    LEGO Banana Guy Minifigure with Hut Set

    LEGOLandBillund has revealed a new LEGO Banana Guy Minifigure with House. The mini LEGO product contains 5 pieces and even includes a mini orange radio box! In the past, there was another LEGO Banana Minifigure that was released and it was 71013 LEGO Minifigures Series 16. However, this version of the Banana Man does not contain sunglasses and has no banner logo on the banana. It also has sandals as well!

    This should probably be a promotional item in the future just like the Mini Easter Bunny Hut set. (via Promobricks and thebrickfan)

    Founder of Toys R Us Passes Away at 94

    There’s more sad news for Toys R Us. Charles Lazarus, the founder of Toys R Us Inc. has passed away at the age of 94 in Manhattan, New York City today. This is a week after Toys R Us announced that it be shutting down its stores in America. Charles Lazarus stepped down as CEO in 1994.

    The first Toys R Us store was opened in 1957 and then expanded quite rapidly using its toy supermarket formula by driving out smaller toy retailer competitors.  It became the largest toy store chain in the world with offerings of toys year round and not just during Christmas time. However, they are no longer able to compete in the digital age with online shopping and mobile games. In addition, it had a high debt load which made it difficult for them to continue to improve and innovate its existing stores and its online website. Thanks to Fortune for the news.

    While the parent company Toys R Us America is going through liquidation, Toys R Us Canada has received multiple non-binding bids on the Canadian operations and its 82 stores as reported on Financial Post. This is definitely good news. One of the bidders is MGA Entertainment (producer of Bratz dolls and Little Tikes). Toys R Us Canada has strong leadership and enough cash to continue paying its vendors.

    Toys R Us is hoping that they are able to secure a buyer that will take up not only the Toys R Us Canada network of 82 stores, but also the top 200 performing stores in America. The whole process is being speeded up where the auction will be held on March 29 and the closing will occur at the latest by April 16. If all goes well, we may still have Toys R Us stores on both sides of the border.
