Let’s face it, toys are everywhere. We always see ads on TV, in our Facebook feed, or hear about the latest and greatest fad from our co-workers or kids at school.
Since becoming a new mom, I have asked TONS of other moms what their favorite toys are for their kids. I want toys that are educational and made to last a long time.
So, it’s official, the best children’s toys and puzzles are from the Melissa and Doug line!
Friends, they have EVERYTHING!
Arguably my most favorite item? Puzzles!
They are made with extra thick wooden pieces and bright colors. Some of them make sounds, some of them have the picture underneath the puzzle piece (as you can see from the photo) and some even have little knobs on the top of the pieces.
What a better way to encourage matching, hand-eye coordination, and of course, fun! They make for a great gift, too.
Our baby girl is playing with the dinosaur puzzle here, but you can find cars, animals, shapes, letters, and so much more.
Because I love Melissa and Doug products so much, I asked Dory’s Hallmark (located in South Park and North Park Mall) if they would give you all a discount. So guess what!? They said YES!
Mention the greywoodmama blog and get 10% off everything (Melissa and Doug) in the store.
This is only good at the Dory’s Hallmark locations. This offer is good through May 31, 2019.
Before you go, let me show you some of the awesome Melissa and Doug items they have!
And if you’re looking for larger items or something for a child a little bit older, they have a huge selection.
Another favorite of ours - the stacking toy!
