Please check the table below to see if the categories you sell in are changing. If we are making a change to your category, please make sure your current listings are updated with all relevant item specifics. Occasionally we ask you adopt a value in a seller tag to help us facilitate moving your item to the correct surviving or newly created category. We offer additional item specifics recommendations for optimal search visibility as well. After the changes are live, please review your listings again.

NOTABLE CATEGORY CHANGES

  • Creating a new Electronic Learning Toys category to support separation of Learning Systems from Games and Accessories.
