Melissa & Doug Share Holiday Gift List Ideas
Melissa & Doug are preparing for their upcoming holiday season, which includes naming their top picks of creative toys that they sell. The brand is known for their toys that support creativity. The company has high hopes for this year’s sales during the holiday season. One of the owners, Melissa Bernstein had this to say.
Here is the official list of the toys that they have listed in their list. They start with baby toys and slowly work their way up the list.
Caterpillar Gear Toy ($9.99)
Turn the gears slowly and watch each interlocking segment move the next, or see how fast your child can make the caterpillar “crawl” on the wooden base. This rainbow-colored gear toy is hands-on fun at any speed. With their bulky, notched shape, the colorful gears are easy for children to fit onto the color-coordinated pegs . . . then rotate, remove, and rearrange!

I am happy to see some unique toys are out there. I feel like they do not have enough of these kind of toys and we need more companies to design toys like these. I have a feeling that they might just start becoming the next big thing again since everybody wants to go back to basics.
Are you fan of the brand? I love their concept, so I guess that I am a fan of them. I am hoping that they will be successful this season and help their brand to grow. That is something that they should be able to do, thanks to the amazing products that they do make.
