In February, rumors about the now-defunct playtime giant Toys “R” Us swirled, citing that the store was making a return as Try Kids. But then nothing—that is until now!

According to a recent report from Bloomberg, the toy super-store is possibly making a return this holiday season. While we won’t see a Geoffrey the Giraffe popping up across the country yet, Tru Kids is reportedly opening about half a dozen stores in the United States as well as an e-commerce website.

As of now, Tru Kids hasn’t officially commented on the matter. However, insiders did reveal to Bloomberg that former Toys “R” Us exec and current Tru Kids CEO Richard Barry was pitching ideas to bring the store back to life to toymakers and at an industry conference.

So what can you expect from the new Toys “R” Us/Tru Kids experience? Right now the details are limited to rumors and possibilities—including smaller store spaces and more interactive play spaces.
