Melissa & Doug
Melissa & Doug make over 2000 unique products for children of all ages. They are based in America and they make a wide range of toys and games that provide hours of fun and entertainment for children of any age.
Part of their range includes puzzles such as the Farm Chunky Puzzle which has seven extra thick and easily grippable farm animals to put into their right places and the Construction Chunky Puzzle which has extra thick wooden construction vehicles to place. If your child prefers a slightly more active toy then you might want to consider the Chomp and Clack Alligator push toy which aids early walking as your child pushes it along as they walk and it also helps to improve gross and fine motor skills.
Melissa & Doug do a wide range of kitchen toys and accessories to help encourage children to engage in role playing activities. Some of these items include a wooden cupcake set, a pizza party set which comes with 54 servings and a spatula so that everyone can enjoy a piece of pizza, a sandwich making set and a slice and bake cookie set, which includes 12 different tasty toppings.
Other great items in the Melissa & Doug range are designed to help children to develop number and colour skills, such as the abacus and the pound a peg game which has eight coloured pegs and a hammer so that children can keep banging the pegs in time and time again. For young children who like to engage in pretend play there is a Folding Princess Castle and a Folding Medieval Castle for boys and girls who like to play at being princesses and soldiers. These castles have removable turrets and balconies and a working drawbridge.
Whatever kind of toy your child likes to play with you are sure to find something within this range that will keep them entertained.
