Art Toys for Kids


I’m always drawn to toys that are tastefully and artistically designed when shopping for my daughter.  Art is everywhere if you really look for it.  An artist designed that toy you’re looking at, a designer created that package, someone at the store creatively displayed the toys for you to shop, the list goes on.

I would rather go out of my way to find an art inspired gift that sparks interest and imagination than something shiny and plastic that soon will lose it’s luster.

Melissa & Doug toys have become a favorite of ours.  My daughter loves her Melissa & Doug sushi set,  princess puzzle, and birthday cake set (just to name a few of her favorites).  These are toys you keep and pass down to younger generations to enjoy when it’s their turn.


Melissa & Doug have a fantastic selection of art related toys and supplies.  From paint sets, to easels and drawing paper, you can find what you need and know that it’s made with love.

Here’s a little excerpt of their story… Over 25 years ago we started our company in the garage of the home where Doug grew up — we had to be careful not to disturb Doug’s parents who were still living there!  Our philosophy has remained the same over the years–to make each and every customer a happy and permanent member of the Melissa & Doug family, while offering products with tremendous value, quality and design.

This is the first place I shop when I need a gift for one of my daughter’s friends. My daughter loves their wooden play sets, puzzles, and especially their art related toys!
