Brand: Melissa & Doug
When Melissa and Doug Bernstein began making wooden puzzles in their garage 20 years ago, little did they know that they’d become one of the country’s leading manufacturers of educational toys. With an age range from toddlers up to preteens, the Melissa & Doug toy catalog offers everything from plush animals and dollhouses to clay modeling kits and fashion stencils. Particular Melissa & Doug standouts are the Trunki, a colorful carry-on suitcase that doubles as a wheeled sit-and-scoot toy, and the Sunny Patch line, which is full of cheery and imaginative toys designed for the outdoors.
