About Taylor O'Donnell: As a child, Taylor could generally be found with her nose in a book, coloring away in her notebook (and once on the wall — sorry mom!), or acting out epic dramas (ok, recreating soap operas) with her stuffed animals -- anyone would agree that she certainly had an active imagination. As an adult, Taylor loves that every day, she gets to cultivate the imaginations of children through toys by working her dream job at Toys"R"Us! Well that, and being able to play with all of the hottest toys herself!
