The Nickelodeon Super Toy Run


Not only did you fantasize about winning this (and maybe still do), but you had a plan all mapped out as to where you would go to get the most and best toys and games in the maddeningly brief time Nickelodeon gave you to ransack that Toys R’ Us. And maybe you still do.  You’re one of the good ones.

  1. Always wanted to do this. I would’ve stuck with the action figure and video game isles. Never understood why so many kids spend most of their time pulling board games.

  2. Video game consoles, model rocketry, and toy trains. Yeah, that would have been my concentration.

    @ryan, yeah, board games?!? However, looks like this kid grabbed a bunch of baseball bats. Not bad.

  3. I often dreamed of winning a toy run, but planning my route wasn’t really an option. The only TRU store in the area was about 40 miles away & I never went there both because of the distance & because of their high prices. The first time I can recall actually setting foot inside a TRU store was when I was about 15.
