RETAILERS DREAMING OF A GREEN CHRISTMAS WITHOUT TOYS R US

Everyone in retail, it seems, is playing in the toy game this year after the country's biggest toy store liquidated. But will there really be any surprises about who wins? The retail market for toys, on the whole, is worth $36.8 billion in revenue and covers more than 60,000 players. Store-based retailing of traditional toys and games is worth nearly $4.8 billion, down from about $6 billion in 2012.
