Babies Behind Bars is a 2-part documentary series that takes place in the maximum security Indiana Women's Prison. Of the 600 prisoners, about 60 are pregnant. Those inmates are vying for just 10 spots in the "baby dorm", which allows select inmates a chance to serve their sentence with their babies. It's part of a radical new project called the Wee Ones Program, and the goal is to give moms an opportunity to bond with their babies and, more importantly, avoid repeat offenses.
Runtime: 60 minutes
Babies Behind Bars - Toys "R" Us - Netflix
Toys “R” Us, Inc. is an American toy, clothing, video game, and baby product retailer founded in April 1948, with its headquarters located in Wayne, New Jersey. Founded by Charles Lazarus in its modern iteration in June 1957, Toys “R” Us traced its origins to Lazarus's children's furniture store, which he started in 1948. He added toys to his offering, and eventually shifted his focus. The company had been in the toy business for more than 65 years and operated around 800 stores in the United States and around 800 outside the US, although these numbers have steadily decreased with time. Toys “R” Us expanded as a chain, becoming predominant in its niche field of toy retail. Represented by cartoon mascot Geoffrey the Giraffe from May 1965, Toys “R” Us eventually branched out into launching the stores Babies “R” Us, Toys “R” Us Express, and the now-defunct Kids “R” Us. The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the U.S. on September 18, 2017, and has also filed for bankruptcy protection in Canada (see Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act). It was announced on March 14, 2018, that all Toys “R” Us stores in the United Kingdom would close. The next day, it was announced that the U.S. operations of Toys “R” Us were, after 70 years, going out of business and selling all 735 locations in the U.S. The bankruptcy of the chain in the United States has not affected various international operations, however, including Asia and Africa. Discussion then turned to the fate of the Canadian branches. The UK and US stores closed on April 24 and June 29, 2018 after over 70 years, respectively.

On August 23, 2011, Toys “R” Us Inc. announced it would open 21 new stores before year's end, as part of an overall strategy the company has been pursuing since 2006 to house Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us in the same building. The company says the stores provide more shopper convenience. The privately held toy company said this will include 11 “R” Superstores – which have full-size Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us stores in one place – and 10 stores that will have smaller Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us stores in the same place. The stores will be in 13 states including Alabama, California, Georgia, New Jersey, and Texas. It's also remodeling 23 existing stores so that the two stores will be in the same place.
