This is a sponsored post by Toys R Us but all opinions are 100% mine. As parents, we want to do everything we can to make our kid’s lives as enjoyable and full as we possibly can. We want to give them a great home, warm clothing and good food to eat. We try to teach them the best we can about being the best person they can be. There are times we wish we could be a superhero to our kids and sometimes, if we are lucky, we hit the mark. If you were to ask our kids what super hero powers they wish we could have, they would probably say they would like us to fly or maybe hang a bully by his pants on the school fence! What about the power to grant wishes? How cool would it be if we had the power for making wishes come true for our kids? Well, sometimes we probably can, but often we probably cannot. But over at Toys R Us, they are doing that for kids as well as their parents. Granted the wishes granted are polar opposites from one another, the result is the same; a lot of happy people!
Making Wishes Come True
Toys R Us is the largest retailer of kids toys and products in the world. They offer a wide variety of high quality products from several brands for infants through kids. There are almost 1,000 Toys R Us and Babies R Us stores in the US as well as Puerto Rico. In addition, you can find 700 stores in 35 countries around the world. A fact some people may not know is the famous FAO Schwarz store on Fifth Avenue in New York is operated exclusively by Toys R Us. You can also find the Toys R Us chain of stores as well as FAO online for their customers convenience. The company also cares about their customers and their children and the communities they live in. They have several programs in place that are dedicated to keeping children safe and giving them a hand when they need one.
This week, Toys R Us unveiled a very clever and completely heart warming TV campaign to kick of the 2013 holiday season, titled #WishinAccomplished. The campaign gives parents a peek into the world of Toys R Us through the eyes of their children. In their new commercial (you can see the video here), a group of kids get the surprise of a lifetime. You can see the dread on their faces as they trudge up the steps of a waiting bis to take them on a nature field trip. When their guide reveals he is actually taking them to Toys R Us instead, the bus erupts! You cannot help but grin from ear to ear when you see the huge smiles and looks of amazement on the kids faces.
Next you see the kids let loose in Toys R Us, where they are told they can choose any toy they want. One little girl will grab your heart when she looks up from playing and says, “This is the best toy ever. I am about to cry because this is the best toy ever.” I think the magic of the experience is portrayed so well and so real that parents can only picture their own kids in the same situation. Now all I want to do is head over to Toys R Us and take advantage of their excellent prices, free layaway, Price Match Guarantee, extended holiday return policy, and humongous selection. This campaign really shows you how Toys R Us is making wishes come true for kids all over the globe.
