Not a big deal, but nice to see. Laytners, the home furnishing store next to Austin House, is selling somewhat hip toys this Christmas. A rack is set up with Magic 8 Balls, wooden stuff, mind-challenging kids games. Not the crap you'd see at Rite-Aid or a card shop.
Laytners might need to rethink its strategy as it never looks busy in there. I like the store and have gotten lots of stuff there, but I guess people around here prefer Target.
Hopefully the toys will stay and Laytners will transform itself into a child-friendly toy shop/candy store or something. There is very little for kids to do around here in winter.
