Melissa and Doug Toys

Screen Shot 2016-03-29 at 6.00.18 PMI wish I was the genius who created the Melissa and Doug toy brand. I mean, moms, these toys are the cutest things ever. My children have numerous items and we have yet to be disappointed. The creative art toys, food play toys, and stackable snowman toy are by far my favorite Melissa and Doug items. Prepare to say, “Wow!” Here are some reviews of my favorite products.

  1. On the Go: Color Blast: My daughter is 3 and loves to color. She of course prefers markers over crayons. These coloring books come with the fun, magic markers. The color only appears on the paper pad provided. This means, no messy hands and no coloring on the walls. We have had the fairy design, and Johanna loved it. It kept her busy on long car rides and in restaurants while waiting.
  2. On the Go: Water WOW: These are also magical coloring pads. The trick here is that the markers only show color when water is added. Once the child has colored the picture with the magical pen, let it dry. Then, when dry the color disappears and your little one can color again. The only down side of these toys is the pens do leak a little, so be careful to not put too much water inside.
  3. Wooden Play Food: Moms, I can’t say enough about these sets. We started out with the slice and bake cookie set. Even my 1-year-old likes to play with the cookies. It comes with a hot pad, cookie sheet with velcro, play knife, play spatula, cookies, and sprinkle toppings. My kids can play with this for hours. Then, we got the Brew and Serve coffee set for Christmas. My daughter loves going with me to Starbucks, so now she feels like a big deal making me coffee with her own toy wooden Keurig. Recently, we purchased the Flip and Serve pancake set. Another cute food toy complete with a toy burner, plenty of toppings, and utensils. My only complaint about any of these toys is some parts are small, so be sure to check the ages. I don’t let my son play with the pancakes, due to the size of the toppings. I plan on purchasing more of these in the future. They provide hours of creative play for my kids.
  4. Snowman Stacker: My son loved the donut ring toys as a younger baby. Now that he’s a toddler, he’s moved on to this snowman. It is adorable. It still teaches little ones to put the rings on in order, but also it creates an adorable picture of a snowman in a scarf when placed on correctly. This toy is super sturdy and made of wood, as well.

So, as you can see, I could go on and on about how much I love Melissa and Doug toys. I am continually amazed with a new product I find. What products have you found that you love, moms?
