For the past three years, Jamie Kirk has offered educational toys, encouraging development and play skills for all ages, under the banner of Discovery Toys with Jamie.
Working with Discovery Toys, a direct-sales company founded in California more than 40 years ago, Jamie says it’s “all about the play and learning experience” with the products she offers locally.
“I want it to be a fun and engaging shopping experience,” she says, adding she played with Discovery Toys products – “Marbleworks,” “Dinoworks,” “Hexus” and “Stacking Owls,” for example – when she was growing up.
More recently, Jamie has used the toys in her career as an occupational therapist.
“When I became an occupational therapist, the toys were something I used in my practice because of their quality and how great they were for targeting the skills I was working on with my clients. Now, I have them in my home to play with my daughter and support her development.”
In choosing to work with Discovery Toys, she saw an opportunity to offer popular products that are otherwise unavailable locally.
“I like that I can share quality toys that are both fun and provide endless opportunities for development.”
