[Rabbits] Kids buying stuff ---- was:Re: Gamer bar --

Just thought I'd share- my middle child is obsessed with coins and insists on being paid for work in coins and won;t trade them bills. So when he buys stuff at the game store he brings a bag of coins. Poor Brice hated counting it all.. but they didn't have to go get change/coins from the bank all week. It was just an almost-humorous-story I thought I'd share.  If a new person comes to the register they always know when my son has been there to buy something.
Funny- such a big store and only  one register...

It's true.  Children (by proxy) are a -huge- market -- for
entertainment purposes, often much larger than the adult market.
There's a reason that most action movies cater to 13-19 year olds, not
25-40 year olds.
