About Chelsea Downs

Chelsea Downs is an innovator and entrepreneur. As a biracial individual, her lack of representation in various aspects of her life spurred her to create something uniquely inclusive - the New York Toy Collective. Established in 2012 with her savings, Chelsea's vision was to design a representative adult toy that echoed the nuances of individuality and diversity.

Striving to change industry norms, she manufactured these products by hand in her apartment, offering more color choices and skin tone matches than any other existing brand. Her unique approach to production and commitment to customer feedback allowed Chelsea to spot an unexplored market gap: Gender Affirmation.

Over the years, Chelsea's leadership and innovation have seen the New York Toy Collective win multiple industry awards, such as the XBIZ Queer Pleasure Brand of the Year in 2020, 2021 and 2022.

About New York Toy Collective

New York Toy Collective, founded in 2012, is the brainchild of a self-inspired entrepreneur who recognized the absence of variety and representation in the adult toy industry.

After a fruitless search for an adult toy that resonated with changing attitudes, the founder invested personal savings in actualizing a dream: a diverse range of adult toys matching different skin tones.

With unyielding determination, the brand became an industry innovator, providing the unheard majority with handmade, bespoke products that celebrate inclusivity and body-positive sexual well-being. Repeated recipient of the XBIZ Queer Pleasure Brand of the Year award, New York Toy Collective redefines pleasure with every product.
