I am super excited that I discovered GameStop KIDS at Southpoint Mall in Durham, NC on Black Friday. I couldnâ€™t understand how I missed knowing about it! However, Esther the awesome sales associate that assisted me during my visit assured me that I wasnâ€™t too far behind. The store had only been open a few days, which made me feel a little better. Being a mom that loves to game with my family and owning almost every game console and popular game that becomes available; this was a milestone I should have been on top of. My family frequents GameStop regularly to pre-order games, purchase games and gear up on gaming accessories. I know when I visit GameStop Iâ€™m there for a purpose and a purchase will be made. I see that GameStop KIDS will quickly become a frequent spot for me and mini me (my 4 yr old preschooler).
When you walk into GameStop KIDS you turn into a kid yourself. I found myself gravitating towards the Star Wars section because Iâ€™m a sucker for the brand… to the point I already own a XBOX 360 Kinect, but want the Limited Edition Star Wars 360 Kinect Bundle for Christmas. Also you canâ€™t resist the 2-foot-tall talking Star Wars Chewbacca. I want that too! Iâ€™ve been good SANTA; keep me on that NICE list! My teenage daughter went straight for the phone accessories because she loves to accessorize that phone of hers. I know that mini me would lose his mind in the store and just want EVERYTHING! The great thing about GameStop KIDS is that the games are rated E and the store doesnâ€™t carry any mature rated video games for adult audiences.
GamStop KIDS stores are opening 80 throughout the country this holiday season and itâ€™s exclusively for families with a focus on our KIDS! If the stores are successful during the holiday season, they may be able to stay open permanently. I know I want them to stay!

It was awesome considering it was after midnight on Black Friday. It also started a great “Black Friday” Twitter conversation on my timeline. I love social media!
