Summertime means several things in my neck of the woods – camp, bugs, pools, heat, sprinklers, parks and sandboxes. And whether you like it or not, you need props for each one! Summer is the time where you have to occupy the kids in ways that you didn’t expect because you never know if you’re going to have rain or shine or hot or cold – at least in Chicago!
We start each summer with a trip to the store for some shopping. We have to buy new swim suits, pick up the sun screen, grab some sun hats and replace lost sand toys. This year, Melissa & Doug has released a fantastic line of sand toys!
My kids were crazy for these! They were different from the usual toys we’d purchased and they had a blast with them. My daughter baked me sand cupcakes with the Seaside Sidekicks Sand Cupcake Set and they both spent time cooking in their sand kitchen with the Seaside Sidekicks Baking Set. New friends that we made at the park enjoyed cleaning the sandbox with the Clicker Crab Pail and Scoop (you know, the friends you make for the one day?) and the Molding Set provided for lovely decoration in the sand kitchen. Truly, they were thrilled.
I’ve expressed my love of Melissa & Doug products before and these were no different. These toys are sturdy, allow for creativity and will last you several summers (assuming they don’t get lost!).
Make sure to check Melissa & Doug out on Facebook to keep up with all of their great promotions! Plus, if you join their Toy and Birthday club you’ll receive information right to your inbox!
