I mean it.

Totally looking forward to sharing what I learned, what I saw, and some common themes through the event, but today? I’m sharing my Toy Fair Recap from the Melissa & Doug Booth, 2014.

My top five favorites for kids and families from Melissa & Doug.

I’ve worked with Melissa & Doug for years and years now, so I’m always pumped to see what new products they create and how they’re growing as a company.

It’s been a blast to connect with all of the great people behind the company–the folks in customer service, sales, personalization, and social media.

It’s cool to chat with the real Melissa and Doug.   They all work so hard.  And they stand so firmly behind their products. It’s awesome.

So for the third year in a row, the creative and crafty Valerie of Inner Child Fun and I were able to spend time together, explore the booth, explore the fair, and meet tons of fabulous people at the Melissa & Doug Media Breakfast that we hosted one morning.

Though there are tons of new products from Melissa & Doug this year, I’ve whittled it down to my top five faves.

Here’s the skinny. . .
