The Classics by Melissa & Doug

In every generation, there’s a toy trend that excites everyone to play and have fun: marbles, pogs, sticker trading, Crazy Bones, jump ropes, Silly Bandz, Barbie, etc.  When I was young, pogs were the rage. Everyone had them, and used them at recess to battle their peers in an effort to increase their collections. As fun as those toys are, I’ve always been a huge supporter of classic toys. Everything from puzzles to wooden drums are easily found, but have the potential to capture the imagination of your child even though it isn’t electronic or newly created in the 21st Century. One company, Melissa & Doug, makes a fantastic selection of classically inspired toys, usually made with wood, to foster creative and educational play.

What better way to learn the alphabet than with giant, colourful puzzle pieces? This puzzle by Melissa & Doug is wonderfully constructed and perfect for small hands, just learning to grip.

Simple but adorable drawings help children identify animals and match shapes!

Tambourines, wooden shakers, a triangle, and more, outfit this cool and classic music set for budding musicians. Help your child learn about rhythm and melody!
