Imitation is the Sincerest form of Flattery
Tru Kids is bringing back Toys R Us as a Fundemonium.
I’m amused that the venture capitalists are touting as a major retail innovation something Fundemonium has been doing for 15 years.
Two Toys R Us stores will open in Texas and New Jersey for the holiday season. An article about the new Toys R Us states,
“The new Toys”R”Us stores will serve as must-visit destinations for kids to learn, play, and fall in love with the latest and most popular toys, and for parents to have fun with their children and ignite their own childlike sense of play. The stores will be highly interactive with new events and activities every day…”
Here is part of a review from a recent Fundemonium visitor:
“Toy store meets hobby store meets kid activity center– this place has it all! There are little toy sample stations sprinkled around the store to test and play with the products… there is an RC rental with large speedway to race around which is super cool. A fenced in pretend play area with kitchen, dollhouses, magnet play, etc. There is also an area to hold birthday parties.
Truly a special place to find that perfect gift!”
When it comes to igniting a childlike sense of play in adults, Fundemonium sees that all the time. Check out these guys riding our EZ-Roller and Giddy Up Pony.
A big difference is that Fundemonium is community-based and supports people of all ages gathering together to share the FUN of playing games, building models, racing cars, and using their imagination. Another article about the Toys R Us return reveals the dark truth,
“Toys R Us…stores will use b8ta’s model of charging product vendors for space in the stores,”
meaning the play experience will be driven as a manufacturer advertisement. At Fundemonium the play experience is driven by YOU.
So don’t wait until this winter and travel across the country to experience a childlike sense of play with new events and activities. Come to Fundemonium right now to experience your local must-visit destinations for kids.
