Guys, the Toys”R”Us Toy Book of Awesome is hitting newsstands this weekend! I remember looking forward to the toy book when I was a little girl. I remember waking up early on Sunday morning to head to the local bodega (grocery store) with my dad to pick up the newspaper. Now my children look forward to seeing The Great Big Toys”R”Us Book of Awesome (ok, me too!).
The Great Big Toys”R”Us Book of Awesome is different this year. It has an app, The Geoffrey Shuffle (available on iTunes and Google Play store), that brings the book to life. Through an augmented interactive experience kids are able to scan specialty marked page to play a game. The game shuffles three gift boxes – the catch? Find Geoffrey! Players will see their favorite characters in the gift boxes but the goal is to find Geoffrey. Once you find Geoffrey, players will unlock a coin. Upon completing the game, players can enter Geoffrey’s Awesome Christmas Sweepstakes for a chance to win awesome prizes, including a $2,000 Toys“R”Us Gift Card and a Beaches® Resorts Luxury Included® Vacation.
Kids can also play the app without using the The Great Big Toys”R”Us Book of Awesome. The more they play the more chances they have to win. Remember there is a daily sweepstakes and the grand prize. The game is fun for kids and my son loved seeing his favorite characters pop up. You can see a quick overview of the game here.
The Great Big Toys“R”Us Book of Awesome is filled with tons of savings for parents. Who doesn’t love saving money, right? Here are some examples,
- FREE $10 Toys“R”Us Gift Card with a purchase of $75 or more
- FREE LEGO® Star Wars: The Force Awakens gift with ANY LEGO Star Wars purchase of $40 or more
- SAVE $10 on any regular priced Barbie® doll or playset purchase of $49.99 or more
My son has his eyes on LEGO building sets which he has already mentioned in his Wish list. The book has a page where kids can write the toys they want or they can just circle them like my daughter did. Be prepared for your kids to look through the book multiple times! My kids loved seeing all the new toys.
Toys”R”Us is offering some awesome services on top of the amazing savings:
- Price Match Guarantee
- Free store pickup
- Free shipping on purchases of $19 or more
Awesome, right? Sometimes I prefer shopping online than heading out to crowded malls. I have the option to ship it straight to my house or pick up in store if I’m on time constraints. I love that Toys”R”Us is offering these services this Holiday season.
Oh, and one more thing, “I don’t wanna grow up, I’m a Toys R Us kid
they got a million toys at Toys R us that I can play with…”
Sorry I had to, ha ha! Now it’ll be stuck in your head all day!
Will you be picking up The Great Big Toys“R”Us Book of Awesome this weekend?
