Retail in brief
Bakugan Battle Brawlers a sell out
Barely two months after launching in South Africa, new toy Bakugan Battle Brawlers has sold out in Toys R Us countrywide. Created in Japan, Bakugan combines magnetic playing cards and collectible marble-like objects that click open into action figures when they roll over the cards. An accompanying TV show, on Cartoon Network, has accelerated the toy's popularity.
