Discovery #Mindblown & Discovery Toy
Redlands Distribution have secured the exclusive rights to distribute Discovery and Discovery #Mindblown toy lines throughout the UK and Ireland. Discovery was created back in 1985 and was formally known as the Discovery Channel. It is now available in over 400 million households worldwide.
The existing Discovery lines will continue to be manufactured and offered from the RC Tarantula, Magnetic Blocks and Space Projectors. However, the well-known Discovery brand is now being licensed to create a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathmatics) range of products known as Discovery #Mindblown.
Discovery #MindBlown is a purpose-driven brand deeply rooted in Discovery’s guiding principles of exploration, education, and entertainment. The Discovery STEM line offers a full range of products, in cohesive packaging, which can be added as a standalone range or as an enhancement to an existing range of STEM lines
