    Any one know if in the US there is insurance available for your toy collection. Have a massive toy collection myself to insure if possible. Any response would be appreciated. :)

    I haven't inquired with them about my toys specifically but I know Chubb offers personal property insurance for valuables like jewelry.

    Any renters or home owners policy will cover your toys. However, if you have neither of those, this article gives some good ideas.

    Take pics/video of your collection, and if you can save/scan receipts of the rare and pricey stuff so you could justify it if you needed to claim.

    This. Your Renter's/Home Owner's Insurance will cover the contents inside your place, likely up to a certain dollar amount. Document your collection and include that in your policy.

    Awesome feedback

    Thanks for the info guys, I feel wiser already, by the sounds of it, it looks like home insurance companies would not insure it for the same value as say actual collectible insurance agencies.
