I received the toys mentioned below from Toys R Us for purposes of evaluation. Thoughts are my own.
My family loves Toys R Us. My son’s face lights up every single time we pass by a TRU store because the logo is already so familiar to him. And also because he always has a great time whenever we visit one. We usually let him check out the toys and even ride on the big cars on display. This is also a great way for me and my husband to find out which toys he likes the most.
So let me tell you about 2 of the toys he loves looking at when we’re at a Toys R Us store.
My son already has the Tickle Time Elmo also from Hasbro and he loves it so much. It’s one of the toys that we simply can’t throw away because we know he’ll notice right away. And when we visited Toys R Us one time, he lingered around the Big Hugs Elmo display and kept on pushing buttons so he can see Elmo move and hear him talk.
My son enjoys playing with his Big Hugs Elmo. And I was pleasantly surprised that when his best friend came over to our house, he loved the toy as well! He was hugging Elmo nonstop so I just had to tell his parents that a Big Hugs Elmo might be a good gift idea for him this Christmas.
My son has always been fascinated with airplanes. So it wasn’t such a surprise for me when he couldn’t keep his hands off the PLANES products at Toys R Us. There was even a time that my husband and I decided to buy 2 of the toy planes on display because our son didn’t want to let go of them. So imagine his excitement when he saw the box with this toy plane inside!
The Disney PLANES Wing Control Dusty Crophopper Radio Control Plane moves as the controller does and is geared towards kids ages 3 years and up. Just hold the controllers as pictured and lean to the sides or forward to make Dusty move. Now your kids can recreate scenes from the movie, except that it doesn’t actually fly. 😀
The plane includes over 40 sounds and phrases that adds more fun to playtime. I would have loved it even more if the batteries were already included in the package because it does require a lot — 4 AAs for the plane’s body and 2 AAAs for the controller. I think more and more toys are not including batteries in their package these days. But that doesn’t take away from the fact that this is a really fun toy to have!
BUY IT! The Big Hugs Elmo from Hasbro and the Disney Planes Wing Control Dusty Crophopper Radio Control Plane from Mattel are available for purchase at any Toys R Us store near you and online!
