The Great Big Toys”R”Us Book of Awesome is out! Included this year is a great interactive game – “The Geoffrey Shuffle” and a Sweepstakes!! Awesome is an under-statement! The book is full of ideas for every little one on your list.
When my kids were young each year I dreaded the arrival of that giant toy book that they spent hours pouring over and folding over the pages of things they wanted. Not because I didn’t want them to get what they wished for from Santa because the book always arrived after Santa had already done most of her shopping! Oh boy how times have changed! Now that I have a granddaughter, I love to pour over the toy books with her, writing lists of things that she just has to have! Fortunately, the Great Big Toys”R”Us Book of Awesome came early this year! This highly anticipated guide, packed with nearly 1,000 of the year’s hottest toys, will begin arriving on the doorsteps of millions of homes next week and in newspapers today (October 31). Deals in the book are in effect from Sunday, November 1 through Saturday, November 21. If you don’t receive your copy in the mail or in your Sunday paper, just visit your local Toys”R”Us to pick up a copy!
And, different from when my kids were young – New this year, Toys”R”Us company has introduced an augmented reality experience through which kids are able to bring their favorite toys from The Great Big Toys“R”Us Book of Awesome to life within The Geoffrey Shuffle app game. In the palm of a hand, kids can examine their favorite toys by zooming-in to see intricate details, spinning or walking around pages of the interactive edition of The Great Big Toys“R”Us Book of Awesome for different angles or capturing photos of their favorite toys within the game.
To play, using an interactive edition of The Great Big Toys“R”Us Book of Awesome, just download “The Geoffrey Shuffle on your phone or tablet and you’re ready to go! Look for a golden Geoffrey coin, located at the bottom corners of the book’s pages. Once located, hold a smart phone or tablet over the respective page and the game will begin loading. The game encourages players to find Geoffrey as he and two other kid-favorite licensed characters, such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Barbie, Darth Vader and more, hide in shuffled gift boxes.
Upon completing the game, players can enter Geoffrey’s Awesome Christmas Sweepstakes (Official Rules and how to Enter Sweepstakes without playing The Geoffrey Shuffle) for a chance to win awesome prizes, including a $2,000 Toys“R”Us Gift Card and a Beaches® Resorts Luxury Included® Vacation.
Once my 7 year old granddaughter saw the app/game – she was thrilled! Within seconds she was working her way through the game much to my 31 year old son’s disappointment since he wanted to keep playing!
This year’s Great Big Toys”R”Us Book of Awesome kept my family busy for hours! Make sure to get your copy soon. The deals included only last through November 21!
