Business is all fun and games at Discovery Toys. The company sells educational toys, games, books, and music for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary-aged children. It also promotes products for children with autism and other special needs. Discovery Toys markets its products online and through a base of several thousand independent sales representatives, who host parties at customers' homes in the US and Canada. The company was founded in 1978 by Lane Nemeth. It has been owned by Chicago-based holding company Draupnir since 2008.

Discovery Toys relies on the efforts of its independent sales force, which includes stay-at-home moms and school teachers. Interest in independent sales jobs, such as those offered by Discovery Toys, has increased in recent years amid the recession and lingering tough economic conditions. Many Americans have entered the niche because they need a replacement income stream -- usually on account of job loss or to supplement their incomes as raises and bonuses have disappeared. Independent sales representatives for Discovery Toys are free to set their own hours and can earn vacations if certain sales goals are met.
