This is Our Story

Explorers. Parents. Grandparents to A Curious Bunch With A Passion For Play – Meet The Founders

Do you remember a time when childhood was all about play? It was a time to explore, make friends, and build…forts, castles, and towers; your imagination was the limit.

Since those days, we continue to enjoy exploring, playing, and building. First, as young builders with our own wooden blocks and building sets. Then with our children and now our grandchildren. We have spent a lifetime creating castles to be rescued from, forts to hide in, and towers higher than you can imagine.

It was out of our love for exploration, building, and play, that we launched Discovery Building Sets.

What Does Discovery Building Sets Believe?

We believe in the power of play that is fun, spontaneous, and imaginative. That it provides an opportunity to engage with the children in our lives. That it creates moments to laugh, love, and discover life’s greatest experiences. Play creates time to develop a sense of community and a connection to our ever-changing world.

We believe that childhood is short and needs to be cherished. All children need more time to play and the freedom to explore. Adults need playtime, too! After all, a playful, childlike spirit is what keeps us young.

How Can Discovery Building Sets Help?

We aspire to provide the tools to encourage an environment of open-ended play and social interaction.

Quality building sets are simple, beautiful sets with no bells, whistles, or flashing lights. Without all the distractions, children can imagine, create, and build something extraordinary.

Diverse building sets encourage time spent together — a time that inspires meaningful experiences, shapes lasting memories, and guides children’s lives.

Open-ended sets support high-value play that fosters curious discovery, self-expression, and experimentation.

We help to enhance childhood experiences by focusing on the positive influence that building sets and block play have on children.
