“Part of Melissa & Doug’s appeal is as an antidote, if not a substitute, for all that screen time.”
The Gold Standard
“The couple's brand of low-tech, mostly wood toys has become the gold standard in early childhood play.”
Play With a Purpose
“Melissa & Doug toys flex every muscle of a child’s developing sense of identity – and the toys are often tested by their six children.”
“Melissa & Doug is set on making toys that are meant to be timeless, in an effort to preserve a cornerstone of childhood...open-ended play.”
What makes Melissa & Doug toys good for kids?
The American Academy of Pediatrics says toys that inspire hands-on engagement, imaginative play, and rich interaction are the best choice. Each of our toys is thoughtfully and meticulously designed to encourage this kind of learning and development.
What other toys and products do you make?
We make more than 1,000 toys and other products for babies, toddlers, and big kids. Categories include: Pretend Play, Arts & Crafts, Developmental Toys, Children’s Furniture, Games, Activity Pads, Puzzles, Plush, and more!
I've heard Melissa & Doug has a Happiness Guarantee, how does it work?
We stand behind everything that we make. That's why we've put our name (and our phone number!) on every product. If your child is not inspired, give us a call and we'll make it right.
Can I reach someone at Melissa & Doug if I still have a question?
Call us at the number on the back of our packaging. You’ll speak to a real, live person in our Connecticut office. We bet the human connection of a phone call will brighten your day!
