This post came about today because of my observation of my children. Today is a Sabbath, rest day and the children have a couple of hours of free play time. My 7 year old daughter proceeds to bring out a stack of toys – she loves learning toys. As I watch her, I realize that most of the toys are Melissa and Doug toys. Toys that we have had since she was a baby, originally purchased for her older sister. And I observe that the toys are still in great shape, still usable, and still interesting, even though she has had access to them for many years. Her 4 year old sister frequently plays with them also.

If you can’t see too well in the photo, the toy that 7 year old T is holding is MelissaAndDoug – Snap and Sort. The other toys in the the stack include the cutting board (not sure of the exact name) and the Birthday Party. They still have all or the majority of their pieces, and they are all very sturdy and interactive.
The Snap and Sort teaches art, colors, sorting, dexterity and creativity. The cutting board teaches the real act of cutting with the wooden simulated fruit, bread and veggies. The girls love to play Master Chef Jr. with the set.
Lastly, the birthday party allows them to create their own cake and party and they play birthday all the time. Someone at this company really got into the heads of what kids would love and continue to use, year after year. When I am asked by family what to get for my children for a birthday, MelissaAndDoug toys are always a suggestion.
