Discover Countless Ways To Play

  • Turn the boards upside-down for a new set of sequence challenges.

  • Ask the child to sort the pieces into groups by color or shape. Count each group and discuss which has the most pieces and which has the fewest pieces.

  • Create a color sequence on one of the dowels and ask the child to repeat the colors on the next dowel, using any of the shapes.

  • Create a shape sequence on one of the dowels and ask the child to repeat the shapes on the next dowel, using any of the colors.

  • Begin a simple pattern (such as red, blue, red, blue) with beads on a dowel. Ask the child to continue the pattern to fill the dowel.

  • Fill one of the dowels with a rainbow sequence: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple. Ask the child to replicate the color sequence on the other dowels to create entire rows of rainbow colors.

  • Create a number line: Place one bead on the first dowel, two beads on the second dowel, and so on. Then count along the number line.

  • Use the dowels and beads to express mathematical ideas. For instance: "This dowel has 3 beads. I'm holding 2 beads. When I add my beads, 3 put together with 2 makes 5 beads in all!"

  • Describe beads aloud and ask the child to follow your spoken instructions to fill a dowel. Extra challenge: Ask the child to remember and carry out a few instructions at a time.


About Melissa & Doug

Our mission is to provide a launch pad 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 not so long ago 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 overstimulated and overscheduled children are using their imaginations less than ever. It’s a crisis in the making. And it’s why we’re committed to making products that inspire creative thinking and encourage kids to see new possibilities. It’s also why the American Academy of Pediatrics chose to join forces with us to champion the health benefits of open-ended play.


We make toys and other products that offer Countless Ways To Play. We believe the best playthings are often simple concepts that inspire children to come up with their own twists. With everything we create, we hope to encourage:

  • Free Play
  • Creativity
  • Imagination
  • Learning
  • Discovery
