Recently, the Toys R Us store located on 1055 Woodland Road, Wyomissing Pa advertised a free lego give-away event at the store if you attended Saturday, February 8th between 12:00PM and 2:00PM. The event advertised that if you child came to the store they would receive the lego give away, however I arrived at 11:50AM and there was a line out the door (litterally) in 20 degree temperatures kids are waiting with parents to receive the give away. I waited with my 7 year old son as did alot of other parents, I would say a hundred or more families.
We waited for 30 minutes are more and finally got to the table where the give away was taking place. Upon arrival the child and parent in front of me were being told that the event was over and that was it, I was saddened, but my son was very upset. I quickly counted the people that were in front of me and behind me and calculated less that 50 children or families had received the lego give away. I questioned the store sales clerk and was told that she knew very little and that was it, in the meantime people were receiving raffle tickets to win a free lego set.
Confused by how that could be it after only 50 children receiving the free give a way I stood around waiting for a manager or someone to find out why they would promote such an event and then turn around and only have a few give aways. Then it came to me, they had enough for only a few people and then expected people to stand around or shop waiting for the raffle.
This is clearly a scam to get people in the store and marketing to children. How shameful and disappointed I am in Toys R Us to make children wait in the freezing cold while knowing they did not have enough toys to give away. I can't believe that this can go on without anyone holding these turds to account for lying to kids and parents to sell product.
Something should be done to right this!!! It is a SCAM!!
