Hoping to get everyone's opinion on something. When you hear or read references to "toy cards", what credit limits do you generally associate with the phrase?

My personal definition is not necessarily the standard but anything under 1k. This may differ greatly from the widely accepted opinion on toy limits.

For me, it's just a CL that's not usable. For instance, a $200 Cl for a store card that sells electronics. Kind of pointless.

Thanks for all the responses. It's interesting to see the diversity in ranges. It definitely looks like under $1,000 catches the full range. I guess it would all be relative to your current needs.
