Learn More About the Toyhive

What started as a simple hobby of collecting a few rare Star Wars collectibles has evolved into a thriving Internet-based small business. In January 2005, we launched a handful of auctions on eBay under the name of ChloeandJupiter“. During that first month, we made a total of 50 dollars and had a lot of fun working at it. Over the months the number of customers grew, and so did our toy collection.

ToyHive is a small online business that buys and sells collectible toys and games. It all started with a simple hobby of collecting Star Wars action figures. Later, in January 2005, we posted a handful of auctions on eBay. Over the years, our toy collection grew and so did our customer base. In 2015, ToyHive obtained the yellow shooting star score on eBay. As of June 3, 2017, we’ve sold and shipped toys to more than 25,000 customers worldwide. Today, ToyHive is a recognized Top-Rated Seller on eBay.

What’s in stock?

ToyHive’s inventory includes toys from popular movie and TV franchises like Star Wars, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, The Muppets, Futurama, The Simpsons and The Walking Dead.  You’ll also find a great selection of toys made by our favorite toy design companies like:  McFarlane,  Medicom and Palisades.  Finally, we have a wide and unique selection of vintage toys and games.  There are way too many categories to list here.

Where do I buy it?

ToyHive does a significant amount of business through eBay, the web’s premier auction site. We are also an authorized Amazon.com reseller.
