I was wondering if someone could help:

Toys 'R Us had a fully animated Christmas ad in the early-80s, that showed the family of giraffes walking & playing in the snow. I believe the jingle went like this: "The world's greatest toy store is Toys 'R Us, the biggest selection, Toys 'R Us. It's a Toys 'R Us time of year...." 

I've been looking for this commercial all over web, and I've haven't come close to finding it.

It would mean a GREAT deal if I could.

PS- Please contact me at

maybe will have to contact ToyRUs headquarters to find the ad company unless there is a collector out there..

Trivia,..did you know the voice of Geoffrey the Giraffe they use now is done by Tom Hanks brother...(maybe a little subliminal advertising to get the woody doll from Toy Story each time you watch?Sorry if I planted that seed in your mind now..)
