Providing the reason for the request, according to the article (which then goes on to discuss the psychology of trust), made all the difference in the world. Point: Disney Store.

She soon finds herself in the magical land of Odd where their friends Isabella, Dr. Doofenshmirtz, Jeremy, Buford and Baljeet are remarkably like the characters in L.
