This paper covers the pricing of toys to secure the top market position and uses Wal-Mart, Toys "R" Us and Kaybee Toys to compare different pricing strategies. It looks at several different ways marketers set a specific price for a certain product and market group and how they maintain this area. Finally it discusses Wal-Mart's market in toys to see why the most popular toy item projects them as a loss leader and why they choose this avenue.

From the Paper:

"In 2003 if you took a snap shot of the toy market you would have seen that Toys 'R' Us had the biggest market hold on the toy market. This is the year that Wal-Mart turn to their price cutting method use to draw in customers. They did this in the most simplest of ways...slashing their prices so that people couldn't pass up the good deals. I know I didn't pass up they deals. I haven't shopped at Toys-R-Us in quite a few years! They have almost created a dependency. They tactic was to use Toys-R-Us as the price marker and use them as the bar to set their prices and in most cases they were substantially cheap than the toy giant. Since the majority of the shoppers at Wal-Mart are in there because they want a bargain this only made sense. In most cases one could save up to 6 dollars when purchasing a single item. "
