Parents bring children to bookstores to take them to the children's book section, but, just as candy is in the same aisle as cereal in the grocery store, children demand toys as they go to or exit from the children's book section.
Location, location, location.
Yeah, even dumb people used to read books.
Wait, was the store made of LEGO? Cause that would be a neat gimmick.
Why wouldn't Build-a-bear" count as a standalone toy store (and yes, there is one at Tysons.)
