Melissa & Doug Toys - Restocked!

We don't order from Melissa & Doug often, so it's always exciting when those crates start to roll in - and even more exciting once the shelves are refilled!

We carry tons of their products... way more than we can show in a single picture! In case you're curious what else we have from one of our favorite toy companies, take a search through our current M&D inventory.

Still can't find that perfect gift?
Don't fret!

We're getting another restock from Melissa & Doug in December, so if you know what you want, we can be sure to grab it for you.

Call, email, or stop in to place a special order, and we'll make sure you have the perfect gift in time for the holidays!
