalized to a red version. There's also a slight change to the T, the O and the two S's. The star was added into the backwards R and it was made larger. Its color scheme was finalized again from yellow to blue and these speech marks were dropped from the backwards R.
On June 29, 2018, due to bankruptcy, all stores had been closed in the United States. On January 20, 2019, parent company Tru Kids Brands was formed to be the new owner for Toys "R" Us and Babies "R" Us.
In June of 2019, it was reported that "at least two" Toys "R" Us stores will be open for the 2019 Christmas season.
