Making the World Cuter: Melissa & Doug Review & GIVEAWAY!!!

A blog where one woman is on a mission to make the world cuter, one kid, cupcake or crafty thing at a time.


Melissa & Doug Review & GIVEAWAY!!!

edit: Giveaway Closed: Winner announced

I may have squealed a little when I got an email from the people at Melissa & Doug asking if I would like to do a review and giveaway for them. As any of my regular readers know, I LOVE Melissa & Doug products!

Read on, and then be sure to enter the giveaway!!!

I am slowly thinning out my kids toys that drive me crazy-you know the plastic ones that don't have a place, and all the electronic stuffed animals and pretty much anything that isn't great quality. If I don't think it's nice enough to keep for my future grandkids, I really don't want it in my house. I am just tired of the clutter, ya know?

I have been building a little collection of Melissa & Doug toys for awhile now, and was super excited to add to the fun.

We decided on some play food and a Green Trunki

What's a Trunki you ask?

I actually hadn't heard of them either until I visited the official Melissa & Doug website. Then I couldn't live another minute without having one! This has got to be one of the smartest, coolest, cutest most fun inventions in a long time!
Well it's a hard suitcase...
It has wheels, easy carry handles, and a strap with an ID tag.
It is super well made-of course-it's Melissa & Doug after all!
It is also regulation carry on size-super handy for a kids suitcase right?
Well that's all good and great-but you just wait, it gets better!It's also a ride on toy!
That is ingenious my friends-INGENIOUS!
It holds up to 100 pounds-so while you're waiting for your flight at the airport, your kids can be riding their toys and not whining about being bored.
But wait it gets better!
The carry strap is super sturdy and can be used as a tow strap, turning your Trunki into a pulling toy.
I can see this being handy for my 4 year old when he starts whining that his feet hurt while making our way to the very last terminal that seems about 100 miles away when you're travelling with kids!
Plus my kids are having an absolute ball pulling each other around the house on it.
There is also plenty of room inside for necessities with security straps to hold things in place.
While not travelling it can be used as toy storage.
So practical-it's killing me!
I am so excited about this product-that I am buying the tiger striped one for Porter and the ladybug one for Bekah. While I'm at it I will probably buy the blue one for Oliver to use when he is older.
They all have fun names, and even accessories you can buy. Like saddlebags, (a messenger type bag that attaches like a saddle to the Trunki) and stickers to either make a face on their Trunki or their name or places they've traveled!
So cool, am I right?
I am, trust me! :)

The next thing we got is the food groups wood toys in the food play section.
I am a HUGE fan of the play food from this company.
It is the BEST quality and it's cute and imaginative.
The plastic food at my house is the first thing that gets thrown out.

My kids love playing kitchen, store, restaurant...pretty much anything with play food. The home school mom in me is really loving this set because it teaches the kids a lesson at the same time they are playing!
They are learning the food groups, and it easy to show the kids that they need to eat enough of each of the food groups each day. Dinner has even been a little easier since they can now realize they haven't had enough veggies yet for the day and have to eat more broccoli or salad. :)
Another perk to this set, is that they all come in their own little crates, which fit perfectly into their play fridge and adds organization which to me is a little bit of heaven!
Nothing makes me happier about toys than organization!

Except for maybe when you can cut them with a play knife and cutting board with cute little chubby baby hands! Melissa & Doug Cutting Food is perhaps one of my very favorite sets of toys my kids have, and it is definitely one of theirs as well. My 2 year old plays with this set for hours, putting it together and then cutting them apart again. These are life size foods which in my opinion makes them even that much more fun! :)
Once again the wood crate to keep it all organized is a major bonus for me! :)

Don't you just LOVE Melissa & Doug?
Yeah me too, I have a major crush on this company!

You want to win these awesome toys for your kids?
One lucky reader will get everything I've talked about today;

& The Trunki

Can you say YIPPEE! :)
Your kids will...or at least something similar...

All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me which Melissa & Doug toys you love!

Bonus entries if you tweet, facebook and/or blog about this giveaway-just leave me extra comments for all the things you do!

Easy right?
I hope you win, I really do! :)

I will pick a random winner next Wednesday, February 2nd.

Wow, I can't honestly think which is our favorite one of their toys. I think it really depends on which kid we're talking about, since M&D's has such an amazing age range of toys.

My personal favourite is my son's 'my first Dino' or whatever it's called. It's purple and wooden (of course) and you can bend it into all different shapes. I liked it so much I bought a bunch to give away at baby showers.

I'm a grandma of five and until now was not familiar with Melissa and Doug toys. But, I love the wooden food! Thanks for the link! My daughter is making a cute retro kitchen for her kids from a recycled entertainment center. She was wanting to make the refrigerator magnetic also. I wish she were done with it so I could send you a picture. I did make my granddaughter a cute apron using a repurposed maternity top of all things. You can check it out on my new blog at Thanks for all your cute ideas!

I have a Bachelor's in Education, concentrating in Early Childhood, so "good quality" toys is something I know a bit about. I LOVE the Melissa and Doug products. I mostly know their puzzles and food products. I would LOVE the stacking blocks for my baby (now 2). Her older siblings had ones that they used so much, they are still usable, but pretty worn. I also love this new concept and looks like fun.

I love all things Melissa and Doug! My oldest daughter (now 7) got the fruit cutting set for her first birthday, and it's been a family favorite ever since. My one year old just got the M&D piano - and even though she plays it with her tush instead of her fingers - it's a hit!
