Like most of you, we enjoy the challenge of solving a clever puzzle. We want to surround ourselves with artifacts that inspire our senses and stimulate our curiosity.  By designing puzzles with the utmost attention to every detail in mind, Project Genius has curated a line of timeless brainteasers that you would be just as happy to display as you would be to play.

Melissa & Doug

There was a time not so long ago when childhood offered space and freedom for children to explore their world. Today, our overstimulated and over-scheduled children are using their imaginations less than ever. That’s why Melissa & Doug has committed to making products that inspire creative thinking and encourage kids to see new possibilities. It’s also why the American Academy of Pediatrics chose to join forces with them to champion the health benefits of open-ended play.

Melissa & Doug makes toys and other products that offer countless ways to play. We believe the best playthings are often simple concepts that inspire children to come up with their own twists.
