Every Child’s Dream! Sponsored Fun Toy Fantasy Video

Marnie from Carrots Are Orange pointed out that the initial message in this video that forest = boring is not a good a message for parents or kids. I agree. I wish the lead in was different. There really is no need to send a message that a field trip to the woods isn’t fun. We did a really successful book club for 3rd grade girls doing just that! And going to the woods to make stick toys is the only thing practically that keeps my little son off screens. Please rethink that Toys “R” Us.

I have to say that I was mesmerized by the joy of the kids rushing into the toy store that I bliped over the forest field trip part. Mea culpa.

When you were a kid, did you ever fantasize about being able to go to a toy store and pick out anything you want?! I did but it never happened. Toys arrived, of course, for birthdays and Christmas, but never that wild shopping fling of racing through aisles to find that perfect, extravagent toy that your parents would never get you.

There are other toy store fantasies too. Toys coming alive. And that is so wonderfully depcited in the movie Toy Story and in chapter books like The Doll People trilogy.

Another toy store fantasy is the movie Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium with Natalie Portman. Magical toys in a toy store. That just about covers every fantasy there is!

In this video that I wanted to share with you, watch as Toys”R”Us surprise some lucky kids by letting them pick any toy in the store. Toys”R”Us is making wishes come true this holiday season.


This post is sponsored by Toys ‘R’ Us. Would you ever give a child the chance to pick any toy from a toy store? I’m thinking that might be the perfect gift if you wanted to be an indulgent relative! I’d probably not do it for my own child though. Would you?

  2. I probably would if I could afford the upper limit – especially for a child who had very little.

    That flying fairy is pretty awesome.

    • Hi MaryAnne,
      Hopefully, the upper limit at Toys R Us isn’t too astronomical. I’ve heard of a toy gift wrapping party in Boston for needy children but I don’t the details. I think I am going to look into that for my kids to do. I think toys get donated; you sign up with your kids to wrap the gifts and then homeless kids get bussed in for a day of fun including practical things like nurse/doctor visits, haircuts, and gifts.

  3. Pandemonium! The ultimate field trip for any child.

  4. Toy story is one of the favorite cartoons of my son. From the moment when it first was shown on TV, we have bought almost all the possible toys which embodied the characters of this film. I`m sure he would be happy to attend such toy store.

    Did any of you actually watch the ad??? Forest = Boring. What an awful message to send families. Shame on Toys R Us. I don’t mean to offend anyone but I’m mortified at this ad. I thought it was a joke!!
