Toys R Us is set to open a new 'mini-shop' inside a WH Smith store in Sutton.

The toy chain, which went bankrupt in 2018, has relaunched and is now opening 17 concessions in WH Smith stores across the UK.

Among the new locations are three in Surrey - Guildford, Sutton and Woking - and one in George Street, Richmond.

The company has already launched nine shops-in-shops as part of the ongoing partnership with WH Smith, with three more opening on May 25.

The goal is to open 30 more outlets across the country by the end of August.

These openings are part of Toys R Us's effort to restore the brand which has been recognised and loved since the mid-80s.

The collapse of Toys R Us in 2018 saw all 100 of its stores closed and a loss of 2,000 jobs.

The toy store announced plans for a relaunch in October 2022, before making an exclusive deal with WH Smith for concessions across the country.

High street managing director at WH Smith, Sean Teal, said: "I have seen first-hand how positively our customers have responded to the new ranges.

"Many tell me it feels like a back to the future moment - a brand they had known and loved since the mid-80s which is back to deliver the magic to a whole new generation of families."

Mr Teal added: "From Hereford to Hastings, today we’ve unveiled the first 17 locations for the new Toys R Us stores in WHSmith.

"Not only is this an exceptionally exciting time for our colleagues and customers, but we’re also proud to be bucking the trend by continuing to invest in the UK high street."
