Illinois residents upset over store selling adult diapers


Ah, back to the good ole' days. The days when you didn't have a care in the world. The days of naps, snacks and diapers.

Well, a company in the suburbs of Chicago is trying to bring the simplicity of childhood to adults in the form of diapers, according to USA Today.

Tykables, which recently opened in Mount Pleasant, Ill., has caused quite the stir among community members.

In a recent Mount Prospect village meeting, dozens of residents said they were concerned about the store's proximity to a school, as well as, the potential impact on property values.

"We at Tykables agree that we must all grow old, but we maintain that growing up is optional," Tykables' website states. "We bring to market items from our and your childhood in adult sizes. Starting with where it all began, diapers."

According to WGN-TV, Tykables sells most of its products online, but the company's store also has a nursery space which includes a giant crib, a high chair and a rocking horse.

Despite the many objections to the out of the ordinary store, Mount Prospect's mayor said the business isn't breaking any laws.
