To our Toy Peddler Community,
We want to thank you for your trust in The Toy Peddler and hobbyDB and what we are working to achieve. On behalf of our entire team, we are wishing you all safety and wellness, especially during these uncertain times. Rest assured that we are committed to keeping TTP running smoothly throughout this crisis and are dedicated to providing fun experiences that encourage you to escape into your fandoms.
Late last year, we decided to open our doors to YOU, the collecting community and give our TTP members a chance to own a piece of The Toy Peddler. Since then, we’ve raised more than $100,000 and have over 280 collectors that now own a piece of TTP/hobbyDB.
In two weeks, our first crowdfunding round will come to a close. After speaking to many of you, we decided that it was important that we give our community members the best share price possible to ensure everyone can have a chance to own a piece of TTP/hobbyDB. The beauty of crowdfunding (and why we decided to go this route) is that anyone can invest, especially our dedicated community members who contribute to the site every single day. So with everything else going on in our communities, we decided it was right to adjust our valuation in order to give our supporters the best deal possible before the round officially closes.
With this change, your investment now gets you close to twice the number of shares that you had with the previous valuation, as we want this to be a good deal for you.
So what’s in it for you? A lot actually.
For the first time ever, we’re opening our doors to collectors worldwide and giving you the opportunity to own a piece of The Toy Peddler & hobbyDB. It used to be that investing in awesome projects and great teams making cool things (and potentially lots of $$$) was just for the top 1%. But now, thanks to the JOBS Act, EVERYONE gets the opportunity to own a piece of something great that they love! Equity crowdfunding basically allows anyone to easily invest in early-stage pre-IPO companies that they believe will do great things!
And as an investor, if we do well, so will you. When you invest in us, you are buying actual shares of the company. As we move forward, the overall goal is to become the epicenter of the collectible world and when possible, pay dividends to our shareholders, based on your ownership percentage of the company. Also, there is always the opportunity of acquisition, where you would receive a portion of the payment of the sales price.
We have already seen some of those folks who were on the fence due to the higher valuation come in. In fact, over the weekend, we received an additional $30,000 in investments.
And don’t worry, people who have already invested get grandfathered in at the new price!

Now is the time to get in if you haven’t already. The official close date is April 17th.
