Relive your childhood with eBay's first-ever holiday Toy Book

'Tis the season for gift giving and eBay is celebrating with its first-ever Toy Book.

Jam-packed with new and collectible toys, the book features a wide variety playthings that'll please any tot, or even adults who have a soft spot for nostalgia and retro items.

“New and nostalgic toys bring the magic of the holidays; and for many shoppers finding the perfect gift on their loved ones’ wish list is their top priority," said Michael Mosser, GM of Lifestyle & Toys for eBay. 

The catalog is really a blast from the past with toys from numerous decades. Want to relive those middle school days? Snag a Magic: The Gathering trading card set for $29.99, an original Care Bear or some Pokémon cards. 

Here's some new and vintage items from the 22-page Toy Book that collectors may go wild for: 

GI Joe Cobra Commander from 1983 ($200-$400)

Complete set of Lord of the Rings action figures from 1979 ($20,000)

Vintage Boba Fett action figure from Star Wars ($10,999.99)

Barbie Titian Doll from the 1960s ($200)

Life-size LEGO Batman ($25,000)

Superman Wonder Woman Motorcycle from the 1980s ($2,750)

Not ready to shell out hundreds or thousands of dollars for a collectible? Don't worry. The book also has a wide selection of affordable toys, both old and current, for the casual toy lover, from My Little Pony to Funko Pop figures to Hot Wheels.

“At eBay, we stand apart from other retailers with a toys selection that only the online marketplace can deliver — the latest, trending toys, the sold out and impossible-to-find, as well as collectible and nostalgic toys," Mosser said.

To get your hands on a physical version of the guide, look for People magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” issue — an abbreviated version of the Toy Book is included.

The Toy Book will also be distributed November 16-20 at eBay’s Toytopia pop-up at Chelsea Market in New York City.
