This post is brought to you in collaboration with Toys “R” Us.
Do you remember being a kid and waking up on Christmas morning or on your birthday and knowing that something special was coming? That excitement, the butterflies that danced around in the pit of your stomach? Remember that one magical moment when your parents took you to the toy store or let you unwrap that toy that you had been waiting for your whole life? For me it was the Baby Alive Doll. I had wished for one for months and my dad had gone almost everywhere trying to find one. We walked into that toy store, and I don’t think I remember ever being so happy again as I was that day with that doll in my arms.
Now, as a mom, I have watched that same magic moment occur for my own boys. Yes, toys are material objects, but that moment when a child gets a toy that they have been wishing and dreaming for, the look on their face, light in their eyes and smile on their faces is priceless!
Toys “R” Us is a company with a long standing tradition of creating such magical moments and helping to put those smiles on children’s faces for years and years. Have you watched your child’s face when you walk into a Toys “R” Us? It is incredible. This year, Toys “R” Us surprised a lucky group of kids with a trip to a Toys “R” Us store and let them choose any toy they wanted to take home. Check out their reactions, but have a tissue handy, it is fantastic!
Do you remember that toy that put that special look on your face? What about your children? Have you captured that magic moment on camera? I’d love to hear about it!
