Do You Notice Anything Different About This Toy Catalog? Because Kids Do.

Toys “R” Us officially moved up a few notches in the eyes of progressives by challenging the gender stereotypes that have lined its pages for years. The Swedish version of the toy store did at least. I definitely like the idea of letting kids choose what they want to identify with instead of having it spelled out for them. I really hope this catches on.

maybe some day toy stores in the US will realize that they can sell more toys when they aren’t marketing to “just boys” or “just girls”

FINALLY

Playful behavior

In recent years, biologists have recognized that birds engage in play. Juvenile Common Ravens are among the most playful of bird species. They have been observed to slide down snowbanks, apparently purely for fun. They even engage in games with other species, such as playing catch-me-if-you-can with wolves, otters and dogs.[77] Common Ravens are known for spectacular aerobatic displays, such as flying in loops or interlocking talons with each other in flight.[78][79]

They are also one of only a few wild animals who make their own toys. They have been observed breaking off twigs to play with socially.[80]

Apply this to all retail settings.

(also I don’t control sales tax you need to take that up with the state)

(protip President Obama doesn’t control it either)

I also don’t control which coupons are permitted and which aren’t. Take that up with the manufacturers who put them out and don’t bother to give us the proper computer codes.

Fun fact: Baristas didn’t raise the price of coffee, Starbucks did.
