Because kids sometimes write their letters backwards and it's a kids toy store and it gets your attention and because they want to market to dysexlics too?

Pick a reason.

They are communists. The name of the store is "Toys Ya Us".

The real question is, in Russia do little kids draw the backwards-R as "R" to be cute?

Toys -> Kids -> backwards "R" is how some kids initally write -> see the connection here?

Also, it's probably more recognizable (and trademarkable) than a normal "R".
