When Maria Roa asked her then 3-year-old daughter, Amanda, how she wanted to celebrate her next birthday, she got an answer she didn't expect. Maria assumed her daughter would want a party theme that celebrated her favorite animated characters. Instead her daughter said she wanted her party to feature her favorite store, Walmart.
Months went by, and Maria assumed her daughter would change her mind. "Then I asked her once again the same question, and to my surprise her answer did not change," Maria said. "She said, 'My party will be decorated like Walmart, because you should decorate your parties like your favorite things, and mine is Walmart!'" She told her mom she wanted the decorations to feature the Walmart logo, the Spark.
