Toys"R"Us' Toy Book - Launching on November 4th, this 64 page book is jam-packed with exclusive deals, amazing savings and every plaything

easy-to-use 'toy finder' navigation system, which categorizes toys
based on colour-coded themes, such as Preschool, Toddler, Imagine,
Create, Explore, Construction, Learning, Girls, Boys, Boardgames,

Toys"R"Us Express Stores: Toys"R"Us Express stores carry many of the same products as a full-size
store, but in a smaller scale. These Express stores, many of which are
located in areas without a full Toys"R"Us location; provide local
residents with easy access to the latest toys, games and more
throughout the holiday season. With greater accessibility to the toys
kids want, customers can discover the joy of play easier than ever.
Shoppers can visit the Store Locator on Toysrus.ca for the Toys"R"Us Express Store in their neighborhood.
Online Wish Lists - To help grant gifts the easy way this holiday season, Toys"R"Us offers
an online gift registry called "Wish List". Using Wish List, parents and kids together can create a tailored list
of toys based not only on what the child wants, but on his or her age,
interests and abilities. Simply email the Wish List to family, parents
and gift givers and it becomes a great resource in their quest for the
perfect present. Additionally, Toys"R"Us is running a 'Wish It and Win
It' contest beginning on November 4th, where customers can enter to win up to $1,000 worth of toys on their
wish lists this holiday season!
Gift Finder - Buying the perfect gift just keeps getting easier! Gift givers who may
be overwhelmed with the broad selection of toys available at Toys"R"Us
can visit Toysrus.ca/giftcentre to receive a list of gift suggestions. After answering questions about
the recipient of the present, the Gift Finder will suggest the best gifts for every age and budget. Whether the
child's a feisty fashionista or pre-teen hipster, the Gift Finder will
