Isaac Larian, the CEO of the toy company MGA Entertainment, on Friday bid $890 million for more than 300 Toys R Us stores in the U.S. and Canada.

Larian is the CEO of MGA Entertainment, the company behind products such as LOL Surprise and Bratz dolls.

Larian has also had about $252 million to date committed through a crowdfunding effort aimed at raising $1.3 billion to keep stores open, but the campaign doesn't cover Canadian stores. "The industry will truly suffer", he said in a statement.
