Why Melissa & Doug?

Melissa & Doug is a toy company that has been around for over 20 years. The company was actually started in the garage of Doug's parents' house and has since grown to be a brand loved by parents and children across America. They make high quality products, often from wood. Currently there are over 2,000 toys and games to choose from! Their toys have won numerous awards throughout the years. Safety is always a top priority and Melissa & Doug puts new toys through numerous tests before releasing them to the public. Additionally they test paints and coatings frequently to ensure that all toys meet or exceed government regulations. This is so important for the safety of our children.

Melissa & Doug Artist's Smock

A smock is a must have item when children do any sort of potentially messy craft or activity. Since paints and markers can be used with this art easel it is highly recommended that your child have a smock to keep their clothing clean and un-stained.

      This looks like fun. Put up the easel with a drop cloth underneath. Give your toddler paint. And then just step back. Of course you also have to be willing to wash the bath tub so your significant other doesn't kill you.

      Art easels are great for kids. Mine used to have one that they loved to use for painting. BTW, they are all talented as adults. :)
