Default Toys R Us Trots Out the iPad 2 for Spoiled Kids

Haters will view this as more proof that Apple's iPad tablets are nothing more than toys and not computing devices to be taken seriously. We don't agree with that assessment, but for what it's worth, Toys R Us joins a growing army of retailers who now carry Apple's second generation slate, the iPad 2. Not every Toys R Us location is participating in the iPad frenzy, but it is available in hundreds of toy store locations across the U.S., T.G. Daily reports.

Authorized sellers of the iPad 2 now include AT&T, Best Buy, Radio Shack, Target, Toys R Us, Walmart, and of course the Apple Store. By adding Toys R Us to the list, Apple opens up to a whole new demographic, that of spoiled kids who already own an iPhone 4 and iPod touch and aiming for an Apple triple play.

It will be interesting to see what other tablets Toys R Us chooses to carry. Selling tablets in a toy store underscores just how flexible and far reaching these devices are.

To find out if your local Toys R Us is participating in the launch, see here.

Yeah. I remember going there a couple times to buy LEGO when I was a kid, and had to walk away because of the disappointing prices :P
