We all know how excited a child is gearing up towards his/her birthday. Not only are they excited for the birthday party and sweet treats, they are also anxious to see what they get for a birthday present.
I remember when my kids were younger. Our daughter would have a wish list a mile long. Our son’s list was much shorter – he just wanted cars and trucks.
We used to take our kids to Toys “R” Us before their big day to get an idea of what toys and games to get them as a gift. Even though my daughter had a list she would always find something else she wanted from Toys “R” Us. Once we had an idea of what to get her we’d let family and friends know what she wanted, so they could swing by their local Toys “R” Us to pick them up.
My husband and I are ‘Toys “R” Us Kids” for life! We even go to Toys “R” Us on our own to check out the toys (we like to press buttons and see what the toys do – LOL). We’ve been known to buy goodies for ourselves too – most recently a Star Wars game for the television (a “plug and play” toy) for my hubby and I picked up another FUNKO Pop! to add to my collection.
We love that Toys “R” Us has it all – toys, games, crafts, books, outdoor toys, riding toys, baby items and so much more. They even sell cards and wrapping paper, making it a great “one stop shop” for all your birthday needs.
Toys “R” Us knows how very special a child’s birthday is, that is why they created the ultimate Birthday Club – to help celebrate your child’s (or grandchild’s) birthday in a big way.
Toys “R” Us has had a Birthday Club for as long as I an remember. Even my children were members at one time.
Geoffrey’s Birthday Club is a program where parents can register their children’s birthdays to receive special birthday-month offers.
Each year on the Birthday Club member’s birthday they will receive a birthday card and special gift from Geoffrey (up until the age of 10).
To make it even more special, Toys “R” Us now has to option to sign up to have your child receive a special birthday phone call from Geoffrey himself. How fun is that!
As if this isn’t fun enough, Toys “R” Us has taken it one step further with a special in-store birthday celebration. These events take place nationwide at Toys “R” Us locations across the country.
The next event is taking place on Saturday, June 18 from 3:00 – 4:00 PM (the next date is July 16, 2016). During this event and all those following, Geoffrey’s Birthday Club members who are celebrating a birthday on/around the day will have the opportunity to participate in story time with Geoffrey and receive a complimentary “The Legend of Geoffrey” book, crown, balloon and Geoffrey plush, PLUS dance to Geoffrey’s brand-new birthday song in a conga line around the store. Geoffrey’s Birthday Club members will also continue to receive a personalized birthday card, a phone call from Geoffrey and a special gift.
What fun! I wish my kids were younger again. They would have loved something like this. I’m an adult and even I would love to participate. LOL!
The new book, “The Legend of Geoffrey,” would make a great gift in it’s self.
For decades Geoffrey the Giraffe has helped kids have awesome birthdays, matching them with their perfect toys. But a long time ago, in a faraway land, Geoffrey was an ordinary giraffe. How did his coat become covered in stars? What sent him across the seas? How did he come to live at Toys“R”Us? And how does he bring toys to life? Discover all this and more in The Legend of Geoffrey!
The book is very sweet, filled with cute and colorful illustrations.
I have a copy of the book. It’s not an easy reader (it’s more for children 6+ as far as reading level). This is a wonderful story that makes for a great bedtime story. Now that I read it I can appreciate the character of Geoffrey more.
I also have the plus Geoffrey that is given to the birthday children during the event. He’s absolutely adorable!
I think it’s wonderful that Toys “R” Us would offer so many wonderful things to help a child celebrate their birthday. I also appreciate that Toys “R” Us is promoting reading and literacy with story time with Geoffrey and by gifting birthday children a special book.
Now that I know more about Geoffrey’s Birthday Club, I like Toys “R” Us even MORE (I didn’t think that was possible – I already loved the store). I love that they want to make children feel special.
If you would like to learn more about Geoffrey’s Birthday Club, or to sign up, visit Toysrus.com/Birthday. There you can also browse some wonderful gift ideas, separated by age range, making it easier to find the perfect gift. You can also browse gift ideas based on the birthday child’s interests (Super Heroes, dolls, arts & crafts, animals, games, sports and so forth). I rely on things like this often when buying gifts for friend’ children’s and young relatives. It makes it a lot easier to narrow it down to the ideal gift.
Don’t forget – the next birthday celebration is happening on June 18th, and the next one is July 16th. Make sure to mark your calendar.
Is your child/grandchild a Geoffrey’s Birthday Club member? If not, will you be signing them up?
Do you plan on attending the Geoffrey’s Birthday Club celebration this month (or next month)?
