Biography

The Toys was an American R&B girl group from Jamaica, New York which was formed in 1961 and disbanded in 1968.

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 Number 2 hit single “A Lover’s Concerto”, and also produced the group’s 1965-66 recordings on Bob Crewe’s DynoVoice Records record label. 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.

At the peak of their popularity The Toys appeared on all 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.
