About us

Hello and welcome to Discovery Playtime, where we make learning fun!

Discovery Playtime was founded in 2017 by Mireia Lopez, a primary school teacher with a Master's in Educational Psychology and a Certificate in Therapeutic Play Skills. She is also qualified as a spare time children entertainer and as a Spanish teacher and she has 2 kids which have proved, more than anything, that PLAY is not a luxury, but a necessity.


When DISCOVERY PLAYTIME was born in 2017, Mireia (Mia) was running workshops for babies, toddlers and children with autism with the idea of promoting learning through play experiences where kids could learn and improve basic life skills while parents get to spend quality time with their kids and socialise in a safe and fun environment.

After organising and running hundreds of workshops and events for over 3 years including messy and sensory play sessions, children entertainment, corporate events, afterschool activities and so much more, Discovery Playtime Toy Shop was born. We only sell toys that we have tried and tested and we know they provide the kind of fun and learning that children need.


We strongly believe in the power of play as a way for children to communicate and to learn about the world and about themselves. For this reason, all of the toys available here aim to help children to reach their full potential through hands-on play activities.

We have a wide range of educational, sensory and wooden toys to allow children to find the most suited materials and toys depending on their interests and needs and we add new products regularly to improve the variety of resources available.


Everything comes from experienced and registered suppliers that have been designing and manufacturing toys for many years to create the best tools for your child. All of our toys come with a CE mark (safety certificate) and our wooden toys are also made from sustainable wood and non-toxic paints. We are moving towards a more environmentally friendly production so we have plastic free toys available and our packaging is mostly compostable or reused.

Thank you for your interest in Discovery Playtime learning toys, I hope you find what you are looking for, and we are here to help whenever needed.

Happy Playtime!
