Meaning and history

Toys R Us Logo history

1948 – 1957

Toys R Us Logo-1948
The Toys R Us logo was created in 1948 when the store was called “Children’s Supermart”. It was a simple yet bright banner in white with bold arched lettering in the red set above the blue promotional text-line, where there were sales and deal announced.

1957 – 1967

The redesign of 1957 introduced the logo where the “Toys R Us” line first appeared. It was a cool and friendly monochrome badge with the “Children’s Supermart” nameplate on top, and a funny giraffe image on the left. The animal was wearing a Sabra hat and saying “Toys R Us”.

1967 – 1969

Toys R Us Logo-1967In 1967, the brand was officially renamed “Toys “R” Us” and adopted a logo with letters of different colors. The old Toys R Us logo looked pretty similar to the current one, though there were several notable differences.

1969 – 1972

In 1969, the design was slightly updated. While the overall style remained the same, there was some playing around with the color and shape of the glyphs.

1972 – 1976

1976 – 1980

1985 – 1998

1998 – 2007

The 2007 emblem had both the shapes and colors modified. If you compare it side by side with the previous logo, you’ll notice almost all the letters have slightly altered their shape and size. This is especially noticeable in the case of the “R.” As for the star, it was still present on the logo, although it grew smaller and was now placed inside the reversed “R.”
