Toys and Games

Items listed in the Toys and Games category and its subcategories may be intended for a variety of age groups, including adults. It is important to accurately describe your items, including what the item is, its intended use, its intended age group, and any age restrictions. If you sell an item that is not intended for use by anyone under a certain age, be sure to clearly state that in your listing description.

Some things to consider when listing an item in the Toys category or any of its subcategories:

  • Is the item intended only for adult collectors?

  • Is the item intended for decorative use only?

  • Is there a recommended age group for this item?

  • Does the item present any hazards (such as strangulation, ingestion, aspiration, or choking) to children under a certain age? 

Though not exhaustive, you may find the following resources helpful when listing items under the Toys and Games category or its subcategories. Please know that Etsy cannot advise on how to comply with the law.

Note: Etsy is not able to say with certainty that all third party resources are up to date or accurate. We recommend you speak with a qualified expert for advice about your specific items.
