We just got a TJ Maxx in my town a few weeks ago. They have so many great toys. Lots of Melissa and Doug. I'll definitely be doing some Christmas shopping there.

For DD's little friends birthday gifts, I hit the Melissa and Doug section at TJ Maxx.... Mommas think I buy the toys from the expensive toy store...

TJ Maxx is where I buy most of my M& D stuff. I also buy tons of board books there. The prices on both are FANTASTIC! Marshall's is a good place too!!

Hmmm. I'm glad you posted this. I've been scouring the internet looking for some M&D puzzles for cheap, I should head over and see what our TJ's and Marshalls has. It didn't even occur to me to check there.

Thanks for the tip!

Our nearest TJ Maxx goes through cycles of being jammed with Melissa&Doug, then none at all for a few months. I don't make it there often, so I don't know the big picture, but it seems to be all-or-nothin around here.

It IS fun giving them as gifts-
they make ya look so worldly, wholesome, -and spendy. :LOL

We don't have a TJ but we do have Marshall and they always have the M&D toys for about 1/3 of the price that they cost at the toy store right across the way in the mall!

I've found that most of the stores like Tj Maxx and Marshalls-type stores now have Melissa and Doug toys. I am guessing that they all have the same supplier or something.

Filenes carries M&D also.
