WAYNE, NJ – (January 10, 2008) – Today, Toys"R"Us, Inc., the world’s premier toy and baby products retailer, announced its comparable store sales for the nine-week holiday selling period from November 4, 2007 to January 5, 2008, as compared to the period from November 5, 2006 to January 6, 2007.

The Toys"R"Us, U.S. division reported a comparable store sales increase of 3.1%. These results were driven by an effective marketing program, significant improvements in the store shopping environment, the early identification of key toy trends, better staffing at the store level and a robust in-stock position on the season’s most popular items, including Smart Cycle™ Physical Learning Arcade System from Fisher-Price™, Wii™ and DS™ Lite from Nintendo®, Guitar Hero® III: Legends of Rock video game software from Activision® and Hannah Montana products from JAKKS Pacific® and other manufacturers.

The Babies"R"Us division experienced a comparable store sales increase of 0.9%. The division’s performance was the result of continued growth and differentiation in its merchandise assortment, including new offerings that reinforced the division’s leadership position in the juvenile market, as well as compelling marketing efforts.

Internationally, the company continues to expand its global business and reported a comparable store sales increase of 0.9%, driven by the performances of its United Kingdom, Southern Europe and Canadian operations. The inclusion of Japan in the company’s international fiscal reporting reduced comparable store sales by 1.7 percentage points. Results were favorably impacted by continued performance in the juvenile and core toy categories, as well as strong sales in video game hardware and software, most noteably Wii™ from Nintendo® and PlayStation® 3 from Sony®. The company continued to expand its global presence by opening 15 new stores in its wholly-owned international markets since last holiday season. In addition, the company opened its first licensed store in South Korea in December.

"We are pleased with our holiday sales results," said Jerry Storch, Chairman and CEO, Toys"R"Us, Inc. "The team delivered a solid positive comp sales performance for the second year in a row, despite not only a tough economic climate, but also the unique challenges in the toy industry during 2007. In delivering another strong performance across the company, we are excited about our strategic direction and the results we have achieved. At Toys"R"Us, we love kids, so we are delighted that children and their families have appreciated and enjoyed the changes and improvements we continue to make in our business."

The company’s overall fourth quarter performance will be reported in its Annual Report on Form 10-K, which will be filed on or before May 2, 2008.
