My Top 5 Melissa & Doug Toy Recommendations

#1 Blocks

Blocks are open ended toys that inspire imagination and can be used for so much play. The Standard Unit Blocks are a great for hands-on math learning, too. This set has 60 blocks and is recommended for ages 3 and up. Smaller blocks would work well for younger children.

#2 Wooden Car Carrier

My son loves the Car Carrier Truck & Cars Wooden Toy Set. Load and unload the cars on the truck. The top level easily lowers so the cars can drive up the ramp.

#3 Puzzles

Puzzles, puzzles, and more puzzles. You can’t go wrong with any of them, but here a few of our favorites. There are wooden puzzles available for a range of ages.

Large Farm Jumbo Knob Puzzle

See Inside Alphabet Peg Puzzle

#4 Lacing Beads

Lacing beads are great fine motor practice and tons of fun. This set can also be used for stacking, shape learning, numbers practice, patterning, and imaginative play. These are recommended for ages 3 and up {I’m guessing because of the string}.

#5 Easel

The Deluxe Wooden Standing Art Easel is adjustable in height and includes a dry-erase board, chalkboard, locking paper-roll holder, child-safe paper cutter, and four easy-grip clips. Easels help with pre-writing skills like proper pencil grip and are all around great art surfaces.
