Discovery Toys: Toys That Teach



This holiday season as I am looking for toys for my children, I am looking for high quality and something that teaches them a lot.  We are not looking to buy a lot of toys so we do want what we buy to last and to played with more than once.

I was introduced to Discovery Toys when I was a nanny 8 years ago.  I remember a relative buying them for the children.  The toys were not electronic and everything required the children to do it on their own.  Compared to the high priced electronic toys, I truly expected these to pale in comparison.  It was indeed the opposite.  The children would rather play with the toys from Discovery Toys than with the other toys.

When I was approached to do a review, I was thrilled.  I had forgotten the name of the company but when I received the catalog - there were the same toys!  Normally toys change every couple of years, there are few toys that stay around.  I found that most of the toys from Discovery Toys do not change.  They do their research and not only are their toys popular but kids are "inspired" by them.

We were sent the Try-Angle to review with Gabriel and Gracie.  This toy is ages 6 months to toddler.  This toy is great because you can lay it flat for a baby to play with while laying on their tummy or as baby gets older, you can fold it up and put it on a table or on the floor for them to explore.  It is a great activity center that both of my kids enjoyed.  Gabriel is still too little for it but Gracie had fun with at our kitchen table.


Our favorite product that Discovery Toys sent us was Jam Session.  Normally when we think of a Jam Session - we think electronic.  Not so with Discovery Toys!  Jam Session comes with a Hand Drum and Mallet, Guiro and Mallet, 2 Castanets, and a Tambourine.  It also comes with a CD but we didn't try that because Gracie and I were having fun making our own music.  I took the Tambourine and she had the hand drum and mallet.  Oh boy, did she have fun!  She was all over the house drumming on her little drum.  She played with this for over an hour!  Jam Session is definitely a lot of fun and great for the little musician in your life.

Jam Session is $45 and Try-Angle is $30. You can purchase all of your items from a consultant for Discovery Toys.  This would definitely be a fun party to have in your home!  To find the distributor closest to you, go to the Discovery Toys website www.discoverytoys.com and click at the top of the page “Find a Consultant.” Most consultants have websites with their phone numbers listed, you can contact them online or call them if you have any questions.

Disclosure: This review is based on my own honest unbiased opinion of Discovery Toys. You may or may not agree with my opinion. I was sent product free of charge to review. No one from Discovery Toys was involved in the writing of this post.
