    Love all the melissa and doug toys. but i’m always on the look out for fun/captivating chore charts…and my girls thrive from chore charts! so the melissa & doug chore chart would be on my list as well as the noah’s arc set. but way too many things to look through!

  59. Crissie

I will be getting him a set of these.

  70. Jessica

    We are big fans of ALL of the Meliss and Doug wooden food sets. Although I think the kiddos may need to get the kabob set and stir-fry slicing kit to round out their play kitchen!

  71. I had my kids help me a little with the wish list… considering they are the ones wishing for everything lately (hope Santa got there emails… anyhoo) the wish list: My son, Riley who is 3 loved the tree house, he especially wants the little boy to come with it. He said, “mom, can I play with him” sure son. Maybe he doesn’t get out enough… yikes! Then my 11 month old little girl pretty much helped my typing skills, slobberine on everything and squeeling with delight when the other kids got so excited about the toys. I pick for her the soft plush stacking rings. Then there is the 7 year old girl… Keagan, he wants the painting easel, the make your own princess puppets, and the swirl and spin art fun (I talked her into that one.. I remember loving mine as a kid) So there is the wish list. I could go on, but I am not sure how many characters I am allowed. Thanks, as always for the giveaway, and for the website. Looks like Christmas shopping just got a little easier!

  72. Tiffany

    My son would love their giant plush elephant. My daughter would love the Princess Elise magnetic doll set. Cute site! I am a follower of your site, too. It was private, but I switched it to public now. :o)

I loved the wooden food sets and the grocery store/lemonade stand. And I really like the wooden nesting blocks with animals. Wooden toys are so great!

    Your site Jenny and the ‘slice and bake cookies’ are adorable. Inventive & fresh. I know my daughter would be beyond pleased to own any of the cooking/baking ware.

  121. Wow, cool site. Here is my list:

    Build Your Own Birdhouse
    Wooden Craft Kit – Car
    Make Your Own Monster
    Litter of Lizards
    Skipping Rope – Tiger
    Yackle Ball – Glow in the Dark
    Wooden Pirate Chest

    Thanks for the chance and again, thanks for your site!! Love it.

  122. My 2 year old son loves cars, he would love to have the EverEarth Junior Ramp Racer by Maxim Toys and my daughter would love the Elise Princess Dress-Up Dolls by Melissa & Doug. There are so many cute things on this website Thanks! I will link it on my blog thanks!

    Wow…so many options for my nephews! I like the Junior Ramp Racer and Activity Walker and Push toy. The Pirate Chest would be great for stimulating imaginations, and the Band in a Box could be quite entertaining.

    I would love to get my son the Swirl ‘n Spin Art Fun by Melissa & Doug. I know it would be messy, but oh so much fun!

  125. Oh my. This would be a great Christmas gift for my nephew. Or I might just have to get the pretend play food for myself ๐Ÿ˜‰ Much cheaper than real cooking. Some of my favs:

    Kitchen playset
    slice and bake cookies
    crate of food

    Really all the pretend play food. I have the sudden urge to be a child again ๐Ÿ™‚

  126. Louanne

    My 5-year old son loves puzzles and anything to do with outerspace, so I know he would love the Melissa & Doug Astronomy Floor Puzzle.

  127. mary allison cates

    i love all of the magnetic toys. my little boy is getting a giant magnetic board for christmas, and those magnetic letters, paperdolls, and puzzles would be perfect!

  128. My wish list would be the pirate chest, lots of the stocking stuffers for my 5 yr old son, my nephew & niece. And can’t forget the art supplies and pretend play items.
