On Wednesday 11th May the wait was finally over… Toys R Us announced their shortlist for their Toyologists programme and our family was featured!
Cue lot of squealing and amazed expressions! To say I was over the moon was an understatement! We had been shortlisted to 26 from roughly 150 entries, the wait was definitely worthwhile! Geoffrey certainly had his work cut out but it was lovely to see so many of my favourite bloggers mentioned too!
This is a fantastic opportunity for the finalists who will be announced on Monday (shortlisted families had to complete an intense questionnaire!) and the current Toyologists. Being able to thoroughly test and review the latest toys stocked by Toys R Us sounds like a dream come true and as if all our Christmases have come at once! I know if we do become finalists Olivia will be in her element (my husband and I aswell as we are both big kids!)
Monday will certainly be a busy day in our household as my husband will be arriving home and I have to play the dutiful wife by meeting him at the airport at 8am. I will also be meeting the lovely Nic from Sell It Baby, my wonderful CyberMummy sponsor. In-between I will no doubt be refreshing my emails every 10 seconds as to be announced as a finalist would be the cherry on top for my Monday!
