At the Toys"R"Us in Times Square

If you find yourself in New York City on February 5, you can join in on a community event for Skylanders Giants, held at the Times Square Toys"R"Us.

Basically, you'll have a chance to get a free Ninjini figure before launch, and nab a Starter Pack for $25, as well as take advantage of a buy two get one free sale. While the first two perks only sound reasonable for the biggest of fans, eBay sellers will probably be really interested in that last bit.

Evidently there's meet and greets too for kids. An Activision promotion and lots of kids packed into the same place -- sounds like a great day to head to Times Square, right?

WHEN: 

Tuesday, February 5. Activities and giveaways begin promptly 4pm. Toys"R"Us Times Square will be open during normal business hours (10am - 10pm)

WHERE: 

1514 Broadway at 44th StreetNew York, NY
