Imagine heading down the toy aisle and seeing the perfect gift for your niece or nephew living in another state. The thought of having to ship it to them after buying it in the store is much less appealing than buying it online. You may even come up to an empty shelf as the store had sold out of that one special toy your child asked for this holiday season.

What if the store had a QR code that sent you directly to where you could buy it and have it shipped to them hassle-free? Would that make life a little more convenient for you? Target is betting on this by putting QR Codes next to the top 20 toys of the year.
