Shop for Kids and Kids-at-Heart at Kinder Haus Toys in Arlington!

In a world of online shopping, a great brick-and-mortar toy store can be worth its weight in gold. There’s nothing better than wandering through aisles of toys and games, waiting for just the right thing to catch your eye and jump off the shelf. Whether you’re shopping for a gift or looking for the next great game or puzzle for family night, a fabulous toy store can be an experience in and of itself. 

Here in Arlington, we’re lucky to have Kinder Haus Toys, an old-fashioned toy store that has been beloved in the community for decades. With colorful treasures hidden in plain sight in every aisle, it’s the kind of place that truly has something for everyone, kids and kids at heart. 


About Kinder Haus Toys


While Kinder Haus Toys has thousands of exciting and inspiring products, they have always focused on toys powered by imagination, not batteries. In fact, many of the toys they carry are made of wood and are educational, fun, and engaging. They are also doing their best to feature products made in the USA, though their selection of international brands features only the best in sustainability and quality. 

They’ve been serving the greater Arlington community since 1982, and their loyal fanbase made sure they returned with a vengeance following the pandemic. You’ll need to see the store in person to truly appreciate its magic!  



Kinder Haus Toys carries a huge variety of toys from brands you know and love and some you have likely never heard of before! If you’re looking for a toy to cuddle, you’ll find fabulous plush brands like Gund and Jellycat. Their book corner is full of stories just waiting for discovery, from beloved classics to contemporary tales of perseverance and acceptance. 

STEM kits and puzzles will challenge even the sharpest minds. Of course, they have shelves of LEGO products for collectors, enthusiasts, or anyone looking to try their hand at building something new. Budding artists will love the arts and crafts kits at Kinder Haus Toys, specifically chosen to inspire artistry and play. They also have a vast collection of stylish and high-quality clothes for babies and toddlers that parents and kids alike will love. 



With such a focus on community, Kinder Haus Toys also loves hosting special events that bring people into the store. They have at long last resumed their in-store storytimes on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so if you have a little one who loves a good book, bring them in! 

They’ll love hearing a story read by one of Kinder Haus’ finest readers/book specialists. Additionally, they host featured artists and authors occasionally, so keep your eye on their social media to see what may be next on the calendar!
