Freebie time! On Sunday, May 3rd, Toys R Us is hosting a LEGO Star Wars Wookiee gunship make and take event starting at 11am until 1pm. This event is in-stores only.
Toys R Us' description of this event is actually slightly confusing because in the title, they state: "May The 4th Be With You!" but it's actually being held on May 3rd. So don't miss it by thinking it's Monday when it's actually this Sunday.
For those of you who don't know, the reason they incorporated "May The 4th Be With You" into the promotion of this event is because May 4th is the official Star Wars holiday. Don't expect to get a day off work but it's still a cool tidbit to know, especially if there's a huge a Star Wars fan at your office. In case you're wondering why May 4th was selected as the official date, it's because of the famous: "May The Force Be With You" slogan.
With regards to Toys R Us' event, it's for children ages from 4 to 14 years. Children will be showed how to make a LEGO Star Wars Wookiee gunship, which they will then be allowed to take home with them -- yay freebie!
Given that this event is scheduled from 11am until 1pm, it would be my assumption that you could arrive any time within that time frame for your child to learn how to make the Wookiee gunship, especially since only one model is being given per child and it's only while quantities last. Calling your local Toys R Us store to confirm the details would definitely be a good idea, especially to make sure that it is indeed being held at your store before pumping up your child (or children) for it), especially if you can't get there in time for the beginning of the event. This could definitely make for a great outing, especially if you invite your child's friends.
Keep in mind that this event won't be held at Toys r Us Cedarbrae Mall and Express stores.
