Melissa & Doug Toys
Melissa and Doug Bernstein began creating toys in Doug's parents' garage in 1988. Their first wooden toy came out in 1991. Now, some 20 years later they are known world-wide for their high-end quality wooden toys. These toys are built to last which makes them a good value.
These are the kinds of toys parents can feel good about giving their children and grandchildren. They are very durable and will be something you can hand down from generation to generation.
Just when I think I've seen all the varieties they make, I find something new that's even cuter than the last toy. I've assembled some of my favorites. These toys will entertain children for hours at a time as they play make believe. All of the toys I have featured here are recommended for children 3+ years old.
Doesn't it make you want to be a kid again?
