Have you ever bought any items from Melissa & Doug or wondering if they are really any better than just any toy you could pick up anywhere else? I am here to tell you they are better! Recently, I was given the opportunity to write a review of any of their products up to $50.00. I was able to order four toys using my $50 credit.
This first item I ordered is the Deluxe Pounding Bench Toddler Toy. My two-year old loves it! The way the toy is build every time one peg is hit the one on the other side raises back up. That way there are always pegs to hit. It is built very well….trust me it took a beating! Since he first played with it he has been toting it around the house and had dropped it several times. The toy is holding up very well and he still enjoys playing.
The second toy is the Shape Sorting Cube Classic Toy. I remember having one of these toys as a kid and really enjoyed it once I figured it out. I remember feeling smart and proud of myself! The box is made of wood and very sturdy. You can see Zack is concentrating very hard to try to figure out when the shape will fit through. He played with this toy for a long time and was enjoying the challenge presented to him. He did figure out also very quickly how to slide the one side open to get all the shapes back out.
The third toy is the Vehicles Mix ‘n Match Peg Puzzle – 9 Pieces. Zackery is only two so this toy seemed to present more of a challenge for him. Which, I think is wonderful! He could get the shapes in but, would not always get the correct color. So, I was helping him to see that the colors also matched-up. Very useful for teaching him his colors!!
The fourth toy I ordered is the Froggy Kickball. My husband was the most excited about this toy lol. He said it is hard to find a good kickball. The kids have been playing outside with the ball for over a week now and it is still going strong. They did kick it over the fence a few time too. 🙂 The frog face really makes it cute and special.
The day I gave the toys to the kids if was very cold so not exactly a good day to play outside so you see the ball quickly became an inside basketball toy lol.
