Toys R Us The Great Big Christmas Book

Toys R Us The Great Big Christmas Book

+ $50 Toys R Us Gift Card Giveaway! 

Every year, my girls look forward to pouring over the toy catalogs & making their Christmas lists. They’ve been waiting for the day that Toys R Us would come out with their yearly catalog – The Great Big Christmas Book! This seems to signal the start of the holiday season, at least at our house…maybe your house too? When mom is thinking about all the shopping that needs to happen between now & Christmas {only 48 days from today!} & the kiddos are starting to think of all the fun times the holiday season will bring.

The Great Big Christmas book from Toys R Us

The Great Big Christmas Toy Book from Toys R Us is their annual toy catalog, featuring the best toy deals of the season! There are 80 pages of toys and if you’d prefer to look online, just head to Toys R to view The Great Big Christmas book via your computer or mobile device. When you look at the book online, you can filter it by age preferences, play theme, licensed character & more to make it fast to find what you’re looking for in gifts.

Toys R Us also made it easier to search through paper-version The Great Big Christmas Book  as they have a table of contents at the beginning, with the toys broken down into these sections.

The Great Big Christmas Book Table of Contents:

  • Hot Toys – we’ve got the Top 15 hottest toys at Toys R Us listed for you
  • Imagine & Wonder
  • Dream & Pretend
  • Sparkle & Shine
  • Create & Explore
  • Build & Collect
  • Rev Up & Roll
  • Action & Adventure
  • Energize & Entertain
  • Clip & Save (these are 3 pages of coupons!!)
  • Rewards R Us Information
  • FAO Schwarz – selection of toys from FAO Schwarz that are available at Toys R Us

The Great Big Christmas Book Catalog

Of course, my girls – they didn’t need the table of contents as they planned to go through the book, page by page, so they wouldn’t miss a single toy….and then started the process again. My older daughter just loves to read these toy books over & over, while making her lists.
