The giraffe is back! Toys R Us will be back in business in some locations just in time for the holidays.

The former toy retailer has teamed up with software retailer b8ta to reopen Toys R Us stores across the country after the company went out of business last year, CNBC reported.

The first two stores will be located at Simon Property Group's Galleria in Houston and Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield's Garden State Plaza in Paramus, New Jersey, according to CNBC.

Eight additional locations will open by the end of 2020, Bloomberg reported.

The first stores will be smaller than the original toy box store, with only 6,500 square feet, according to Bloomberg. But they may get bigger as the brand grows, taking 10,000 square feet, Phillip Raub, co-founder and president of b8ta, told Bloomberg.
