Macy’s and Toys “R” Us have released Geoffrey’s 2022 Hot Toy List.
Have you missed the famous Toys “R” Us jingle, “I don’t wanna grow up, I’m a Toys “R” Us kid,” being excitedly recited by your kid, or maybe even you? Well, it’s back, thanks to Macy’s, along with the beloved (and sometimes scary) Geoffrey the Giraffe.
For over 70 years, parents and kids have flocked to the beloved toy store. But all that joy and merriment came to a screeching halt in 2017 when the company was forced to close its doors. It seemed like the mad, late-night Christmas Eve dash to Toys “R” Us to nab the one toy your kid willfully exclaimed just hours before they would die if they didn’t get — was a distant memory. But now, Toys “R” Us is back.
In 2021, Macy’s swooped in and brought the dynamic toy brand back into the mainstream shopping arena both online and in over 400 Macy’s stores. Now, in 2022, the world’s greatest toy store is expanding. The Toys “R” Us Shop is coming to life in Macy’s stores everywhere and will feature colored fixtures, hands-on demos and a life-size “Geoffrey on a Bench” photo op for families.
Macy’s chief merchandising officer, Nata Dvir says, “Macy’s cannot wait to bring the Toys “R” Us experience to life in our stores. We hope Toys “R” Us kids of all ages discover the joy of exploration and play within our shops and families create special memories together.”
To celebrate, all Macy’s stores will host nine days of in-store Toys “R” Us events starting Oct. 15 through Oct. 23, which will include family-friendly activities and daily giveaways from top brands.
The Toys “R” Us Hot Toys
The Toys “R” Us Shop is just like its website used to be. It’s organized by age, toy type, characters and brands, and includes classic faves along with the latest in toy trends.
