carefully chosen toys and books

The Hawthorne Street Fair is August 17th, and we have some great events planned!


Kids at Heart Toys proudly presents the children’s events for the 2014 Hawthorne Street Fair! For the past 7 years we have had the pleasure of providing this kid-centric part of the already fantastic Street Fair. We love to give back to the community that supports us, and this year we have 35th Place and our back parking lot dedicated to bringing you the best children’s entertainment and activities!


On the main stage we’ll be featuring a ton a great acts that are sure to delight the whole family. Two of Portland’s most beloved children’s musicians, Mr. Ben and Lorna Miller, will invite us on their musical adventures, where we can all can sing and dance along! Portland’s favorite story-telling duo, Olive Rootbeer and Dingo, will entertain us with their antics, and a puppet show from Penny’s Puppets will be a story you don’t want to miss! 


Circus Cascadia joins us this year, with a fantastic array of events: everything from juggling, tightrope, and stilt-walking lessons to giant bubbles and clowns! Other activities include a birds of prey exhibit, musical crafts from Little Wing Oregon, stomp rocket demos, and Do Jump! Stilt walkers. Last, but certainly not least, our wonderful sponsers over at PDX Kids Calendar will be at the ready with a photo booth, and a prize wheel!

Tables for resting and eating will be available, as well as a diaper changing/nursing station!


Outside the store on Hawthorne is our annual Sidewalk Sale, with amazing deals on some of our favorite toys and books!
Then, don’t forget to stop in the shop and fill out a ticket – we’ll have a drawing for you to win gift certificates to the store! 


It’s our best Street Fair yet, and we are so excited to share it with all of you! See you then!
