Pretend Play Toys for 4 Year olds from Melissa and Doug

Melissa and Doug: We have been working with the fine folks at Melissa and Doug since we started ebeanstalk (and yes, Melissa and Doug are real people. They are actually husband and wife). Primarily because we are both dedicated to childhood development.

While we love their toys for the quality, play value and overall value, we also love them for their commitment to safety and course childhood development. After Melissa and Doug get the safety testing complete, then it is all about how to improve their toys, games and puzzles. They do this systematically - discontinuing the toys that do not sell, and always adding new exciting items to their line. Melissa and Doug design and create with learning and development in mind, and it shows. There is a reason they are the number one specialty toy company in the country. We love their products and are behind them 100%.

As far as we're concerned, there are 3 things we do to all Melissa and Doug toys:

First we age match them. Actually, our experts do this. Perfect for childhood development.

Second, we really put the toys through the ringer for durability. No one likes a broken toy, and least of all a kid. Again, to help childhood development.

Finally, we test and test for PLAY VALUE. Meaning, the child has to engage with the toy for a while and foster childhood development. And not find-the-end-of-the-toy within 5 minutes.

ENJOY!
