Toys ‘R’ Us has decided to open up a new internet business, funded by themselves and top tier venture capitalist Benchmark Capital. Interesting to see old line businesses turning to internet venture capitalists to fund their new spin off companies. I understand why they’re doing this, I just want to see how it’s going to turn out.
