Important Announcement

It is with great regret that we need to announce the closing of Papas Toybox effective September 1, 2024. Ongoing personal health concerns have forced us to make this decision. All our inventory will eventually be sold at auction. We will keep this website updated with information on the auctions.

While we have decided to close Papas Toybox, we will still be fulfilling orders as inventory remains. If a current inventoried item is to be sent to auction, we will remove its quantity available. We will continue to fulfill online orders until we no longer have any inventory available.

Large Capacity Magazine Ban Information

Per the Giffords Law Center there are now 14 states and the District of Columbia that have enacted laws that ban the sale, manufacture, and other commerce or conduct with large capacity ammunition magazines: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington. (Four of these states (DE, RI, OR, and WA) all enacted these laws in 2022 alone), Illinois enacted their law the evening of January 10, 2023.  The majority of these jurisdictions also strongly regulate the sale and manufacture of assault weapons, which are commonly equipped with large-capacity magazines.

Papa's Toybox does its best to keep abreast of changes in the current laws and will abide by them. If your state allows you to purchase large capacity magazines, you must be aware of your state laws also as we research the law after you place your order and will process accordingly. If your state does not allow the importation and ownership of large capacity magazines, your order will be cancelled, and your payment refunded.

Introduction is working hard to continue the importation of our product for online sale. As most people know that have seen our tables at shows, we have thousands of products so this will be a forever ongoing process and will take time, but we are confident you will like the product options we will have. What items we list on the website will not be in any logical order. With thousands of individual items, some with only a quantity of 1, it is going to be open a bin/box and start entering. We have no set plan on which items we will list first, so if there are some specific items that you're searching for please email us Product Search. If we have it, we'll get it added, if not we'll add it to our search list.

Here are some highlights for our new site:

  • We are a verified Authorize.Net merchant.
    • Authorize.Net is committed to providing its merchant customers with the highest level of transaction processing security, safeguarding customer information and combating fraud. More merchants trust Authorize.Net than any other payment gateway to process their ecommerce Transactions securely. 
    • This is the same payment gateway that we have used for the past five (7) years to process and accept credit cards, cash cards, Apple Pay, and Google Pay at the many shows where we are a vendor.
  • The shipping address and the credit card billing address MUST be exactly the same.
    • This is done to prevent one of the most common types of credit card fraud. It protects you the customer and us the retailer.
  • We have limited our sales to U.S. customers only.
    • This is because many of our products fall under ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) and we do not have the required export licenses to ship overseas.
  • All orders ship free.
    • E-commerce shipping can be complicated. As we pack your order, we choose the smallest package that can be used to safely ship your product, thereby allowing us to pay the least amount for shipping. Every order with a purchase price exceeding $100 will automatically have shipping insurance added at no cost to the buyer. You won't receive a small item packed into a large box like Amazon.
  • At this time, is only required to charge sales tax on Minnesota resident sales.
    • However, our sales tax software keeps track of out of state orders and notifies us as we get close to reaching the thresholds other states have that will require us to begin charging sales tax there also.
