Do you have a Father's Day gift yet? We asked our staff what the worst Father's Day gift they ever got their dad was. Megan said, "We got him socks. Plain, white socks for work. He said it was what he wanted. But, geez, that was a lame gift." Don't fall prey to lame gifts this year. Stop by Child's Play to get the best gifts for dad. We specialize in gifts for kids and kids at heart (a.k.a. your dad.)
