Toy ID Resources

As a collector and reseller, for over 25 years, I have saved all kinds of different websites to help identify the toys that I come across.  If you have other sites that you use, please let me know via email, so that I can share them with the whole class! 😀

This is a MAJOR work in progress so I will be adding more as time goes by!

If you see "ARCHIVED" it means that I have gone to the Internet Archive - Way Back Machine, to find pages that no longer exist. 

Sites with several toy lines: 

   BOY's Toys

3-3/4" Archives - Action Figures of this size and their playsets and accessories.
