Major Restock: Kid-Friendly and M:TG Edition

Melissa & Doug

Following close on the heels of our puzzle restock, we have some exciting changes coming to our Kids & Family section! We’ve carried Melissa & Doug puzzles for years, and now we’re expanding that line with their selection of activity and coloring books.

Our selection of Melissa & Doug is excellent for our youngest customers. By stocking their expanded Decorate-Your-Own and Activity Pad lines, we’ve added tons of new products for ages 1 to 5 and strengthened our line for the full range of elementary school ages.

We have deeply restocked activity and sticker books including Water Wow (the markers only work on special paper, not walls!), Puffy Stickers, and reusable sticker books. These items are fantastic for holiday travel. Our more advanced activity books, geared towards older elementary school ages, include Secret Decoder mystery books: a type of choose-your-own-adventure with special secret ink that provides clues so the reader can solve each case!

To flesh out our Craft & Activity sections, we have a number of M&D Decorate-Your-Own products. These include DIY headbands, clay figurines, and wooden models. We even have paintable coin banks!

Additionally, we’ve restocked some of our old classics. Chunky wooden puzzles are perfect for young children and often have skill-building themes including shapes, numbers, and colors.  We also have fully restocked Smarty Pants flash cards, from pre-K to 5th grade!

Coloring Books

In addition to new coloring and activity books for kids, we’ve also brought in coloring books for adults! Our selection now includes regular Melissa & Doug coloring pads, Springbok Pattern coloring books, and soon a selection of other coloring books for children and adults. To make sure you have the full experience available at our store, we have a great selection of markers on sale!

For our younger customers we have some especially nifty products from Melissa & Doug. Beyond just plain sheets of paper, many of their coloring pads can change colors, reveal patterns, or form 3D shapes!

We will be expanding this line into the Holiday Season and 2017 with new coloring book selections (including some high fantasy and science fiction themes) and accessories. Keep an eye on our website and e-mail list for more updates on our Craft & Activity section!

Planechase Anthology

Last but not least, we've officially stocked up on boxed sets of Planechase! Also known as Planar Magic, this is an official game variant of Magic: The Gathering first popularized by Planechase 2009.
