{Melissa & Doug Monster Bowling}

My kids are so hard on toys and always have been. So for me to find toys that can withstand them and still be functional enough to pass down is sometimes challenging! Some of the best toys my kids have are from Melissa & Doug. My kids love their play food sets and will play for hours with them. They are durable, functional and really fun. I love the wonderful selection of Games and Pretend Play and many of their toys have won awards. Their website is shopper and parent friendly. Sign up for their Treasured Toy Club and receive Special Offers, Exclusive Coupons & Promotions, The Opportunity to Enter Giveaways, New Toy Previews.


We had the opportunity to review the Melissa & Doug Monster Bowling. I am not sure who loves this more, mom or the kids? These bright colored fuzzy monsters have been such a hit in my house. The kids love knocking these little guys down and doing it all over again. They are especially fun for my 2 1/2 year old son who cracks up laughing every time he is able to take one out with the ball. He has fun saying the colors of the monsters and even carries these guys around while taking a break from bowling. Their fun colored and fuzzy textures make these great for the younger ones. They clean up easy and go in their own zippered bag. They are available for only 24.99 from Melissa & Doug, you can find more kids games on their site as well.
From puzzles to puppets, plush to play food, magnetic activities, music and more, Melissa & Doug® is one of the leading designers and manufacturers of educational toys and children's products. Started in 1988 in their garage, Melissa & Doug® has something for everyone, with nearly 1000 unique and exciting products for children of all ages!
