Welcome to Tenacious Toys®!
We are a small team of passionate toy people. Tenacious Toys was started by Benny & Steph on a whim in 2005 with a few random toy purchases and an eBay shop. Since then, we've grown and expanded into a full-service website, blog and supporter of emerging artists around the world. We live and work in tropical New York, NY in the U. S. of A.
We love vinyl art toys as well as handcrafted resin sculptures, and we always try to offer a wide selection of both for your shopping pleasure. Additionally, you will find a rotating collection of one-of-a-kind custom toys in a variety of mediums available for purchase on our site. We do happily accept inquiries from unrepresented artists seeking to place their works on our site.
During the past decade of selling art toys, we've seen a lot of changes in this small industry: it has grown and changed from a purely artist-centric industry to one more focused on licensing. Along the way, we've watched numerous artists set out on their journeys, with some achieving widespread success, and others fading away. We've also seen MANY other toy shops and manufacturers start up and close down. This industry isn't easy... longevity takes a lot of effort and dedication, and a little bit of willingness to rework, evolve and adapt.
Our team includes a handful of people that really make the whole operation work:
- Benny is the daily operator, sending all the emails, running day-today operations and the Tenacious social media empire
- Steph is the co-owner, making the bigger decisions that keep us on track and in the black
- Our bloggers Thomas, Brandon, Mark, Tasha, Mario and several others keep the posts flowing over on the Tenacious.ninja blog
- We have a close circle of artists and creators who we work with frequently to produce and release unique collectibles. Check our nav menu for a list of them.
