Invest in the future of The Toy Peddler & hobbyDB

Escape into a world of diecast

TTP is one of the oldest Diecast sales sites on the internet. From the rarest Redline Rear Load Beach Bombs to a car freshly pulled off the peg, we have had it ALL for sale. After 20 years of business, we continue to be your best source for collecting all things Diecast.

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!

Why this matters –

For years we’ve been told eBay is the only marketplace to buy and sell collectibles; that we’d just have to put up with their huge fees and heavy-handed behavior. .

We are working hard to deliver a service purely made for both the buyer and seller. One site that has all the information and features you need to power your diecast shopping experience.

I've been designing Hot Wheels since 1969 and I love how hobbyDB is set up to document everything about the subject, from the cars to the designers that made them!

I use hobbyDB mostly for research; there is a vast amount of knowledge by worldwide collectors on this site. I also use it to buy those hard to find pieces and to sell off my extras. It’s simple and easy.
Jim Garbaczewski

I used to strictly use eBay for researching diecast... but no more. Since discovering HDB, I find it much more reliable for pricing, fact finding, and photos. Nothing sketchy about HDB unlike other places. It’s my new landing spot for all things Diecast.
