Photo of the Day : Day 196 I Wanna Be a Toys R Us Kid
The first time I laid eyes on his Jacket I had a child hood flash back and a jingle came to mind! Some of you may know it, some of you may not but here’s hint if your born before the 90’s living in America it would be a damn shame if you didn’t know it! It was the Toys R Us theme song” I don’t wanna grow up I’m a Toys R Us Kid” .
When I was a kid I’d bug my mom to take me to Toys R Us, to check out the latest Nintendo and Sega Genesis games. Whoever thought of the marketing campaign for Toys R Us was brilliant because a cartoonish giraffe jacket unrelated to the Toys R Us Geofrey the Girafe sparked a nostalgic moment over 20 years later. It makes me miss the Lionell Kiddy Cities,the KB Toy Stores and the frequent visits to the Toy’s R Us’s reminded me of how much I’d love to be a kid again!
