Calling all Toys "R" Us kids in Atlanta and Chicago! The fun folks at Candytopia, who you know from every amazing candy-filled Instagram photo you’ve seen in the last year, are teaming up with Toys "R" Us to create an all-new, totally immersive pop-up just for kids—and just in time for the holidays. The Toys "R" Us Adventure promises to be just as Insta-worthy as it’s Candytopia counterpart. Selfies with Geoffrey!
Explore over a dozen toy-filled playrooms and interactive installations at this indoor playground. Expect a disco castle, a Schleich brand safari, and a three-little pigs' house-building challenge. Your little Paw Patrol fans will get transported to a life-size Adventure Bay, complete with the Lookout Tower and slide, where they can play with Ryder and the pups. And all generations of Toys "R" Us kids will be happy to know that beloved toy store's mascot, Geoffrey the Giraffe, will be on hand for all the fun.
Featuring toys from these favorite brands, Melissa and Doug, and more, the holiday pop-up from Tru Kids Brands, the parent company of the bankrupt (and closed) toy store will be filled with things to play with (and to spark those holiday wish lists, no doubt). A ball pit and candy treats throughout the experience will likely have the whole family grinning. It's all meant to evoke the whimsy and fun of childhood, but there's a gift shop attached to it, too, of course!
