Spot on Richard! And we toy developers, designers and inventors will find that hole almost impossible to fill.

You make no mention of online, dominated but not exclusively Amazon.

Maybe there is a chance for some form of web site dedicated to kids where startup toy businesses could get visibility (for start ups on Amazon, this is as difficult as getting into Walmart etc).

While that is true in US, Countries in Asia Pacific are blessed as they still have TRU and in India it is dominated by Hamleys known to be a better toy retailer that brings the magic of toys by demonstrating them well in their stores. Hamleys is currently 60 stores and by March 2019 going to be 100 stores. In another 5 years time they may well be close to 500 mark. The new companies may well look at launching their toys in India in future!!!
