Who Needs Nature When You Have “Toys R Us”?

What was suposed to be a marketing video for Toys R Us is looking more like a disaster. The video is basically telling kids that nature is boring and that they can only be happy when consuming more and more stuff they dont really need.

On a planet with limited resources, this is a really bad message!

  1. This guy is like Gob Bluth.

  2. OMG, I can’t even believe this. We are screwed.

  3. Get over it people. It’s a commercial for a toy store, it should be expected that they are going to promote sales of their products. Show me one child of that age that would rather learn about nature than play with toys. Also, playing with toys promotes natural growth in child development, making them think, use their imagination, problem solve and hopefully share (with other kids). I do recall seeing a bicycle and a telescope in the commercial as well. Both are great toys for kids, found where: TOYS R US. That is all.

    • Oh looks like we have a moron here who wants to defend the toy industry. If children were taught to value nature instead of worthless toys, we’d have more kids growing up to be scientists and environmentalists rather than adding to the already explosive number of materialistic consumers. We just might be able to save the fucking planet.

    That’s the problem people are trying to point out. You’re pointing out the obvious problem. It’s not about NOT having toys, that won’t change……its about changing kids minds early to reject any kind of thought other than toys. Think bigger.
