A few weeks ago when I was in the library, I noticed they installed two things along the front of the check out counter. One was a giant mirror. The other was this -
Isn't this neat. I know both were for children, but I bent down anyway and played with it for a few minutes. It was a slow day, no one else in line. I thought this was a rather clever idea. They should put these in banks too, or other places mother's of young children have to stand in line. Of course there might then be the child you have to pull screaming from the toy to get out the door, but at least he/she will be intertained during the transaction.
