Get ready, set, go! for this thrilling competition that invites contestants the chance to raid shelves for their favourite toys in an epic race against the clock.

A first for South African kids, Nickelodeon’s Ultimate Toy Run with Toys R Us is certainly not for the faint hearted: the experience requires jet-powered speed, guts, and a winning attitude – as well as the smarts to identify the most coveted items in a race against the clock.
