The secret is out! Toys“R”Us Canada is thrilled to announce 12 year-old Aiden Hepburn as their new Chief Play Officer (CPO). The CPO will act as Toys“R”Us Canada’s spokesperson spreading the wonders of play to parents and children across the country - talk about a dream job! “When I found out I was the next Chief Play Officer, I couldn't believe it!” says Aiden. “What kid wouldn't want to be in my position? I get to play with and review the latest and greatest new toys! I can't wait to see what this year will bring!” Testing out the hottest new toys and guiding gift givers with top toy picks for every occasion are all in a day’s work for Toys“R”Us Canada’s CPO. The search was not easy. Since the hunt for a new CPO began in the summer, Toys“R”Us received hundreds of video applicants from all across Canada featuring children aged 10-12 hoping to snag the role. Each submission was a unique, personal presentation fit for any boardroom, individually crafted to show their passion for play and knowledge for all things toys. “Hiring for the Chief Play Officer position gets tougher every year as we have so many talented candidates to choose from,” said Vic Bertrand, CEO of Toys“R”Us Canada.
