Save On This Year's Hottest Toys with ToysRUs & Duracell!

My kids think of the UPS driver like a second Santa Clause. This time of the year, the package deliveries are picking up and they know that sometimes those packages contain surprises for them. Last week a big box arrived that I knew had special items my kids were going to LOVE! As a mom, I've learned to use these deliveries to my advantage - "hey kids, you wanna see what's in this box, then you have to clean up ALL of the toys you got out today." It's amazing how quickly they can clean a room when there is an incentive offered! Well the kids got their toys cleaned up and I let them open the box to see what was inside...........


They were so excited over the new FurReal Friends Get Up & GoGo, My Walkin’ Pup and the Transformers Age of Extinction Stomp and Chomp Grimlock Figure that they started playing with them before they were even out of the box (and of course begging my husband and I to open the boxes). So, we grabbed the scissors and started freeing their new toys. Jacob was excited that the Transformers toy came with batteries already installed, so he immediately started stomping Grimlock through the house. Maggie's FurReal on the other hand, did not come with any batteries and she was rather sad that when she found the on/off switch, it still had no effect on making her toy work. Here her brother had this great toy that made noises and would light up and her puppy just sat there.


Luckily for Maggie we had Duracell Batteries! Daddy came to her rescue; he grabbed his screwdriver and had the Duracell batteries installed in minutes. We went ahead and put fresh Duracell batteries into the transformer too, as recommended.

My kids have had a BLAST playing with these toys. Grimlock is recommended for kids ages 5+, but both of my kids (2 & 4) have really been enjoying him. Jacob loves to walk around the house, crashing him into things saying, "DESTROY!" The FurReal Friends Go Go puppy is also adorable and my kids have enjoyed walking her through our house with her leash. She barks and sits just like a real dog!
