Every child loves to celebrate his or her birthday. It's most likely a favorite day of the year! As parents, caregivers, friends, and family, we love seeing their little faces light up at the sheer joy and excitement of it all. Any way to foster their happiness ranks at the top of our list. Did you know that Toys“R”Us has a birthday club? A club JUST for birthdays?! All you have to do is sign up for their Rewards "R" club and your child will receive a card and gift from the giraffe himself every year until they turn 10. Best of all, membership is completely free.
We got a special sneak peak of the new book The Legend of Geoffrey and our little reader absolutely loved it. First, your child can personalize the book with his or her name and birthday. Then they can enjoy the story with their plush new pal and learn why his spots are stars.
