OUR STORY

Discovery Toys is the premier learning toy company dedicated to helping children learn and grow through Pure Play. A trusted brand for almost 40 years, we specialize in premium quality, kid-powered learning products for newborns through school aged children. The company began when an early childhood educator first brought together a group of dedicated teachers, mothers and parents to take on the important topic of education for children through play. Selling to groups of eager parents in the home, Discovery Toys, the network marketing / direct sales company, was born.

Generations later, we continue this tradition as the foremost direct selling company in the category.

LAYERS OF LEARNING

DT Toys combines multiple levels of learning in every toy with safety and quality standards beyond the national standards. As many of our customers and educational consultant representatives can testify, a Discovery Toys product is not a typical educational toy that you can find at your local toy shop.

Each Discovery Toys product incorporates multiple “Layers of Learning” to: Engage a child’s multiple senses and all three learning styles and Empower the child to grow and advance with the product.

 


Our Team works carefully with our design and manufacturing partners to incorporate a unique play experience into each of our products, an experience that stimulates multiple centers in the brain simultaneously, an experience that promotes both critical thinking AND open-ended imaginary play.

Our hope is to help each child develop the fundamental skills and passion for future learning success and for innovative thinking.

AUTISM & SPECIAL NEEDS

Many of our products have useful applications and play experiences for children with autism and special needs. Some of our greatest advocates are occupational therapists and special needs teachers and caregivers.

Children with autism tend to experience several broad areas of significant difficulty. By identifying our products in our DT Catalogs that support development needs across the six general areas of difficulty, we make it easier for parents and caregivers to best support their own children’s learning and skill needs.

We work closely with respected institutions and experts to develop and identify products each season that can help. Every toy in our catalog has an Autism Symbol that corresponds with the specific learning each toy supports. We also have toy charts available to help select the most appropriate products to assist with particular developmental challenges.
