    i found this clip of two memorable ones from the late 80's........especially because of the two ninja turtle costumes and the guitar carrying white kid, dancing like he's half retarded.

    ahhh, gotta love the 80's with the children rappers singing, "I don't wanna grow up, don't wanna grow up. I wanna be a Toys R Us kid!"

      Yup. I remember the old Toys R Us commercials. Only the ones from the 90s. "I don't wanna grow up" they say. My brother use to think of Toys R Us as "The Camel Store." He didn't know that was a giraffe.

        When I was a kid, they would sometime show Toys R Us commercials in-store on a TV near the entrance.

          I miss the old Toys R Us. I remember playing Sega and Nintendo games in the store and buying Ninja Turtles with my mom if I was good. Toys R Us is still a great store but its not the same. TRU is still the best place to go to find those hard to find Transformers or G.I. Joes even if you have to pay a dollar more for good selection...

                I guess these were the kids that became wiggers in the 90s

                Yes I remember these. They were trying to make the "I don't want to grow up" song more cool.

                Yes this is it. It was made in 1976 and played until 1980. I remember it back in 1978 at the age of 2.

                    It really brings back the days asking mom to buy me a toy from Toys R Us just by watching those commercials.

                      I have a 1996 Toys R Us commercial that shows some members of the famous 1982 ''Toys R Us Kid'' commercial but, all grown up.
