Toys R Us is ready to play with the grown-ups. The chain made its first foray into lobbying last month by hiring the Glover Park Group, according to a registration filed with the Senate last week. The Democratic firm is representing the retailer on product safety and trade issues, which have come to the forefront in recent months after companies issued recalls covering millions of popular toys because of lead paint and design flaws. The problems have raised questions about toys made in China, and the recalls have drawn attention from Congress. In August, Mattel, which issued some of the most extensive recalls, hired lobbyists at Johnson, Madigan, Peck, Boland & Stewart. Glover Park partner Joel Johnson says Toys R Us was referred to his firm by another firm that has partnered with Glover Park in the past.
