In our last post, Melissa and Doug Costumes from Maziply, we decided to point out a few of our favorite Melissa and Doug dress-up outfits and costumes. Whether your little tike wants to be a police officer, a princess, or a magician, you are sure to find the pretend-costume you are looking for when shopping Melissa & Doug costumes from Maziply.
But, as many of our readers know, Melissa & Doug is a learning toy brand that carries much more than costumes and dress-up outfits. They produce a wide variety of preschool learning toys, puzzles, and interactive games kids love. Most every toy is so much fun, kiddos don’t even have time to realize they are learning about life while they enjoy themselves!
While you can check out our full selection of Melissa & Doug products, today’s post is going to be focused on highlighting Melissa And Doug puzzles we have in stock, in addition to a few other preschool learning toys we couldn’t help but tell our readers about. Among those “other” Melissa & Doug toys are magic sets, pull-back vehicles, and some take-along play mats that you can pack up in a hurry and use on the go!
So if you are interested in finding some fun and educational toys for the little one(s) in your life, make sure you keep reading, this post from Maziply Toys & Collectibles is for you!
If you are a fan of Melissa & Doug toys, as most children and adults who are familiar with the brand are, there’s a decent chance you are familiar with their collection of jumbo knob puzzles. These puzzles are unique in that they include pieces with...wait for it...jumbo wooden knobs that are very easily grasped by children. They serve as an excellent introduction to the wonderful world of puzzles.
This Melissa and Doug Safari puzzle comes with three jungle friends (pieces) for little ones to learn the basics of puzzle completion — a lion, an elephant, and a giraffe are ready to be played with! Each piece is extra thick, wooden, and vibrant with the matching picture appearing beneath each piece, to make it easy on the kiddos if indeed this is their first puzzle. Recommended for children one or older, get this Jungle Friends Safari Jumbo Knob Puzzle from Maziply for just $9.99!
While we are talking about Jumbo Knob Puzzles from Melissa and Doug, we’ve got a Barnyard Animals Jumbo Knob Puzzle that includes three extra-thick wooden pieces — a smiling sheep, horse, and cow. As is the case with pretty much all Melissa and Doug puzzles we have for sale here at Maziply, the colors are vibrant and the puzzle itself is well-made. Develop your kiddo’s coordination and visual perception skills while they learn about common farm animals! This puzzle is available for just $9.99 from Maziply Toys & Collectibles.
Certainly in the same vein as the Melissa & Doug puzzles above, this Large Farm Jumbo Knob Puzzle features eight extra-thick wooden puzzle pieces with wooden knobs attached for easy grasping. With a red barn background, vibrant colors and happy, smiling faces on the farm animals’ faces, this Melissa & Doug puzzle teaches toddlers hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, and visual perception skills. It’s colorful, easy for children to enjoy (while learning about matching and utilizing motor skills), and is ideal for kids ages one and up!

Zebras, rhinos, lions, hippos, crocodiles, elephants, ostriches — oh my! Your wee one will love these African animal favorites on this extra-thick wooden puzzle, featuring eight easily-grabbable (we think that’s a word) chunky wild-animal pieces. Just like with the puzzles above, this Melissa & Doug safari puzzle includes full-color matching pictures underneath. We wouldn’t expect anything less from a quality company like Melissa & Doug!
What’s more, the sunset-background is a nice feature. Perfect for toddlers ages two and up, get your safari puzzle for toddlers from Maziply for just $9.99! Plus, don’t forget about free shipping on all orders when you shop from Maziply!
The final puzzle we’d like to direct your attention toward is our Melissa & Doug Safari Peg Puzzle, just $7.99 from Maziply! Featuring stork, lion, giraffe, and zebra pieces, this safari peg puzzle is great for children around two or three years old. The pins are a bit more challenging to grasp than the jumbo knobs, naturally, but that is a good thing, as your kiddo can work on precision with regards to their fine motor skills!
This Melissa and Doug Take-Along Town Play Mat will set you back just $24.99, which is a pretty smoking deal when you realize how simple it is to pack up and bring along with you no matter where you and your little tike are headed. The play mat folds up into a tote-bag, includes several different kinds of play-vehicles, and features an exciting town square and traffic circle for your little boy and girl to play on.

The wonderful world of Melissa & Doug pull-back vehicles. Also $24.99, these soft pull-and-go cars are perfect for both babies and toddlers. Four vehicles are included in this set, featuring a school bus, family car, fire truck, and police car. They are so soft and lightweight that the cars are easy to play with, even if your child might be more of a baby than a toddler at this point! Like many of the other preschool learning toys (or younger than preschool, to be fair) that we’ve highlighted, these Melissa and Doug pull-back vehicles help develop skills that include gross motor, logical, linguistic, emotional, communication, fine motor, sensory, and others!
Perfect for kiddos four and older, the tricks in this Melissa & Doug Magic Set are easy to learn and perform, not to mention they are pretty darn impressive as well! It’s a 12-piece magic set that includes a coin which appears in a mesh bag, a ball and vase trick, disappearing scarf, and even a case which makes a $100 bill disappear and reappear! If your child has a penchant for performance-arts, here is a great way to develop that inkling! Get your Magic In A Snap! Magic Set for just $14.99 from Melissa and Doug!
