The new Kinder Haus rocks!

Filed Under:

After taking a wrong turn in the Clarendon neighborhood of Arlington last weekend (it happens), I stumbled upon the brand-new Kinder Haus store - and boy is it fabulous.

Big, beautiful, sparkling clean, well-staffed, and stocked with a gazillion treats for kids of all ages - Our new favorite toy store! To take a virtual tour, click here.

It just so happens that Kinder Haus is celebrating its grand opening this Saturday, October 21 to coincide with the "Clarendon Day" event. Between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m., the store will do drawings for prizes every hour. Free balloons and free face painting are on the menu. Children's author Sue Pyatt and her illustrator Dana Saxerud will be signing their new book. And nine-year-old balloon animal prodigy Adam Olsen will work his magic for the crowd between 10:30 a.m. and 12 noon. For more on the "Clarendon Day" brew-ha-ha of food, music, and arts, click here.

Kinder Haus is also doing a Halloween Costume Contest (with prizes) for ages 3 to 12 on Monday, October 30 from 4:30 to 5:15 p.m. (also featuring face painting and balloons) - It's free, but they ask that you RSVP by calling 703.527.5929.
