Melissa & Doug Kids' Art Supplies
The history of the Melissa & Doug company—as you can guess— is the history of two real people, Melissa and Doug. In August 1988, Doug was too nervous to ask Melissa for her hand in marriage, so he asked her to become his business partner instead. Only 2 months later in October, Melissa and Doug officially started their business in Doug’s parents’ home. Their first toy was introduced in 1991, a Fuzzy Farm wooden puzzle, and now the company offers over 2,000 toys and educational games for kids of all ages!
