The lead-up to today's news is a £15 million ($20.8 million) Value-Added Tax bill that the retailer is unlikely to be able to pay off due to poor sales.
Toys R Us has struggled with cash flow pressures after sales were squeezed by worse-than-expected trading over the crucial Christmas period.
As of late past year, Toys'R'Us in the United Kingdom employed more than 3,000 staff across more than 100 mostly warehouse-style stores.
Businesses and governments invest a lot of money in keeping up with - or ahead of - the times.
"While the narrative about the sad demise of Toys'R'Us focuses on how it was killed by the Internet, data shows that the rise of multichannel player Smyths caused even more damage than Amazon", said Patrick O'Brien, retail research director at consultancy GlobalData.
