If you are looking for a specific toy, check out my Top Favorite Toys Page. Most likely your toy is listed there and it will tell you where to look on the site to see if I have one in stock.
We usually ship by Priority Mail through the Post office. Shipping is safer and faster! If an item is large or oversize, we may ship by Parcel Post. The postal rates have gone up and they charge more by size. Especially to zip codes farther away from us. If you are in a hurry, we will ship faster of course! Delivery Time depends on how far you are away from us in Upstate NY. We always add insurance or delivery confirmation if needed.
Priority shipping is 2 days to East Coast Customers, 3-4 days to Mid West, 4-5 West Coast. Parcel Post is pretty slow. To the west coast, it takes at least a week!
If you use Express Mail we will ship same day!
*There will be no receipt in your package. Your receipt will be the "Order Confirmation" that you automatically receive from my shopping cart by email after your order is completed. You will also receive an email from my credit card terminal bank if you paid by ccard, or a paypal receipt if you use paypal. So you need not receive another email from me! *AOL Customers: Check your SPAM folder for your receipt!
*You will not get an email when item is shipped. Orders are usually shipped out the next business day. Sometimes a day or two later due to life circumstances... but I try to ship out FAST! If you need it really quick due to a deadline or birthday, etc..let me know!
International Orders: Shipping for international orders are determined by weight. Only items 4 lbs and under can be shipped by International First Class Mail. All other items now have to be shipped by priority mail. So please select Priority International Mail for items orders over 4lbs. If the weight of your order is less - and shipping is less - I will refund any overages! If the shopping cart doesn't show shipping charge - could be a glitch with the post office server, I will let you know charges after I weigh the items.
*We ship worldwide Priority Mail - Preferred! International orders should be paid by MC/Visa/Amex or Paypal at my shopping cart.
All Items Listed on Inventory pages Are IN Stock - I usually remove items as soon as they sell.
Note: I have named certain pages "Girls" & "Boys" only to help in search of items specific to a certain gender for 1950s-1960s era. Not being sexist.. According to our era, War toys belonged to boys, homemaking and dolls - to girls. I was a tomboy and hated dolls & always preferred the "boys toys" so feel free to explore both pages!
We Have A Search Engine
We have a Search Engine - it is located on the index page. Many people do not find what they are looking for because of bad spelling or inputting common words.. Please check the Search Engine Tips page before using it.
*Newer additions to each category are put at top of category - so you don't have to scroll if you have already checked the category/section previously!
Now you can catch our updates on Facebook:
* I have had so many requests for toys, I no longer keep a "want list". Everything is first come, first serve.
We ship FAST & send your order by Priority Mail! or will ship Overnight Express if you need it quick!
*Shipping is extra unless otherwise noted. Orders over $125 are shipped free within the US. Some items may be marked Oversize which means it can't be combined with other items..it will have to ship by itself because of it's size.
*On items marked Large Oversize items, like ride-on toys, shipping is not included. Item may be too large to figure shipping without a zip code. I can meet Northeast USA Customers or deliver.
*Gift Service Available: We will gift wrap a purchase for you & send to the person you request at no extra charge!
100% Satisfaction Guaranteed with a Full Refund within 10 days.
"Dear Joyce: There are toys here I have not seen or thought about since I was a kid, and when the images slowly appear I almost cry. I am at an age where I often think of times past, pets I use to have, the home I grew up in and and the long lost toys I used to have.....Your web-site looks cool, the music is perfect, photos about as good as I've seen and it's obvious that you have terrific pride in what you're doing. I can navigate around TimeWarp easier than any other site and it's way more fun too. And let us not forget the best thing to note...your toys rule! Condition, selection and pricing are out-standing..." *See more letters from customers on Comments Page.
*Hi. My name is Joyce Grant. If you haven't noticed yet, I love vintage toys! My husband & I have been in the collectibles business for 16 years & have operated TimeWarp Toys Website since 1996. We owned and operated the Phoenicia Antique Center for 8 years here in the Catskill Mtns. NY. When the internet took off - we decided to devote our time online selling toys. I wrote the collectibles book on 1964/65 NY Worlds Fair items. You can see info about it on my Worlds Fair page. I grew up in Queens and loved going to the Fair and really felt there should be a book about it. What fun seeing and photographing all the cool items from the Fair for the book!
See Local News Article About Joyce & TimeWarp Toys Here!
We travel all over finding treasures to put on the site. It is alot of fun and we sometimes take our grandkids with us - they are good spotters! Plus, we get to play with all the toys before I sell them!

I always wanted to have a cool 60's looking office. So my daughter in law and I went to work. Replaced the carpet, some paint and cool office supplies and details.. and here you go.
Check out my office photos below - click on to enlarge.
Its always Christmas morning here at TimeWarp. Everyone loves to see a toy that made them happy when they were kids. Toys bring out the best in us.. reminds of us simpler happy times.
Our customers satisfaction is our first concern! We always offer 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed - Full Refund - Return Policy. We take our business seriously and do not want disappointed customers!
Note: I don't refund shipping charges.
When we buy toys, we try to buy in excellent or complete condition. But, since some toys are so rare, we may have to settle for less than excellent choices - its just the way it is with old toys - many didn't survive in great condition. Be assured though, that we try hard to buy as excellent or complete as possible!
We have added a "Toy Upgrade Policy" to our site. If, in the future, you ever want to buy a better version of a toy you purchased from us, you can UPGRADE to the better version and just pay the difference. What a Great option. I think we are the first collectibles or retail store to offer this option. Check it out TimeWarp's Toy Upgrade Policy
Also, We Never, EVER sell reproductions! Everything is an original vintage toy or collectible item. Not many of these items were reproduced in the first place.. but now and then you see items that were made in the 80s or even today.. that look like toys we had as kids.. On this site you will find only original items from our childhood.
After we purchase toys we clean them and disinfect if possible! I don't want to send you dirty toys! Lysol, Windex, Mr. Clean Eraser does miracles on old toys. Our Grandchildren help us with setting up and photographing the inventory and you will see their photos here and there. They have been taught to respect old toys and are very careful little helpers!
We try to grade toys honestly & your happiness means a lot to us. Read what other customers have said on the "Feedback/Comments" page.
I try to take a few photos of each item. If the photo link is wrong or not working - it just means I messed up.. NOT that the item is out of stock. Again, just email me & I will fix it. Or if you need more photos, let me know. I am happy to oblige.
Another thing I thought I should mention.. We are a SPAM FREE Site.. When you email me, I will of course email you back, to answer any questions. But you won't be added on any annoying mailing lists. I hate when sites do that! So we definitely don't.
We will be coming up on our 18 year anniversary on the net. It has been great! Hopefully, we have many more years ahead of us.
We have sold toys to Museums as well as TV Shows and Movie Production Depts. for props. Such as: Drew Carey Show - (Jarts), Oprah - (Doll), The Today Show (Pet Rock), The new King Kong Movie - (Camera Case), and The Rachel Ray Show (pair of Clackers). Its always fun seeing our toys on TV!
We love toys & love working on our site. Last year, we added the Photo Memories page and the Top Toys Page - which really is a nice resource tool for all you toy collectors. If you have a photo to add - please send it!
One toy I would really love to see again is The Corner Store. I loved playing with that! It was a kid size grocery store. Heavy cardboard you would put together (or your parents would).. There were shelves for your groceries I guess the actual height was maybe 5 feet high? and there was a counter and a fake cash register. We played for hours with that. If anyone has a photo to share please send it! I haven't been lucky enough (yet) to come across one. Update 1/29/10 >> A visitor to the site sent me some photos of The Corner Store!
This one wasn't for sale.. but I am so grateful to see the photos! If anyone has one to sell, let me know! thanks!
Why I don't send emails when items are in stock
How to Use a Multi Voltage Adapter instead of Batteries
I learned a long time ago to always test old toys before I bought them. Unfortunately, most people don't have batteries available to let you try out in a toy. I would try to remember to bring batteries when we went on buying trips - but would have the wrong amount or voltage. Also, if the toy didn't work - how would you know if it wasn't just weak batteries?
A friend gave us a neat idea. We went to Radio Shack and purchased a "Multi Voltage Power Adapter - up to 1000mA current." These are the adapters you would use in normal items that took batteries and could also be plugged in. Well, I don't use the plugs they come with, I cut those off and attach two alligator clips (red for positive side, black for negative). This is a multi voltage unit so it can be used for a multitude of toy types. If you need just a 9volt battery equivalent, 2 "C" or AA, or even 4 "D" cells.. I am covered Up to 12 volts total! I just check to see how many and what voltage the toy takes (ex: 4 D batteries @ 1.5 volts each = 6 volts), I set the switch to 6, and attach the alligator clips to the respective contacts on the toy and you are good to go. They come in different voltage combos, I use the 3-12 Volt model.. It covers everything I have ever needed it for.
This saves alot of time - wondering if your batteries are bad or if the motor on the toy is bad. Plus the adapter can be used instead of batteries.. which is a lot easier and cheaper in the long run. Of course this is plugged into an outlet .. so you can't use it on really mobile toys.. but it can replace batteries in many cases. Also, if you have a bad battery box on the toy, it can be attached directly to the motor to work. A very handy gadget!
