Meet Melissa and Doug! Meet the Sponsors Monday! I am excited to spotlight Melissa and Doug… I love these guys! Melissa and Doug are real people who got their toy business started in a very humble way. Doug was too embarrassed to ask Melissa to marry him, so he asked her to start a business with him instead. Don’t you just love that? These guys make the kid of toys that grandparents would be proud to see we bought for our kids! High Quality, purposeful, educational and fun! Here are some of my ABSOLUTE FAVORITES! Melissa and Doug Wooden Shape Sorting Clock This is my current favorite!!! What a fun way to allow your children to learn all about the the face of an analogue clock! This multi-sensory clock face has all the fundamental topics you will need to address reading an analogue clock. I love that it even has the “half past”, “quarter past”, and “quart to” phrases! Standard Unit Blocks You have to trust me on this one. Your kids will love plain blocks! This is the opitome of the classic toy. My boys build towers, castles, obstacle courses, and traps using their blocks! Fold and Go Barn Isn’t this the sweetest? My boys have outgrown their play-set days. (I was forced to say that under duress. They will still break out cool toy sets and make believe, especially on rainy days!) Shape Sorting Cube My second oldest son loved this toy when he was a baby! Sturdy, brightly colored, and loads of fun. My kids absolutely LOVED shape sorters. Honestly, I do not think anyone can do much better than Melissa and Doug toys. They are some of the highest Quality toys available for our kids and grandchildren. (No, I do not have grandchildren yet, but someday I will:)) What is your favorite Melissa and Doug Toy?
