According to a rumor from tech site modmyi.com, Toys 'R' Us is training their employees to begin selling Apple's iPad 2 in their stores, offering perhaps one of their most compelling reasons for not wanting to grow up.

"We received a tip this morning from a Toys "R" Us employee that the venerable children's toy store will begin selling the iPad 2 next month. Although there have been rumors in the past about Toys "R" Us possibly carrying the iPad at some point in the future, this is the first we've heard from an actual employee that an iPad launch at the toy store is imminent."

A product sheet, shown above, later made its way to modmyi.com, offering a look at key information Toys "R" Us employees should be aware of regarding the iPad 2.

Features such as the battery life, Wi-Fi and 3G, the A5 processor, and many advanced sensors are highlighted, as well as a list of accessories available at Toys "R" Us.

Toys "R" Us would join the likes of Radio Shack, Wal-Mart, and Best Buy as yet another outlet for Apple's iPad 2.

As Apple has noted many times in the past, the experience of being able to hold and play with the iPad has been paramount to its overwhelming success. Adding more outlets to that experience can only improve Apple's massive grasp on the tablet market.

CNET reached out to both Apple & TRU for comment and confirmation and have not heard back from either.
