TOYS“R”US, INC. APPLAUDS NATION’S TOUGH NEW CRIB SAFETY STANDARDS

WAYNE, NJ (June 28, 2011) – Toys“R”Us, Inc. today applauded the implementation of the nation’s tough new crib safety standards by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

In addition to important new quality and testing requirements, the strengthened standards prohibit the sale of drop-side cribs. As a company dedicated to the safety of children, Toys“R”Us, Inc. made the decision to stop carrying drop-side cribs more than two years ago, eliminating them from its product assortment at the end of 2009.

Jerry Storch, Chairman and CEO, Toys“R”Us, Inc., said, “There is nothing more important than the safety of children, and we applaud the implementation of these rigorous new standards, which will help parents provide a safer sleeping environment for their babies. As the leading dedicated toy and juvenile products retailer in the United States, Toys“R”Us, Inc. remains committed to providing leadership in working with legislators, regulators, manufacturers and consumer groups in our shared mission to ensure the safety of all children.”
