The Best Melissa and Doug Toys for Two-Year-Olds

Today I’m rounding up a list of the best Melissa and Doug toys for two-year-olds. Our family loves Melissa and Doug toys. They are known for some of the best wooden toys on the market. I’m convinced they make some of the best toys for little hands! They are well-made and great for imaginative and educational play.

As a mom of six (and soon to be seven) I have a lot of experience with toys and two-year-olds. Not only that, but I’ve spent a lot of years in daycare and babysitting settings before having children of my own. The two-year-old classroom at the daycare is where I spent a lot of time during my daycare days actually, and I really enjoyed it.

Two years old is a fun age where children learn how to communicate, explore the world around them, and try to emulate what they see you doing. My youngest child, Killian, just turned 2 in April. Lately, he has been working hard on identifying body parts, making sounds for animals and objects (like car noises when he plays cars), and learning how to navigate trickier terrain, like walking up and down stairs.

As a frequent Melissa and Doug shopper, here are my top Melissa and Doug toys for two-year-olds. They would make great gifts for Christmas, a birthday, Easter, or just because.

The Best Place to Purchase Melissa and Doug Toys

My go-to place for purchasing Melissa and Doug products is directly from their website. They frequently have great sales and promotions and it’s better to support the brand directly by cutting out the middle man. Plus, you don’t have to worry about getting knock-off products when you shop through them.

Any of these toys would make a 2 year old happy. The Lets Play House Toy was a favorite of my granddaughters.
