Meanwhile, there is talk of selling Toys "R" Us' Asian business, despite it being the company's most profitable area.

Claire's Stores Inc., another chain that sells some toys, also is said to be nearing bankruptcy - though it's not at the point of being shut down. The liquidation would hurt more than just Toys "R" Us.

While there is still a chance another company could purchase Toys "R" Us, hopes are fading.
