A New Jersey Baby Retailer Wins Rights to Buy Buy Baby’s IP With a $15.5 Million Bid

A little-known baby retailer based in Piscataway, New Jersey, has tentatively won the auction for the intellectual property of Bed Bath & Beyond’s crown jewel Buy Buy Baby, according to court records. 

Dream on Me Industries, which sells cribs, strollers and other baby goods through a host of retail partners, won the Wednesday auction with a bid price of $15.5 million, court records filed Friday say. The acquired assets include Buy Buy Baby’s intellectual property, business data, internet properties and mobile platform, the records say.

Wednesday’s auction was only for Buy Buy Baby’s intellectual property, after its parent company Bed Bath & Beyond decided to split up the sale process in an apparent effort to secure a higher bid price. Another auction for all of Buy Buy Baby’s assets, including its many stores, will be held July 7, the records say.
