I always used to make fun of my grandmother for doing all her Christmas shopping months early, but I definitely see the appeal now. Summer is when TONS of things go on sale, including toys. And right now, Well.ca has something special happening. All Melissa & Doug toys in stock on their site are marked down!
When you add all the pretend food, colouring books and craft kits together, you get toys and sets priced as low as $1.86. And let me tell you, prices like that make me want to do a little Christmas shopping of my own.
One of my favourite Melissa & Doug sets of all time is included, and that's the Let's Play House! kit. For $29.99 (from $39.99), you get a kid-sized broom, mop, duster, dustpan and hand broom that will (hopefully) encourage them to get cleaning. My cousin's kids love theirs, so it'll probably be a hit in your home, too.
If you know a kiddo celebrating a birthday sometime soon, you need to see their Birthday Cake. This wooden set comes with six ready-to-cut slices of cake (as well as removable candles and toppings) – and it's the one cake you'll get to use over and over again for everybody's birthdays. Maybe this way, no one ends up spitting all over the food when they blow the candles out? You can pick the 34-piece set up for $18.74.
This sale runs until July 14, so there's almost a week left to shop. Orders over $35 will ship for free, unless you life in what Well.ca considers a "remote area" that qualifies for additional shipping fees.
