My Top 5 Favorite Toys
I have 3 kids, ages 9, 6 and 9 months. These are toys they have all had at some point. These are personal opinions on why I love these toys for my kids. I hope you can find some great deals for Amazon Prime Day 2021!
5. Melissa & Doug Puzzle Storage Rack: $16.99, marked down to $9.99
This is one of my favorites for several reasons. It holds up to 11 Melissa & Doug puzzles. If you're anything like me, those puzzles drive me crazy because I can never find a good way to organize them. They end up stuck on the book shelf or in the bottom of the toy box and soon, all of the pieces are scattered and missing. This is a great way to organize them.
The rack itself is metal, so that means it will last a long time. My kids are so rough when it comes to toys, or well, basically anything. They'll have a harder time destroying something that isn't made of wood or plastic.
The price. You can't beat that price!

4. Wooden Pound and Tap Bench with Slide-out Xylophone: $29.99, marked down to $13.49
Here's why I love it!
Like all of Melissa & Doug's toys, it's educational of course! This one helps stimulate their music learning. Banging around on things and hearing different noises at different tones and pitches, helps little ones learn how different sounds work. It's also the winner of the 2018 Cribsie Award of favorite first musical toy suitable for ages 12 months to 3 years.
It's durable and child safe! It has non-toxic finishes and water-based paints. So if your little one likes to chew on everything like mine does, you can rest easy because this won't hurt them.
The price point! It's already a great price, but for amazon prime day, this price is even better.

3. Melissa & Doug Stainless Steel Pots and Pans Pretend Play Kitchen Set for Kids (8 pieces), $29.99, marked down to $16.99
Here's why I love it and why you need it:
My kids were always drawn to my pots and pans in the kitchen. They could sit and play for hours banging away on these. I would try to give them the plastic ones, but they always knew they weren't the real deal, and kept going back to the kitchen cabinets. When I discovered these, I knew my kids would love them and I was right! They feel like they are getting to play with my pots and pans, and I don't have to worry about them getting into my cabinets anymore!
They're hand polished stainless steel, meaning they will last forever and continue to "grow" with your kids! They are recommended for ages 3-8. So you will absolutely get your money's worth out of these pots and pans.
