Discover Countless Ways To Play
SORT & MATCH: Have the kids sort the pieces into groups: tops, pants, skirts, pet sweaters, etc. Ask them to find matching patterns on different pieces, then use those pieces to dress the dolls and pets in coordinating outfits!
MIXED UP OUTFITS: Set a time for 30 seconds and challenge kids to come up with a silly outfit for one of the figures before time runs out. Maybe the cat is wearing sunglasses and a skirt, or a doll dresses in just one shoe and a winter hat. Have kids tell you what makes the outfits silly.
FETCH: The puppy dog loves to play fetch! Place all the pieces in the storage tray and ask the kids to use the dog on a stand to "retrieve" a specific piece, such as the hat with the peace sign or a pink shoe. When they find the piece, have them place it on the dog. How many different pieces can they fetch and stick to the dog without any falling off?
STORY TIME: Have kids give each doll and pet a name. Have them dress all four of the figures and then tell a story about where they are going and what adventures they have along the way.
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:
