If you're a parent, you already know the chokehold the popular kids' brand Melissa & Doug has on you and your child. Their iconic wooden toys are fun and durable. They're so tough, in fact, that you probably have a fair share you bought second-hand or that family and friends passed along to you when their kids outgrew them. They stand the test of time (and toddlerhood). Bonus: They do it all with the purpose of being both entertaining and educational — every box or crate comes with ideas on how to use them to teach multiple real-life skills. The only "problem" with Melissa & Doug toys is that paying full price for them can do a number on your budget. Luckily, they're on mega sale right now, thanks to Prime Day.
Anyone else consider this time of year the kick-off point for holiday shopping? Well, get ready, because Amazon's Prime Day has come locked and loaded with deals so good you can grab everything you need for under the tree in one fell swoop. There are the best Melissa & Doug deals during Prime Day.
