I got my child’s letter from New York Cares and just what I feared might happen is happening—I can’t find what the child wants. [Backstory: New York Cares has a program called Winter Wishes where you get a child’s letter to Santa and agree to buy the gifts.] I went all the way up to Toys R Us in Times Square, the biggest toy store I think, but no go. I got his first choice gift though, so it’s not the end of the world. I have a few places to try this afternoon.
Here’s a picture of the scary Toys R Us monster who skulks around in the doorway. If I was a kid I’d run screaming from this thing. It’s like seven feet tall. And orange.

that orange thing isn’t a monster, it (he) is geoffrey the girafe-the toys r us mascot.
how dumb !!!
hard to believe that the mother of all toy stores doesn’t have the item you seek.
pushed the submit button waay too fast-
meant to say that the concept of a seven foot, orange, talking giraffe is dumb.
can’t imagine that kids today would go for that thing.
Ha. Yeah. Plus the costume had seen better days. He was a pretty forlorn mascot.
