Toys”R”Us celebrates its mascot Geoffrey’s 69th birthday across Asia
09.10.2019 by LadyAlly
Popular toy, baby and education product retail in Asia – Toys”R”Us, will be celebrating its famous giraffe mascot Geoffrey’s 69th birthday across Asia. Formerly known as Dr. G. Raffe, Geoffrey made his first public debut as the Toys“R”Us official mascot in 1950. In the 1960’s he was renamed Geoffrey and became the official Toys“R”Us “spokesanimal”.
This year Toys“R”Us Asia is celebrating Geoffrey’s Day by bringing to life a birthday celebration squad, designed by children across Asia and based on the child’s own imaginary friends.
Walk into Toys“R”Us in Mid Valley Megamall or 1 Utama Shopping Centre, turn on your Facebook augmented reality filter and begin searching for the hidden birthday celebration squad, who will unlock Geoffrey’s Goofy gang to celebrate his birthday with him. Recycloud from Malaysia, Strawberry Princess from Hong Kong and Cupcakety from Singapore are just 3 of the 14 imaginary friends you can find, hidden all over the store.
At each store, the first 50 participants who successfully find and scan the imaginary friends will win exclusive limited edition Geoffrey premium goodie bags. Geoffrey’s birthday squad can be found at Mid Valley Megamall and 1 Utama Shopping Centre from 7 – 30 October 2019.
