Lakeshore listened.

Tucker received a set of wooden Lakeshore Store Doors from Santa.  He set to work building a shopping center using blocks and street signs and then made his Lakeshore Block Play People act as customers.  He's been partial to the little girl in the wheelchair for a few years now and seemed a little disappointed that she didn't fit through the Toy Store door.  Andy quickly redirected him, and they built an alternate entrance with a wheelchair ramp.  But his short-lived frustration prompted me to write a quick note to Lakeshore Learning Materials to let them know about what we'd discovered.
Less than a week ago I sent that note, a simple suggestion to their customer service department, and today we were on the phone with someone in California who said the president had met with the research and development team and wider store doors were already in the manufacturing process.

You and your kids keep making this world a better place.... thank you, Tucker, and Jenni and Andy and Lakeshore!

Jenni Baby,

Actually, ADA would require an entryway that allowed two wheelchairs, traveling in opposite directions, to pass each other...ramps too...now incorporated into all modern building codes.

Grandma Sandy has gone through the Pizza and Bakery "Store Doors" so often that she no longer fits. Should I contact Lakeshore?

This touched me in so many ways...that Tucker noticed and was worried about it...and that they did something about it. Love, love, love this.

P.S. What a cool play set!!! I've never seen those.
