The band was formed in 2010 in Brighton by schoolfriends and former Joe Lean & The Jing Jang Jong

The Toys were discovered at a talent show by manager Vince Marc, who introduced them to songwriters Sandy Linzer and Denny Randell. Linzer and Randell wrote most of the songs recorded by them, including their U.S. #2 hit single "A Lover's Concerto", and also produced the group's 1965-66 recordings on Bob Crewe's DynoVoice record label.

Global sales of this disc exceeded two million copies, with a gold record awarded by the R.I.A.A. in 1965.Their first U.S. tour was with Gene Pitney.
In 1967 the group changed labels and producers, but charted only one more minor single (a cover of Brian Hyland's "Sealed with a Kiss") before breaking up.
The Toys appeared on most of the major TV rock programs, including Shindig!, Hullabaloo, and American Bandstand. They also had a cameo role in the 1967 beach movie It's a Bikini World.
