  • Some former Toys R Us employees say they’re upset that the toy chain likened its bankruptcy to a vacation.
  • Toys R Us posted a tweet on October 6 featuring a picture of the company mascot, Geoffrey the Giraffe, holding a suitcase, saying that the iconic mascot had returned from traveling the world, signaling the company’s plans to relaunch the brand.
  • Some of those former employees have accused the company’s investors of profiting from the bankruptcy while failing to pay into a fund intended to help affected employees.

Toys R Us signaled that it could make a comeback using its mascot, Geoffrey the giraffe in a message posted on Twitter last weekend.
