Recently, a fellow toy soldier collector sent me some photos of wonderful dioramas he had created with his toy troops. They are so well done that I thought it would be nice to share them with readers of my blog. So here they are.

Melissa and Doug Traditional Toys!

by Radar Toys

Here at Radar Toys it is no secret that we love action figures. Iron Man, Spiderman, G.I. Joe's and Star Wars -- we have serious roots in the collectible arena. But what about Mom and Dad that need traditional toys for their young ones? For the parents whose children are too young to scream, "I want Iron Man!" --- it is becoming harder and harder to find durable and trustworthy traditional toys. Thankfully there is still one company producing great traditional toys. We are very proud to carry Melissa and Doug merchandise. They specialize in wooden and plush toys of quality at affordable prices.

Blocks, puzzles, and much more -- Melissa and Doug make very durable and uncomplicated toys for children that still leave plenty of room for creativity and fun. What is cool is that many of their toys have a learning angle incorporated that help children to have fun with growing and progressing. Whether its the awesome wooden lacing shoe that helps teach shoe lacing or the magnetic chart that helps with homework and chores -- Melissa and Doug remains a brand that is recognized with quality and durability.

Hi everyone,
