GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Meijer  is looking for the “Next Great Toymaker” — a small toy manufacturer that would sell its product exclusively via Meijer.com through the 2012 holiday season.
The chain is seeking two toys — for boys or girls or both — one for children ages one to three, and one for children four to eight, according to a description of the contest on meijer.com . The toy, which needs to be less than 150 pounds, would support a retail cost of $19.99 or higher.
