I've been wondering whether the advent of fogdog, loudcloud and, er, that other one heralded a new trend in rhyming domain names. Sounds like a job for whotoy.

I love that it's on the Nasdaq site too. It really looks like a parody. There both appear to be (ugh) "bricks and mortar" though.
The acquisition of Syosett, N.Y.-based Noodle Kidoodle will immediately increase Zany Brainy's revenue and store base, each by about 50 percent. The combined company will operate 163 stores across the country, but expansion plans are expected to push that to 193 by the end of the year.The companies, both founded in the 1990s, operate similarly by selling toys and games that often cannot be found at the larger chains, stressing non-violent and gender-neutral products. The stores contain play areas and offer scheduled activities for children.

Sweet, reduplicate (scroll to bottom) company names.

Additionally, I can't wait for Yahoo! to buy Google and become Yahoogle! (oddly, someone has anticipated this...Yahoomazon is not taken, however)
