I've recently discovered the Melissa and Doug toy line for my three year old nieces and have been very happy with this particular brand. Wish it had been around for my children's childhood. So far, all the products I have purchased have been well above the industry standard of today, even though they are made in China. That would be my only negative aspect, since it's impossible to know what glues and paints have been used in manufacturing them.
I ordered two sets of the wooden magnetic dolls. They are made of pressed particle board, with thinner particle board "clothes" that are nicely stenciled with colorful outfits. There are a dozen or so large outfits, dresses, pants, shirts, etc. plus numerous accessories, like hats, shoes, purses. Plenty to keep two little girls happily amused. I also ordered the ballerina, which is larger in size than the two dolls that came with the "emma" play set. It, too, has plenty of colorful tu-tu to play with. I anticipate these to last for quite some time, even with twin girls fighting over which ones they want. Plus there's one left for auntie.
