Who doesn’t love freebies especially birthday freebies! Well Toys R’ Us has a really cool FREE Birthday Club. Geoffrey’s Birthday Club (the official name after Toys R’ Us mascot Geoffrey the Giraffe) gives kids some fun rewards to celebrate their special day.
About two weeks before your child’s birthday they will receive a birthday card in the mail. Any mail that is addressed to my kiddos makes them excited. In the card is a coupon that is for $5 off an item of $5 or more. That’s right the toy can be just $5 and they will take $5 off of it so you just end up paying tax! Oh and the coupon lasts for a couple months so it does not have to be used right away. The card also wishes your little one a Happy Birthday and tells them to be sure to stop by the store around their special day for some free goodies. When you go in the store for their birthday go to the customer service desk to receive their free crown and balloon. On your child’s actual birthday they will receive a call from Geoffrey himself wishing them a Happy Birthday! When you sign up for the Birthday Club you pick the best number to receive the call and the best time of day for when your child can answer it.
My kids love to receive their birthday goodies. Though my little one didn’t care too much about the crown he was way more into the balloon. Everyone in the store was so friendly as we walked around and wishing our birthday kiddo a Happy Birthday. And of course they love being able to pick out a new toy (and I love when I don’t have to spend much on a new toy).
Just a few more things about the birthday club:
- This is only for children ages 1 to 10
- It takes about 6 to 8 weeks for the enrollment process so be sure to give enough time before your child’s birthday
- You can submit an enrollment form in store or online
So have fun celebrating your child’s special day!
