Melissa & Doug Christmas Giveaway

by Erica


My children love to play store and seem to set up a new shop in our living room each day. It can get a bit messy, especially when they use all of my books to create a book store. And don’t get me started on the toy store that includes most of the toys and stuffed animals from their bedrooms.

When I was asked to review the Melissa & Doug Grocery Store/Lemonade stand, I was thrilled. It is absolutely perfect for my children.


The plastic bins not only help to keep everything neat and tidy, but they also make clean up a breeze. The removable chalkboard signs are perfect for handwriting practice and also provide a fun way to teach money values to my older two.

It is very sturdy, holding up well to all three of my kiddos who can sometimes be more like bulls in a China shop.

High-quality, educational and fun, what else would you expect from Melissa & Doug?

The Grocery Store/Lemonade Stand has already received hours of play. We can’t wait for springtime to take the stand outside and sell lemonade to the neighbors.

This would make a perfect Christmas gift. In fact, we have one Melissa & Doug Grocery Store/Lemonade Stand, retail value $129.99, to give away to one lucky reader.
