The Toy Peddler is part of the hobbyDB family, but what is hobbyDB?

Built by collectors, for collectors, discover the ultimate home for collectors and fans worldwide.

Here at The Toy Peddler, we have been getting some questions about how The Toy Peddler fits into the hobbyDB family. We thought it would be good to start by sharing some of the vision and mission of what hobbyDB has in store. The Toy Peddler will always remain its own marketplace, with its own look and feel, but we wanted to share what we will all be working to build in terms of new features in the future.

At hobbyDB, it has always been their mission to create the ultimate resource for collectors and fans worldwide. A place where you can explore, track, and celebrate your passions, while connecting with like-minded geeks, builders, and enthusiasts who love all the same things that you do. Thanks to the support of the hobbyDB community, they have made giant leaps forward in creating a home for the collectors everywhere.




Collecting connects us to who we are.

Whether it’s baseball cards, action figures, stamps, teddy bears, records, coins or mid-century furniture, every year seventy-five million people enjoy collecting something. It’s a way to escape the cares of the world for a while – a relaxing retreat to a happier place where we can surround ourselves with the things we love the most.

But collecting can be hard work!

With information scattered all over the Internet and no one central marketplace, fans can spend hours determining what they want, tracking what they have and working out the best ways to move on items they no longer need. All of which cuts down on time spent enjoying their stuff! What’s missing is one central place where they can research, value, track, buy AND sell!

That’s why we built hobbyDB

And we can come to you!

White Label Databases/Marketplaces

Already have a favorite spot on the web but feel it would benefit from the hobbyDB touch? Perhaps a database just of the items your site is about? A similarly-themed exclusive marketplace? Well, we can now power the hobbyDB experience on any website, blog or forum so site owners can offer their communities access to all of the great hobbyDB features, but in an environment which looks and feels like their own site. AND the site owner can generate additional income from revenue share in the form of a percentage of marketplace transaction revenue. Perfect for plowing back into site hosting fees or using it to buy more stuff. And so much easier than having to worry about ads on your site.

Our Aspirations –

Power a database with every collectible ever made (Eventually!)

Geeks Unite! Built and maintained by the most awesome community of super-fans and collectors around, our goal is to add 1 Billion collectibles to the database by 2025 (and 100 billion by 2050).

Become the Ultimate Collectible Influencers

With more than 590,000 users and growing, we’re uniting to create a powerful sphere of influence. We’ve already partnered with big names in the collectibles industry — Funko, Mego, and Topps — and with the power of our user network, we’ll continue to offer valuable input on what true fans want to see created next.
