Hello there! First, a big thank you to everyone who stopped by for our Calico Critter Fun Day & Easter Celebration!  Everyone had a great time searching for eggs in the store!  And, Mrs. Fisher Cat wanted us to let everyone know how much she loved the hugs and waves everyone gave her!

And, now for something new!


NW Kids is having a "Color Me Cover" Contest!  Do you or your kids love to draw, color or paint?  Want to have your artwork featured on the cover of NW Kids magazine?  If you live in the Portland area and are in grades preK-6, be sure to enter this awesome contest!  You could win one week of summer camp at My Masterpiece Art Studio or Oregon College of Art & Craft, a family membership to the Portland Children's Museum, 10 hours of art-focused child care from The Art Cubby, deluxe craft kits from Child's Play and more!

To enter the contest, pick up a cover page template from Child's Play or any other participating sponsor, draw a picture about the things you love most about summertime in Portland, then scan and email your entry to NW Kids!

And, if you're totally into contests, we still have "Name the New Calico Critters Koala Family" entry forms at the register!

Have a bright and shiny day!
