Melissa & Doug continues to provide award-winning, high quality children’s toys, large stuffed animals, colorful puzzles and games geared toward enhancing learning and creativity.  Be sure to stop in and check out the giant floor puzzles, wooden toys and, of course, our favorite, Gerry – the “baby giraffe.”  Your child will love the fun and you will love the quality!

In 1977, three college friends in Palo Alto, CA, combined their talents to sell juggling lessons with bean bag sets.  After one week and a $35 profit, the trio decided to create a book on juggling titled “Juggling for the Complete Klutz.”  They strapped on backpacks and distributed them by bicycle.  Since then,  the Klutz Company has grown to manufacture not only instructional books, but also Klutz Toys and Klutz Activity Kits.
