When you are looking for toys and gifts, stop by at Kids at Heart Toys for amazing service and fantastic inventory.


Located on Hawthorne Blvd, they are a super friendly bunch and will help you find what you need.


Why shop at Kids at Heart Toys?


I am a big supporter of small businesses ( especially being one myself!). I truly believe that changing the world starts with small acts like supporting people in your community, taking care of your neighborhood and neighbors and doing small acts of kindness. 


Shopping from a small business is one of the kindest things we can do as a community. Sure, Target is heaven on earth and I love spending my hard earned money there, but I know for a fact that every time I shop locally I make someone smile.


Just like every time someone books a photo session with me, my heart sings. Because we are just regular people trying our best at running a business without the financial support huge corporations have.


When it comes to buying gifts for kids’ birthdays I generally try to support a small business. Especially if you are buying things like LEGO, puzzles, or board games, you will generally find that the prices for those items are around the same, no matter where you buy them from. So why not support a smaller and more local business?

Store Loyalty card and other perks


Kids at Heart Toys has an amazing loyalty program. You get a loyalty card and they will stamp the amount spent in every purchase. After 12 stamps they will give you a credit with the average amount spent. I will definitely be getting one!


Another great perk, this time for grandparents. On Wednesdays grandparents get 10% off their purchases. The perfect way to spoil your grandkids a little more.


Lastly they do a perk specially for the little ones. If you sign up for their birthday postcards, your kid will receive a $5 gift card on the month of their birthday.
