You usually hit Toys R Us expecting to find dolls, games, Legos and the like, but starting on July 31, you can walk into this toy retail giant and find the Amazon Kindle eReader. Adding to its growing array of electronics inventory, Toys R Us will carry various models including the Wi-Fi, 3G and Wi-Fi and Special Offers Wi-Fi versions (at various price points).
The Kindle is lauded as one of the best eReaders on the market, and has been the #1 bestselling item on Amazon.com for the past two years. According to Reuters, the toy store will offer a $10 Toys R Us gift card to anyone who purchases a Kindle between July 31 and August 6.
The Kindle doesn’t seem to be the typical product you’d find there, but perhaps Toys R Us is targeting the parents who find themselves aimlessly wandering through the aisles looking for toys of their own!
