Melissa and Doug Gifts for Tween Boys
Do you remember the Melissa and Doug toys that your kids loved when they were younger? Maybe you already know but there are so many options for kids as they get older too. I have two boys that are 11 and 8, we are pushing into the tween years with them and I often struggle with the right types of gifts to get them at Christmas.
I decided to start looking in a direction other than video games and electronics to find toys that they could use their imagination more and be creative. I found several fun options on the Melissa and Doug website and wanted to share them with you!
