  1. Life With a Baby
    DS doesn't have too many toys and I think he may be getting bored with what he does have. Actually I'M getting kind of bored with his toys too. We need something new. I think part of the problem is he's got toys that he can't quite use yet (shape sorter, big wooden trucks, etc.)- he likes to...
  2. Life with a Toddler
    My DS (2) loves playing with all sorts of buckles, straps, etc....and I recently remembered seeing this board at the toy store. I am wondering if it is worth the $, or do the kids get bored with it very quickly? How is the quality? I'm not a huge M&D fan really, but I don't think I've seen...
  3. Family Safety This looks like it is just Canada, why isn't the US included? Aren't the products made in the same factory?
  4. Family Safety
    I thought I'd post this as an FYI. From the link: "Testing by Health Canada has revealed that the surface paint on the toys contains barium in excess of the allowable limit." The recall includes the Slice and Bake Cookie Set, Pound-a-Peg...
  5. Life with a Toddler
    Am I crazy for wanting to get an art easel as a Christmas present for my DD that will just be turning 1 in December? I want to start doing some painting and thought an easel would be a good idea. I was looking online at the one by Melissa and Doug, but will it be too tall for my little one? At...
  6. Family Safety
    I don't mean to rehash this issue about whether or not Melissa and Doug has lead in their toys, but I just want to know if anyone has any updated information on the issue? All the past posts seem to be over a year old. My daughter just received a ton of Melissa and Doug kitchen toys and I am so...
  7. Life with a Toddler
    I want to get one for my 3 yo DD...and once again, I have no friends IRL with kids my age - so here I am asking for HELP from experienced moms!! I have seen a few posts on here somewhere about the Ikea EAsel so I went on the website and was THRILLED it was only $15 !!! How is the quality on it...

  10. Montessori
    I was at AC Moore yesterday, and saw that all Melissa & Doug activities are 30% off, until June 13. I'll be getting DS some b-day presents. I checked their website, and you can also print out a coupon for 50% off one regularly priced item.
  11. Arts & Crafts
    Does anyone know what country these are made in? A couple sites I've been on say USA, but then their own site doesn't say. I'm leery because I know some of their stuff (wooden toys) are made in China.
  12. Family Safety
    My friend and I are trying to get an answer on this question that arose after reading the toy articles in the latest Mothering: Why were none of the toys shown by the company Melissa & Doug? We are wondering this mainly because every other toy pictured needs to be ordered online while we can go...
  13. Canada
    There is a recall for the "Geometric Stacker" for toddlers, more info on THIS LINK
  14. Life with a Toddler
    Seriously? A square, a rectangle, a parallelogram, a diamond, and a trapezoid that are almost identical in size? A pentagon, a hexagon, and an octagon? This thing confuses and frustrates me! How is dd supposed to enjoy this? (I've just been letting her thrown the pieces around the living room...
  15. The Childhood Years
    Are they conscientious about lead paint, etc? Recalls? We have a drug store in town here that carries a ton of really neat M&D toys and I'll definitely invest in them if they are worthy. Most are wood, not plastic and I love that!
  16. The Childhood Years
    I've heard that some melissa and doug toys aren't safe afterall. Dd recieved this doll house, which we love. The furniture is painted bright red. Has anyone heard anything about this toy? Can I paint over the red? Which paint do I use...
  17. Life with a Toddler
    Hey Mamas!! Does anyone have the Melissa and Doug barn? I was really trying to stay away from M&D, but Liam LOVES this barn. We go to the library and thats all he wants to with their barn! I had one gift fall through (dont order from Lillian Vernon, they stink!!!) and so I thought...
