Wooden Toys BENHO & Melissa & Doug "Cousins" :)

Benho Toy Company is a part of Zhejiang Hexin Toys who manufacture for large companies such as Hasbro Toys, Melissa & Doug, Tomy, The Children’s Group and others.source

We got our princess' Melissa and Doug Peg Boards in Toys R Us - Malaysia. They seem to look pretty much like the Benho Toys so I searched for it and found that they are certainly related. Their manufacturers are the same. Difference is M&D is an American brand while B is China. The prices has a big gap too, with M&D having thrice the price.

With the country as his biggest weakness, Benho seems to have been building a good reputation and earned quite a number of certifications like ISO and EN, FSC.
European standard EN 71 specifies safety requirements for toys. Compliance with the standard is legally required for all toys sold in the European Union. from wikipedia - click link above
