We bring family together

Step2 Discovery, LLC., which includes Step2 and Backyard Discovery, is the largest outdoor toy company in North America, with leading market share positions in swing sets, playhouses, activity tables, play kitchens and ride-ons as well as outdoor home and garden products.

Together, we are on a mission to inspire active, imaginative, and creative play that gets kids moving.

How Step2 and Backyard Discovery Became One Family

Step2 was acquired by Aterian Investment Partners in October 2016 and Backyard Discovery was acquired by the same private equity firm in August 2015.

As a result, due to the natural synergies between both brands and a shared mission to bring family together, Step2 and Backyard Discovery decided to integrate and become one company to offer families products that enhance the family dynamic and ultimately allow for more time together.
