Discovery Toys Review

The purpose of this webpage is to provide an independent review of Discovery Toys. Please know that I am not affiliated with the company in any way. Also, Discovery Toys is a registered trademark, owned by the company. All information was collected from independent research.

About the Company

Discovery Toys is a network marketing/direct sales company that manufactures educational toys for children. They use the multi-level marketing business model to sell and distribute their products. That means that independent “Educational Consultants” sell the products via word-of-mouth advertising at in-home parties.

Lane Nemeth started the company in 1978. It currently does business in the United States and Canada. Their motto is “Teach. Play. Inspire.” The company headquarters is located in Livermore, California.

Discover Toys manufactures high quality educational toys for infants, toddlers, pre-school and school-age children. Most of the products are for children between the ages of 0-8 years old. They also offer educational products for special needs children and children with autism. The products include toys, books, music and games. All products come with a life-time guarantee. Additionally, the products focus on math, exploration, reading, language, thinking, motor skills and expression. Most of the toys are $20 or less.

Getting Started

How do you get started in your own Discovery Toys business? First of all, you need a sponsor. That person is the person who shares the business opportunity with you and agrees to train you and help you. Once you find a potential sponsor, you pay the registration fee and agree to the company’s rules and regulations. At this point, you become an “Educational Consultant.” Next, you can purchase a starter pack, which gives you several sample toys and business support materials. Once you do that, you now have your own Discovery Toys business.

I should note that if you can’t find a sponsor in your local area, just call the company and then will find someone for you.

How You Make Money

How do you earn money with a Discovery Toys business? Actually, it’s quite simple. You start by having “in home parties” where you conduct a sales presentation and share the benefits of the products. When you sell the products at the in-home party, you keep the wholesale-retail difference. You can also earn free products and bonuses based off the total sales from the party.

Additionally, you can also earn income by sharing the business opportunity with others and helping new people start their own Discovery Toys business. When you do that, you can earn overrides and commissions off their sales. You can also earn leadership bonuses, expense paid trips and get plenty of recognition for building a large Discovery Toys business.

To keep things simple you make money by selling the products, by sponsoring others, and by building leaders. 

Tips for Building a Discovery Toys Business

How do you build a large Discovery Toys business?  I think there are a few keys to success.

Of course, you need to use your own products so you are familiar with them and know the features and benefits.  This will make it easier for you to sell the products.

Another suggestion is to be COMMITTED to your business for several YEARS. Even if you are building your business part-time, you need to work it at least a few hours a week, every week, for a few years.  Rome wasn’t built in a day.  It takes most businesses a year or so just to get profitable and work out the kinks.

It also helps to have a game plan.  You should have a simple business plan and have a clear marketing strategy that details how you will find leads and get new customers and reps.  You should also find a mentor in your upline who is successful and willing to help you.  And finally, you must make your business a high priority in your life.  No, it doesn’t have to be up there with your family or day job, but you must make it a priority and schedule time to build your business every week.  Success won’t happen by accident.

Some people earn a full-time income selling Discovery Toys.  And others earn enough to supplement their income and/or get their products free.  Many reps join just to get a discount on their purchases.  What you do is totally up to you.

Building a Team

The key to making the big money with Discovery Toys is to leverage yourself by building team of customers and distributors.  Ultimately, your goal is to find a few customers, sponsor a few people and then teach everyone on your team to do the same thing.

Most of the successful distributors in every company sponsor at least 50-100 people personally and then shift their efforts to help these people succeed.  By doing so, you can eventually have a team with hundreds, even thousands of people.

As you sponsor people, work with them closely to teach them the ropes and help them succeed.  Ultimately, your goal is to find three to five LEADERS who are as serious about the business as you are. Once you do that, just shift your efforts to helping and supporting these folks.

Final Thoughts

After conducting a thorough analysis of Discovery Toys, I think it’s a viable business opportunity for anyone. The company has a proven reputation, strong financial backing, a great product at a great price, and great leadership. More importantly, they have a strong infrastructure in place to support their independent sales force. Simply put, the company seems to have its act together.

  1. I did have to giggle a little bit when you said that we should use the products ourselves. I guess I could use some more education, but I didn’t think I would start using kid’s educational toys….LOL

    I believe this would be a great business opportunity for parents of younger children. They are usually friends with other people that have children, and would be able to share the products and business opportunity with them.

    I am going to tell both of my sons about this, as they have children at younger ages. Maybe my daughter in law’s would be interested in Discovery Toys. Thank you for sharing this.

    1. I can say that if I am buying a toy for my children 98% of the time it is a learning toy. I have never felt bad about doing so no matter how much slack I received from other parents. My children loved playing with them while of course learning. I have found that they rarely chose the other toys. I can say that I enjoy playing with them as well. I have never thought of belonging to an MLM that had toys because I guess I wasn’t aware until now that they existed. This would be something for parents to think about getting into because everyone, not just parents buys toys for children at one point or another.

  2. Discovery Toys is an interesting business. I don’t normally associate educational products, let alone learning tools for children, with network marketing. It seems the majority of MLM businesses target adult consumers, although I suppose in this case adults (parents of young children) are still being targeted to purchase for their young children (the actual consumers). I’m curious, are in-home parties the only sales presentation method used by Discovery Toys distributors?

  3. I love hearing about new innovations and services that are being offered to help businesses grow and market themselves more effectively. There are so many great tools for businesses out there that people do not know about, so thank you for sharing and bringing this to our attention!

  4. This is absolutely the most comprehensive analysis that I ever came across about Discovery Toys. The company according to this review appears to have a viable reputation, proven strong financial background and most importantly some impressive range of products.

    I never have experienced business with Discovery Toys but this business review has inspired me to begin selling these for a part-time income.

    1. Discovery Toys is a great company. Sure, it’s not for everyone, but it works really well for stay at home moms or anyone interested in selling stuff for kids. With some hard work and a good game plan, I think it would be quite simple to supplement your income with Discovery Toys.

  5. I love Discovery Toys! I first found out about the toys about a decade or so ago at a local community fair. A woman had a booth set up with several toys in bright primary colors displayed. My first impulse was to walk the other way, as I usually do, but my daughter (who was about six at the time) made a beeline for the booth. I was impressed with the quality of the toys, as well as the educational potential. I wound up placing an order at the booth, and now my youngest daughter still plays with that toy.

    1. What great products! Discovery Toys seems to be a great option for anyone with a use for or interest in quality, educational toys with the potential to make a small profit in their free time. An exceptional product with a well established organization is winning combination for a successful company.
