Toys “R” Us is looking for a child 9-13 years of age to be its President of Play. The role will involve testing toys, including some not yet available to the public, talking about toy trends to the media, and representing Toys “R” Us at public events.
Toys “R” Us estimates eight appearances for 80 hours and a contract value for the position of $5,000.
To apply, kids are asked to submit a 1-2 minute video “that lets their playful personality shine, as they tell us all about their favorite toy, doll, gadget or game.” The deadline for that is tomorrow. By the end of the month, the company will choose a group of semifinalists to interview, and from them three finalists to participate in a public debate. The winner of the debate, and President of Play, will be chosen by public vote.
