Toys"R"Us operates not less than FOUR separate seller accounts on ebay:

eToys http://stores.ebay.com/eToys/Policies.html#aboutanchor

fao http://stores.ebay.com/fao/Policies.html#aboutanchor

Toys"R"Us http://stores.ebay.com/ToysRUs/Policies.html#aboutanchor

KB Toys http://stores.ebay.com/KBToys/Policies.html#aboutanchor

ebay policy does not allow the use of multiple accounts to avoid selling restrictions. Now, they don't forbid multiple accounts. Their policy states, "There are many reasons why users would choose to have more than one eBay account. For example, users who like to buy and sell may want separate accounts for each activity. Other users who maintain businesses on eBay may prefer to manage separate accounts for different product lines." http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/multiple-accounts.html

So let's see, do either of those reasons apply to Toys"R"Us?

Well, Toys"R"Us isn't using their multiple IDs to "separate buying and selling activity", since they aren't doing any buying.

And they don't have different product lines. All of their accounts sell toys. Let's look more closely at KB Toys.

KB Toys actually doesn't sell anything. It is a nonfunctioning entity. How can a defunct company have feedback for 16, 000+ ebay transactions over the last 12 months? It would be like an individual seller being in a COMA and racking up sales on ebay.

Toys"R"Us acquired the remains of KB Toys in 2009. Those remains mostly amounted to a name, a trademark and a website. The website has long since been shut down. About all that's left is a name and a trademark.

Let me repeat: KB Toys is NOT selling on ebay. Toys"R"Us is selling on ebay under multiple accounts in violation of ebay policy. And no one can tell me ebay doesn't know it.
