The most frustrating two words any mom, dad, grammie or poppy can hear during a summer vacation is this one — I’m bored. And the question parents dread — are we there yet? Avoid boredom with great toys, games, puzzles and supplies for the budding young artist, with more than 800 selections from Melissa and Doug. Shop online and save money. My kids loved the classic wooden puzzles when they were younger, and the wooden artist easel when they were a bit older. Shop by age or category, including classic toys and playthings for the beach or pool.
