I don’t Wanna Grow up, I’m a Toys R’ Us Kid! (1993)

After the 1980s, the presence of Geoffrey the Giraffe got spotty, but you could still catch him in all his costumed glory on the TV (depending on the season). Still it was nothing like the glory days of Geoffrey in the 70s and 80s.

I remember seeing these particular ads in the 90s and laughing at their attempt to “contemporize” the song slightly.
