    The opportunity to make lots of cow and moo jokes, obviously.

    They check their privilege.

    They're also ran by the blind Triad head from San Andreas.

    This sounds like an Arthur reference.

    As Darkryt said, to make moo-ing jokes and make milk for your yummy cereal :) 

    Jokes and milk aside, we're actually a gender-neutral toy store (think hipster parents), but a lot of our fans are big-time TF collectors, so we thought - hey, why not sponsor TFW2005 and all things TF awesomeness...

    What does that mean, and how does it affect your business practices?

    I'm actually really curious.

    Oh sure :)  We didn't want to get too smarty and nerdy, but we work hand-in-hand with toy makers, parent groups, non-profits/schools/academia, and big organizations like the UN to promote genderless playtime. Half our team has worked at the UN and the other half has worked at Facebook, Hasbro, etc., and we were really tired of people around the world telling girls they couldn't play with science toys/Superman toys or boys with dolls.

    We work a lot behind the scenes with toy makers and content creators (think Disney) to push them to make cool role models for everyone. You may have seen a lot of female heroes in toys/movies lately, and both our products and community teams like to boast they had a hand in that :)  We are very careful what types of products we carry and who we work with as we are a mission-based start-up :)

    Ah, thank you for the clarification. An endeavour I fully support as well.

    People/children should pursue whatever they please.

    That's ... actually kind of awesome. And by 'kind of' I mean "really freaking awesome."

    Thanks for actually engaging people! I just wanted to ask, would you be open to some constructive feedback?

    The only thing that struck me is that the store's being promoted as a gender-neutral toy store (and that's a hugely laudable goal, that :D  ), but the very first Featured section in the sidebar is "Girl Power". Doesn't that contradict your mission statement? Might it make boys who like, say, MLP feel marginalised?

    Anyway, just a bit of hopefully constructive feedback, thanks again for engaging!

    The more stores to order from, the merrier.
