Snow Shoe boy wins Nickelodeon shopping spree at Walmart
DUBOIS, Pa. —
A Centre County boy was one of three grand prize winners of a toy shopping spree.
Nickelodeon teamed up with Walmart to create the shopping spree, a family-style reboot of the 90s game show Toy Run.
Keegan Stanisic, 6, of Snow Shoe, participated in the challenge at DuBois Walmart Tuesday morning.
Stanisic had three minutes to run through the aisles and grab as many toys as he possibly could.
"I just had to run and get as much as I could," Stanisic said.
Officials of Nickelodeon said they're now talking to parents who grew up watching Nickelodeon's Toy Run.
"We brought back the Toy Run because it's every kid's dream come true and that's what Nickelodeon is all about," said Rebecca Blumberg of Nickelodeon.
Stanisic was cheered on by his family and Walmart employees.
"Our associates were really excited that we got to be part of something that was much bigger than just the DuBois Walmart Supercenter," said Store Manager Howie Allen. 'We’re part of a bigger purpose and mission and it was great for us.”
Stanisic and his mom filled up several shopping carts of toys worth $3,000.
“I picked up some Lego sets, Nerf guns, a little doll for my cousin and a lot of stuff," Stanisic said.
Stanisic was selected from more than 150,000 entries. Other winners are from Wisconsin and Texas.
Stanisic's mother said it's an experience he will never forget.
She said her son will donate some of his toys to kids in need.
“This is a lifetime memory, I mean how many kids get to run through a toy aisle and get to grab what they want for nothing," said Raquel Stanisic.
The full video of Stanisic's shopping experience will be out by mid-December on Walmart and Nickelodeon's social media pages.
