Toys R Us sued for stealing trade secrets

Fuhu Inc. says toy store ripped off the design of its children’s tablet

The maker of a children’s tablet computer is suing Toys R Us, claiming the nation’s largest toy retailer stole trade secrets for its popular Nabi tablet.

Fuhu Inc. claims in its suit, filed in a San Diego federal court yesterday, that Toys R Us agreed to exclusively sell the Nabi during last year’s holiday season, then used the relationship to rip off the toy’s design and make the Tabeo, a similar product that Toys R Us will launch this month. In its suit, Fuhu claims Toys R Us committed fraud, breach of contract, unfair competition and misappropriation of trade secrets.
