Target Announces QR Code-Based Shopping

In anticipation to the stressful holiday shopping, Target has announced it will set up a special in-store area featuring 20 of the most popular toys all tagged with QR codes beginning October 14th.

Parents can simply scan the codes with their smartphones or tablets for an instant, secret mobile shopping. That should keep their children guessing whether Santa Claus has presents for them. It also lessens the stress of having to muscle in through throngs of shoppers fighting over the same Furby.

But first, they have to install Target’s app to scan the codes and opt-in for the free shipping anywhere in the United States. The list of 20 QR-tagged toys include Hasbro Playskool Rockitivity Walk ‘n Roll Rider, Just Play Bounce Bounce Tigger, the 2012 edition Furby, Hot Wheels Wall Tracks Power Tower Track Set, a Target-exclusive LeapPad2 Explorer bundle, the Nerf N-Strike Elite Hail-Fire Blaster, Hasbro’s Spider-Man Dual Action Web Shooter, the Beyblade: Metal Fury Destroyer Dome, Easy Bake Ultimate Over, and Lego’s Super Heroes Batwing Battle Over Gotham City set.
