You can set the stage for real-life adventure!
These toys can inspire children to develop a lifelong love of nature and inspire families to explore our national parks. This collection gives young children an early start on appreciating the great outdoors through open-ended, child-led play that starts at home.
You can help kids learn all about the parks and their animals and plants!
Taking cues from the vast natural wonders within the national parks, Melissa & Doug designed these puzzles, pretend play sets, and arts & crafts activities to inspire and educate kids on all that the national parks have to offer. The details, illustrations, and fun facts included with each product were painstakingly researched to ensure accuracy and faithfulness to our national parks and their inhabitants.
Kids can test their skills to see if they can catch and throw like a bear with this hilarious outdoor adventure set! Strap on the bear paw gloves and bear heads and have a game of catch with the stick-and-release accessories—or just role play like a wild bear and go a little wild!
Inspire kids to explore outdoor adventures with this fun and colorful pretend play set, which features a pair of pretend binoculars that lets kids look at scenes on disk. This play set also includes a safety whistle, flashlight, first aid kit, wooden granola bar, map, and trail guide, plus an adjustable belt for easy storage.
