Toys ‘r’ us will sell toys at its retail stores and online through its Canada division as long as they do not contain any harmful or prohibited materials, a company spokesperson said in an email.
The company’s Canadian division is the only one of its brands still in business in the country, and it has been under pressure to do so.
“The safety and health of our customers is of the utmost importance to us and we have carefully reviewed the safety information we have for Toys ‘ R’ Us in Canada and around the world,” the spokesperson said.
Toys ‘R’, Us has been hit by a series of high-profile scandals in recent years, including allegations that it encouraged customers to get tattoos and engage in sexual activity.
The retailer was sued in the United States by a woman alleging she was sexually assaulted at the company’s Toronto headquarters in 2016.
In June, it was ordered to pay more than $1.6 million in back wages and legal fees to women who alleged they were sexually harassed at the store.
A Toys ‘ r ‘ s spokesman said in a statement that “no toy retailer would be more disappointed or hurt by this ruling.”
“Toys R’ s commitment to customers and our commitment to supporting the safety of all our employees is our top priority, and we will be taking the necessary steps to comply with this decision,” the spokesman said.
