Purple Cow: The Toy Store with the Great Name, Bright Colors, and Friendly People

Store Front, Purple Cow Toys, Astoria, Oregon It's a treat to visit Purple Cow Toys at the corner of Commercial and 14th Streets. There's always something bright and cheerful in the window, and you never know what will be happening when you go inside.

Flat Stanley at Purple Cow Toys, Astoria, OregonToday Katie introduced me to Flat Stanley, who is visiting from New York State and plans to tour Astoria before returning home. Meanwhile, I'm sure Stanley is having fun with the plastic animals, plush Folkmanis puppets, Medieval plastic knights and ladies, plenty of animals, trucks, and unusual toys he's never dreamed of.

Purple Cow Poem at Purple Cow Toys, Astoria, Oregon Behind the counter you can't miss the poem for which the store was named. I always smile when I hear it, because at some point in my younger life, it was one of my favorites. The original "Purple Cow" poem was written by Gelett Burgess in 1895.

I can imagine kids would enjoy this place very much. I've not heard of the Purple Cow, but there's a Purple Pig in The Villages...

Re your comment on Ocala DP - I'm with you...didn't want to say too much, though. :-)

My wife and I love going into the children's toy stores. There are several in our area and we've hit them all.

A nice shop, I can spend some time there. For me a purple cow is, and always will be, a brand (Milka) of delicious chocolate!
