Melissa And Doug Toys Review And Giveaway

When selecting toys for the kids, I first look at the quality. My son can be hard on his toys and I don't want them to break right after I bring them home. Next, I look to see what they can learn from the toy. I love toys that are fun as well as educational.

Photobucket

Melissa & Doug have created amazing toys that meet all of my requirements. They started their company in Doug's parents' house in 1988 and have grown tremendously in size over the last 20 years. They put their time into offering products with tremendous value, quality, and design so their customers keep coming back.

Melissa & Doug sent us the Food Groups Toy.
Photobucket

It comes with four wooden crates full of the different food groups. Not only does it aid in teaching a well balance diet, it also helps children utilize their imagination while using it as play food. It is meant for children 3 and older, but Evan is 2 and loves this toy.
Photobucket

He has had a blast putting the food in bowls and bringing it to us. We've tried to show him which foods to choose for a well balance meal and he will put a meat and some vegetables in the bowls every time. He knew what some of the food was, but there were a few that he didn't. He has since learned what they all are and picks them up to tell me what it is. His favorite part is emptying the crates and sorting the food back out. He doesn't really know where they should go, but this is definitely an educational toy that can be used for years.

One of my favorite Melissa & Doug products is the easel they carry -- we have it, and it's very sturdy but easy to move around if we need it - folds up -- it's awesome! And three purposes, too, because it has a white board, chalkboard and space for paper roll. SWEET! Would love to see their playfood line too.

I love Melissa & Doug. We have a puzzle that is easy for Moose to manipulate.

But they have other cool toys like all of their fill & spills: toolbox, purse (which wouldn't go over well in my house but it's cute), sports bag. And my first wallet would be cool, too.
