GameStop launching Kids concept stores

Retailer opening 80 temporary locations stocked with family-friendly options for the holidays

GameStop is celebrating the holiday shopping season by launching a new line of concept stores. The specialty retailer today announced that it will open approximately 80 GameStop Kids stores in malls throughout the US.

The temporary storefronts will stock a variety of family friendly gaming goods featuring brands like Skylanders, Angry Birds, Lego, Star Wars, and Minecraft. The first such store opened today in Grapevine Mills Mall, a stone's throw from GameStop's corporate headquarters in Grapevine, Texas. The remaining locations will be opening in the weeks to come.

A partial list of GameStop Kids products, which includes licensed merchandise for titles like Assassin's Creed and Halo, is available on the retailer's official site.

This is a great idea, especially for parents that don't even know where to begin to look for games that aren't suitable for their kids. Of course, I'm referring to parents that actually pay attention to what their kids are exposed to.
