In 2007, Toys R Us ran a sweepstakes that awarded the first baby born of the year a $25,o00 savings bond.Â The first baby of the year that year was a baby boy born to Chinese immigrants.Â The baby was disqualified from the sweepstakes. Then, after a lengthy immigration debate, Toys R Us caved in and gave the baby and two other babies that were born to non-resident immigrants $25,000 each.
The story from 2007 shows that there is much to gain from being the first baby born of the year.Â Gift baskets, scholarships, and free medical care are all likely prizes awarded to the hospitals.
