• Last day for shipping - December 19th • In-store pick-up always available!

     Where's Waldo? In downtown Portland, of course! 


The famous children's book character in the striped shirt will be joining us, and other local, downtown businesses for some hide-and-seek fun, this July! 

Playing with us is easy! 

• Waldo figurines will be hidden in local establishments around Portland's downtown (see list below). Our participants are close enough to one another that you can walk or ride your bike!

• Come by our store to pick up a "Find Waldo Local" passport. Then visit the participating businesses to find Waldo! When you find him, get your passport stamped/signed at each stop. 

The best parts - prizes and a party!

• The first 125 players who collect store stamps/signatures from at least 10 different businesses and turn their passports in to us win an "I Found Waldo" button and a $1 Off Waldo book coupon.

• Players who collect at least 20 stamps/signatures win an "I Found Waldo" button and a $1 Off Waldo book coupon, PLUS they are entered in a drawing for other larger prizes.

• Join us on Saturday July 28th from 5-7 for a pizza party to celebrate, and draw prize winners!
