Toy retailer Toys R Us said Wednesday it will hire about 35,000 seasonal workers during the holidays.

The nation's largest toy seller said the amount is equal to its total work force hired during each of the previous two holiday seasons.

The privately held retailer said it is hiring additional staff for its traditional stores and 350 pop-up stores in malls and inside Babies R Us.

Furthermore, existing employees will have the option to work additional hours during the season.
