Toys R Us unused logo

Recommended Posts

I was doing my  research on Toys R Us and I saw this. I think it would've been an upgrade cause Geoffrey is in the logo.

That's the one thanks. As for the logo I would've loved it one of Toys R Us downfall was Geoffrey was being phased out.

I don't know if it was THE logo, but I feel like I've definitely seen that around before. They still used Geoffrey, but definitely not as much.

It was on Toysrusinc.com so that's probably a corporate logo but some company phased out their logo for corporate like MLB team using cap logo as thier logo. As for Geoffrey granted I haven't seen much Toys R Us commercials but the 2017 no Geoffrey

I worked at a local Toys R Us this past Christmas (long story short: helped out a friend who is the manager). They used that logo on a lot of stationary. 

They brought in a Geoffrey costume and made a staff member wear it a couple of Saturdays, apparently the goal was to bring him back. I'm not sure if this just applied to stores in the Toronto area, all of Canada, or otherwise. 

I just remember my buddy saying that management hoped that bring back Geoffrey would help increase sales.....which may explain a lot, lol. 

 

Also, the head of that costume (neck and up) was stored in the lunch room and creeped me out, lol.

Never liked the reverse R.

Their whole wordmark just seems like they were aiming at kids but they didn't get it right.

It was an example of the same imitation-child writing as "I can has cheezburger?" decades later.

No, I beg to differ.

Cheezburger was to those who wanted to partake in a new wave of rebellion and decided to just throw caution to the wind.

Pooh's Huney was targeted to a certain age group that showed it was ok to be different.

 

Toys R Us are a corporate entity that sell toys to all children of different ages yet chose to target those really young ones by having the R facing backwards which made it look childish and simplistic.

Same as Rebel having an e facing backwards because they want to be seen as rebelling against the man, when they are part of the man in a grander scheme of things.
