Today we are going to talk about one of our favorite brands: Melissa and Doug. They can be found in most stores like Target and Walmart and are also found in specialty stores. We have been given several quality Melissa and Doug toys that we will describe.
We were given both the Memory Game and Hang-Man from Nate’s sister. The blue covers are attached to the board and you just lift them up to reveal what is underneath. It is awesome to not have to be looking for missing pieces throughout the van! We travel a lot so these games have come in handy.
My kids love arts and crafts. We have used several of their supplies: crayons, large coloring sheets, Paint with Water sheets, and reusable stickers. These have provided hours of fun.
Here are some of the items we have used: The Reusable stickers are probably our kid’s favorite one. Each book has several different scenes that you can use to role play your story. There are girl and boy versions to all of these.
They also have great puzzles for toddlers. They are big and sturdy.
What I love about Melissa and Doug is that all of their toys encourage imagination and/or learning. They are fun to play and the child is gaining skills that will help them later in school. Some of the more educational or basic skills toys that we like are the Shapes Clock and the Lace and Trace Cards.
Lastly there are several Melissa and Doug toys that allow the child to role play. My girls played with the Magnetic Dolls for hours when they were younger. There are boy and girl versions of these also.
My only problem with Melissa and Doug products is that some of the toys have no lid. Once you open the packaging there is no lid to close it back up. We have had to put the pieces in baggies to keep from losing them. Other than that I am very pleased with the quality of these products.
