The Toys R Us brand is coming back to Australia just a year after it went into liquidation.

Hobby Warehouse will start to use the Toys R Us and Babies R Us branding under agreement with US parent company Tru Kids Inc.

However, the stores won’t be as large as they have previously been.

Instead, an online focus will be the way forward, which will be supported by “small and fewer physical ‘experience centres’ that allow children and their families and friends” to see and touch the toys.

The website is due to go live on June 12.
