The name HearthSong was chosen to reflect core family values-the Hearth, a traditional symbol for the centre of the home, and song, a symbol of family spirit and of a special playfulness that parents and children enjoy together. With these values in mind, we select and design the best in kid-powered, screen-free toys and games that encourage active and creative play the whole family can enjoy. From their HugglePods® and exclusive play spaces to STEM and STEAM playsets and outdoor toys, HearthSong celebrates family and the experience of childhood.
The first HearthSong catalogue was printed in black and white, with pencil drawings of carefully selected toys and books and mailed from the home of founder Barbara Kane by her family. Since then, HearthSong has evolved into a nationally known and respected source for high-quality children’s toys, games, and crafts. Parents who found unique toys for their children decades ago tell us they’re now thrilled to be finding the same kinds of educational, entertaining toys to give to their grandchildren.
