Selling in the Toys & Hobby Category

What’s new in Toys & Hobbies?

At the end of September 2012, eBay will launch new category pages that will provide buyers with a more visual, inspirational buying & browsing experience—helping them find your listings even faster than before.

When shoppers come to eBay to look for toys, they’ll find:

  • Customized toy browse pages
    • Kids & Family
    • Collectors & Hobbyist
    • All toy and hobby subcategories (e.g. Action Figures)
  • Constantly refreshing, dynamic scrolling merchandising modules showing top deals, most popular items by category, top gift ideas and much more!
  • A new 'Toy Finder'
  • Easier filtering by item specifics directly from search results pages

Get a peek at the new shopping experience:

Be sure to use item specifics—help buyers find your great inventory

Buyers use item specifics to refine searches and locate items faster. The new item specifics below will be particularly important in the Toys & Hobbies category; they’ll be used to populate exciting experiences like the toy finder and new search filters.

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Character Family
  • Brand

When typing in an item specific value, a list of recommended values will appear. When appropriate, always choose a recommended value instead of entering your own.
