Who Are Melissa & Doug?

The Melissa & Doug Mission

To ignite imagination and a sense of wonder in all children so they can discover themselves, their passions, and their purpose

There was a time when childhood offered the space and freedom for children to explore their world.

To be curious. To be creative. To be bold. To be bored. To just... be.

Today, our children use their imaginations less than ever. That's why Melissa & Doug are committed to making products that inspire open-ended thinking.

It’s part of their bigger vision to Take Back Childhood. Because by giving children a true childhood, we give them a path to realizing their full potential!

Yes, Melissa and Doug Are Real People!

It's usually the first question people ask, "Are Melissa and Doug REAL PEOPLE?" And when they meet them, the reaction is almost always the same--- sheer excitement to meet Melissa, and, ummmm, when they meet Doug, people usually wonder, does this guy EVER stop talking?!

After pooling their life savings together, Melissa and Doug worked night and day out of Doug's parents' garage to develop their first product. To this day, they hand-make each prototype until they get it just right.

They've also raised a family of six kids! Or, as Melissa likes to say, she has a total of SEVEN kids, if you include Doug, the most mischievous child of all!

What Melissa & Doug Create

Toys, games and many other products that offer children Countless Ways To Play!

The best playthings are often simple concepts that inspire children to come up with their own ideas.

Melissa & Doug hope to encourage:

Free Play

Together we can Take Back Childhood!

Let's work together to let kids be kids.

Here are some ideas to get started:

Plan For Play
Put free time on your calendar just like you’d pencil in games or music practice.

Let Kids Lead
As parents, your role is to guide and facilitate, not direct or dictate.

Keep It Free!
The best play, discovery, and creation truly begins with nothing but imagination.
