"Fun learning with Melissa & Doug Hide and Seek Board"


This Melissa & Doug magnetic hide and seek board belongs to my 3 year old son and I chose this toy for him quite a while ago now and the reason I decided to get this in the first place was because it seemed like a fun toy for him that would also be great for his learning. Melissa & Doug toys always seem to be great for this. This is something that is easy to get hold of as you can purchase this on Amazon for £14.99.

About Melissa & Doug Magnetic Hide and Seek Board

This magnetic hide and seek board is made by the well known brand Melissa & Doug which is known for high quality toys. The toy is a rectangle shape and made out of a strong thick durable wood and is also recommended for children aged 3 years and over.

The board is divided into nine squares which are separated from each other by all the squares being different colours, and in each square on this board there is a small wooden door the can open and close. The doors are securely attached on to the board by a small metal hinge which enables it to open and close with ease. The doors also have a little finger gap at the side so children can easily get hold on the side of the wooden doors and open them by themselves.

When you open each door there will be a piece inside with a picture on and there are magnetic so stick to the board on the inside. Starting from the first door on the board you have a a farm house picture on the door and then inside you have a magnetic cow piece, then next to that the door has lunchbox with a food and drink piece inside the door and at the end of this first row you have a door with a present and a teddy bear piece inside. On the second row of foors you firstly have a cookie jar with cookies inside behind the door, then next a garage on the door with a car inside and the last on this row is an oven with a chicken cooking piece inside. On the final row of doors you have a dog kennel with a dog inside, a bird cage with a bird piece inside and then finally a treasure chest with a treasure piece inside.

Personal Experience

I have to say this is quite a good toy to have for children as there is more than one way a child can play with this. My son enjoys playing with this toy but it is the sort of toy which is best played with whilst an adult is alongside them to play along with them, and I say this because it is the sort of game where an adult will ask the child a question related to the board and then they have to answer the questions. An example of this is sometimes when my son plays with this I will put all the correct pieces behind the correct doors they go in and ask a question such as “where could I find the dog? My son would then have to try and figure out by the pictures on the doors, where the dog might be. There are many different games you could try and play with this, you just have to choose something that is at the right level for the child playing with it. My son loves trying to figure out where certain pieces are and he is able to open and close the doors with easy by himself. This isn't something I would say he plays with a lot, it is more something he will get out now and again.

Final Thoughts

Overall I would recommend this Melissa & Doug hide and seek board because firstly the quality of it is excellent and is definitely very durable. It is also great for developing many skills for a child and I would say is very beneficial to learning. The price also seems fairly decent too.
