Hello and welcome to The Toy Archives!

This site was created by a small group of dedicated collectors who are committed to building the greatest collecting community around. We recognize that while we share the same love for toys, the friendships that we’ve developed over years of collecting are far more valuable than even the most prized possessions.

First and foremost, this site was created to serve as a channel to bring collectors together. Whether you collect prototypes or production, every toy line or just one, or maybe even only a specific character focus, this is the community for you. By featuring content with industry experts, collectors, dealers, and more, this site will serve as a resource to seasoned and new collectors alike!

At The Toy Archives, we understand that everyone approaches collecting in their own way. Whether you’re collecting on a tight budget, collecting only dead mint examples, or collecting a little bit of everything, we are here to provide education and resources that will help you on your collecting journey. As passionate collectors ourselves, our goal is to create a community of knowledge sharing, conversation, and enjoyment.

Additionally, our marketplace (release date still TBD) will offer a secure place to buy the toys and collectibles we all love from reputable dealers and proven sellers. Gone are the days of having to monitor 10,000 Facebook groups to find your next purchase and even then, cross your fingers that you don’t get scammed. Vendors within our marketplace will be thoroughly vetted and have a proven track record- eliminating the risk to you, the collector.

We truly hope you enjoy the site- check back often as we’ll be adding content regularly. Be sure to subscribe to get updates as new content is added!
