FYI, this is not the complete catalog. It's only around 20 pages of it, so don't bother downloading it if you are looking for the full book.

Got my book in the mail yesterday with $10 of $100 coupon. I was happy since I got nothing last year in the mail. Last year I really needed the coupons, but I'll take them this year. I saw a commercial on tv about a big 2 day sale on Fri & Sat. Anyone know anything about that?

I call BS. I tried this last year and got nothing. I think ToysRUs just sends them out randomly to people on their mailing list. I have their CC and rewards card and get other flyers but not toybook for whatever reason.

Got mine in the mail today. $10 off $100 coupon. I'm not sure how I ever got on the mailing list, considering I've only had my po box for about a year and always get TRU mailings.

I am after the pink one too. I think this will be the best offer for it. I called my store and they told me regular hours (10AM) on Sunday. On the back of the ad in says "Sale prices are effective online beginning at 9AM Eastern on the first day of sale"

I didn't get one this year and my local newspaper doesn't have it!! I'm in eastern middle Tennessee-does anyone know if today's Tennessean has a copy this year or has had one in the past?? They seem big enough but they don't carry the typical weekly ads for Toys R Us, so I wasn't sure. Or if anyone knows any Tennessee paper that has one? I can travel a little bit to locate something. Or do any national papers that come in the quarter machines carry them? Thanks so much for any information!!!!

I have a question about the Leappad bundle that states $65 worth of stuff(mr. Pencil cartridge and 5 apps). Are those 5 factory installed apps in addition to the 4 or can you choose your apps? TIA

Got my Big Book in Sunday paper w/$10 gift card with $75 purchase on back. It Excludes quite a few things.....namely electronic learning items. Wanted the LeapPad Explorer Bundle. Feel you MGST24 on Green only LeapPad. My TRU, Memphis, TN, said they only had it in green there too. They had about 10 in the store. Why wouldn't you make both. Guess green is gender neutral. They wouldn't let me put it on layaway. Said it was not a big ticket item.

I got one in the Tennessean today. I'm right outside of Nashville. The Tennessean has always had them in the past. I have a TRU near me and always get the weekly ads.

We have a TRU Express about 45 minutes from us and that city has a local newspaper. I had went in there the other day and asked if I could get a copy. THankfully they gave me a copy, but said that was the last one that they could give away. They told me that it would be in the newspaper. Well, I got up this morning and went to get a paper and there was no paper in it. :(

I went to TRU this morning right after they opened for the Leap Pad bundle to find out they only sell it in green. I decided not to get it for now and really hope for a deal on the pink somewhere. I did get some other deals though with coupons I found in the papers a few Sundays ago and I got 2 of the $4.99 stuffed animals for extra gifts or maybe to give away for toys for tots programs. As a whole I thought quite a bit of the stuff was either overpriced or they were better deals on the same stuff last year.
