As a child, I remember how excited I would be when the Christmas catalog would arrive from Toys“R”Us!  I had all the best toy possibilities available at my fingertips, making it super easy to add items to my wish list for Santa!  Now that we have kids of our own, they do the same thing.  They love looking at page after page of toys and making their Christmas wish lists for Santa!

  12. Oh wow, I had totally forgotten about looking through this catalog! Now, I just love to browse the ads for Black Friday from the paper- so much fun!

  13. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says:

    My oldest doesn’t really want toys anymore, which makes me sad. My little guy needs to look in this book, though.

  14. Franc Ramon says:

    This is a great way to promote by Toys R Us. It would also help kids be creative.

  15. I bet children would absolutely love to get this big Christmas book!

  17. kendall says:

    YES! I remember the excitement of seeing the book in the mailbox! Yay!

  18. Oh man, my son would love to look through this book. We haven’t even made his list yet, we are so behind.

  19. Ann Bacciaglia says:

    My kids would have loved this when they were younger. It is always fun to watch kids look at all the great toys.

  20. How fun. I don’t recall those, but I think it is important to have a list. As I say it is is the thought that counts. So put some thought into it and get someone what they’ve asked for instead of being selfish and getting them something you want to get them…

  21. Danielle says:

    They look excited! My son isn’t a big toy kid he apparently hates cleaning them up so he always refuses to ask for toys. He is however a lover of video games and I am sure they have a few in the Christmas book.

  22. Fi Ní Neachtáin says:

    How exciting for the kids to sift through the pages choosing what they’d like from Santa. I remember doing the same as a child 🙂

  23. Kae James says:

    This is a good idea. I remember as a child making a LONG list of things I wanted lol I’ll have to pass the tradition down to my little one.

  24. Freya says:

    haha I remember my daughter going through these books building her wish list.
    Great memories 🙂

  25. Oh yes, the big Christmas book. It was always so much fun to look through and pick out goodies.

  26. My kids literally spend hours for days on end going through this book. It’s funny and I remember doing that with the JCP and Sears books lol.

  27. We’ve gotten our Big Christmas Book! It was a always a sign of Christmas coming when I was a child. 🙂

  28. I need to hide the big book from my girls. LOL!

  29. Lynndee says:

    We’ve already received it too, but our son wasn’t as excited because he had already made a wishlist and what’s on his list were not in the catalog. 🙂

  30. Brandy says:

    It has arrived … I remember as a kid there was this one HUGE book for Christmas my Mom always got in the mail. Maybe it was Toys R Us?! I don’t know but I DO KNOW it had so many toys and such. I would go through it and circle all I wanted 😉

  31. Jacqueline says:

    Toys R Us and the FAO Shwartz catalogs were 2 things I stalked the mail for as a kid 🙂 IO would spend hours doing the same things yours are doing lol 🙂

  32. Rebecca says:

    Haha! That book is trouble. Not just because my son wants everything in it, but I do too! I love way too many of those featured products!

  33. Nichole says:

    How fun! It’s that time <3. My kids are still just too little to fully get the awesomness.

  34. Rebecca Swenor says:

    The Great Big Christmas Book sounds amazing for the kids indeed and easier for the parents. I don’t have any young kids anymore so I will have to share this with my sister. Thanks for sharing.
