Kids can download coloring pages from the store's website based on Olivia the Owl and Oswald the Octopus - the mascots of the store.
"The Owl and the Octopus represent the spirit of imagination and learning that exists within the spirit of every child – and if we’re lucky, we believe we can retain that spirit – that desire to continue learning and playing through our entire lives."
