5 UK stores to open their doors for midnight events on Force Friday (4th September).

In September 1985, Toys R Us® arrived in the UK and brought with them the most incredible must-have toys, games and merchandise from one of the UK’s favourite movie franchises, providing millions of Toys R Us kids and collectors alike with their most beloved memorabilia. 

30 years on, the excitement is building yet again as Toys R Us celebrate the launch of brand new toys based on the next chapter of the Star Wars™ Saga  –  ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’.

On Force Friday, Toys R Us stores around the globe will open their doors for special midnight opening celebrations, giving customers of all ages the opportunity to be among the first to purchase must-have merchandise, receive exclusive giveaways and immerse themselves in all things Star Wars.
