Melissa Doug Toys - Buying Melissa & Doug Toys

include wooden fun puzzles

When it comes to children’s toys, parents are more discriminating now than they have ever been. For forty years toys have been going through a systematical change to be better, smarter, and safer than the toys of yesterday. One company that understands what parents want and what children like is Melissa & Doug Toys. Melissa & Doug toys are known for being educational, unique, and fun. Some of them are unlike anything you may have had yourself growing up.

Melissa & Doug was founded by boyfriend/girlfriend business partners (now husband and wife) Melissa and Doug Bernstein. They founded the company together in Doug’s parent’s garage with nothing but their unique vision. Their first wooden toy, a Fuzzy Farm pink, fuzzy pig puzzle, was not introduced until three years after their founding. 11 years later they sales staff expanded to nineteen employees to meet the demand of consumers, and they were forced out of the garage. Today, the U.S. sales and distribution team is over 200 strong and operates out of a proper company headquarters in Wilton, Connecticut. The manufacturing end of the business has been outsourced to China, but that hasn’t diminished the emphasis on quality that buyer’s of Melissa & Doug toys have come to expect.
