NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – An adult store in south Nashville is a little too close to home for some residents. 

A mother contacted News 2 about displays outside of Jenna’s Toy Box store on Nolensville Pike.

Several displays outside the store show sex toys, which some parents think should not be visible from the roadway.

The store is right next to another adult novelty shop called the Lion’s Den. Both stores sit right across the street from Coleman Park and Community Center.

Parents don’t think their kids should be subjected to sex toys while they’re at the playground.

“It’s potentially awkward if your kids ask what kind of store that is. You don’t always have a great answer for them,” said one mother. “It’s very upsetting. You just don’t want that kind of thing around your kids.”

When contacted for comment, management for Jenna’s Toy Box gave News 2 the following statement:

“Jenna’s Toy Box has served the Nashville area since 1979 in each of our three locations. We abide by all rules and regulations imposed by metro. We are also regularly inspected by city officials. We are and have always been a couples store.”
