As a parent to a toddler or young child, you quickly learn the difference between good quality products and poor products for children. We have found, for example, that just because something has the Disney name on it does not mean it is good quality. We have been happy with Melissa & Doug products though. Especially their crayons.
Allie, Anna & Emily each received a Melissa & Doug decorate-your-own-mirror set for their birthdays. I like this video because it captures each of them focused (and behaved!).
