Meet Melissa Bernstein, co-founder of Melissa & Doug at Boscovs Milford

October 25, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Meet Melissa Bernstein, co-founder of Melissa & Doug at Boscovs Milford

Come hear from Melissa Bernstein, co-founder of Melissa & Doug at Boscov’s at the Connecticut Post Mall in Milford, COnnecticut on Thursday, October 25th from 4 to 5 pm. Melissa is an expert on how to let children reach their full potential while navigating the current crisis of an overscheduled and overstimulated environment facing all parents today. Boscov’s believes it’s time to give childhood back to kids!

Boscov’s believes your child should be free to imagine, create and play, encouraging them to explore and discover. That’s why we’ve partnered with Melissa & Doug in our stores and why we fully support their #TakeBackChildhood initiative. In an effort to promote creativity, inspire imagination, reveal passions and build the character of our children, the Take Back Childhood campaign focuses on unscheduled, independent, Free Play time. This provides kids with a launching pad to ignite imagination and a sense of wonder so they can discover themselves, their passions and their purpose.

Melissa Bernstein is the co-founder of Melissa & Doug, maker of toys for creative and imaginative play. She is an expert and passionate advocate for healthy early childhood development. Concerned that this generation of children is missing out on the kind of unstructured downtime that enables them to find their passions and purpose through exploration, Melissa is leading a movement to #TakeBackChildhood. She dreams of a day when kids are free from over-scheduling, undue pressure, and digital distractions so they may discover themselves, develop into free thinkers, and realize their full potential.

This free event will be held in the Boscov’s Community Auditorium at our new Boscov’s store in the Connecticut Post Mall.
