I remember, as a child, loving Thanksgiving morning. My brother and I would eat a delicious breakfast then cozy up next to the fire watching the parade and browsing the newspaper ads to create our holiday wish list. We would circle the toys we thought we’d love. These days it’s a little different. My kids don’t have to wait until Thanksgiving to start circling their favorites, but the excitement my children have for the Great Big Toys”R”Us Book of Awesome is the exact feeling I remember having. The anticipation of Christmas coming and the options for toys beams from their face. It makes my heart happy until the bickering over the Toys”R”Us Big Book starts happening. It was helpful to my parents when we circled the toys that caught our eye. They could use our circles to help build their list of what they wanted to get us.
We already know that Toys”R”Us knows what kids want but this year they showed us they know what parents want too! They introduced the 2D Scanning Feature. It is super helpful for keeping your child’s Wish List handy. It is also great if you are like me and have more than one child’s Wish List to keep track of.
You can make a Wish List, or multiple, on the Toys ‘R Us website. After your child circles all of his or her wishes in the Big Book, you can use the 2D Scanner feature on the Toys”R”Us website to scan the picture of the item and it will give you the option to add to your Wish List.
How simple and amazing is that?
Then you can shop online or go into the store with your Wish List(s) right on your smart device. Holiday shopping just became a little less stressful. When we buy toys for our girls we like to include some that have influence on their development. Toys”R”Us is stocked full of building and STEM toys for kids of all ages. Here are some of our older girls’ favorites that would be perfect for your tweens & teens.
