Melissa & Doug unveiled a ton of really awesome new products this year at Toy Fair.

Check out our behind-the scenes look at Toy Fair, 2014:

Like many of their classic toys, a number of their new products pack a powerful punch–they’re fun to play, kids will love them, and they yield big payoffs for skill-building.

Though it was very difficult to not choose 50 new toys as my favorites, my 5 favorite Melissa & Doug toys are:

  • Lock & Roll Rescue Truck Garage:   A take-along garage that helps develop fine motor skills and creative play? Love it.
  • Sticker Sets: Puffy Sticker Activity Books and Reusable Sticker Pads are both so fabulous for getting kids’ brains moving and creative juices flowing!
  • Puzzles: Lots of new puzzles over here, with Peek-Through Puzzles, Stacking Chunky Puzzles, and more choices for jigsaws!
  • Simply Crafty Kits: All-inclusive kits that include pre-cut masks, purses, tiaras, or frames let kids create beautiful, 3D art!
  • On the Go Activity Books: More all-inclusive kits that are small, compact, and perfect for bringing fun anywhere and everywhere!
