Plaintiff, a customer in defendant's store, was injured when, as she reached the intersection of two aisles, she was struck by a child riding a tricycle which belonged to defendant. There was no proof that defendant customarily permitted children to ride the tricycles displayed for sale; nor was it shown that defendant had authorized its use on this occasion. Held (two judges dissenting), defendant not liable. Barnes v. J. C. Penney Co., 190 Wash. 633, 70 P. (2d) 311 (1937).
