For over twenty years, Melissa & Doug has been one of the top manufacturers of children's products across the nation. With over 800 fun-filled products, the company ensures that children all over the world enjoy stepping into a magical world of learning and pretend play. Puzzles, magnetic activities, musical toys, puppets and play food are just a few of the many cool items offered by this brand. In the interest of keeping children safe, products are carefully tested to ensure they meet the company's safety standards. What started as a small company in 1988 has turned into one of the most well-respected manufacturers today.
They started their company in the garage of the home where Doug grew up - they had to be careful not to disturb Doug's parents who were still living there! Thanks to your support, they've been able to move into a real office down the road, a building that actually has separate ladies and men's bathrooms! Their 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. They've always welcomed customer suggestions, and they continually strive to make improvements to their products. They're honored by the faith you place in them and view it as their responsibility to continue to earn your trust in the years to come!
From day one, they've signed their names, Melissa & Doug, to every product they make. They take that signature seriously --- it’s their commitment to you that you can trust the products you bring into your home. As parents, every time they make a product for you, it also has to pass the test of coming home with them, where they enjoy playing with these same toys with all six of their children.
No matter how carefully they design their products, they believe there’s no substitute for TESTING, TESTING, and MORE TESTING. The key to assuring the safety of their products is not simply insisting their factories follow instructions, but to go one step further and AUDIT, INSPECT, AND TEST, not only once, but at various phases of the production process. This is something they've always done.
Additionally, they specifically test their paints and coatings very frequently, to be sure their toys meet or exceed government recommendations limiting heavy metals and lead in children’s items. They have cabinets full of thousands of passing test reports, and these passing results have been verified by 3rd party independently accredited testing laboratories, considered by many to be the best scientific laboratories in the world.
Please continue to enjoy their toys with confidence, knowing that each and every time they design and craft a toy, they're not only making them for you, but for their own kids too.
