I am going to be a second year industrial design student in the fall. I am looking to minor in something, but I want it to go towards something relevant. Since I want to ultimately end up in toy design, what would be the best minor to take?

are you in a school with toy design faculty? how soon will you be ready for an internship?
given those are covered...
After that, how about Developmental Pshychology? knowing how play and learning go hand in hand in the very young would be an excellent asset. Graphics/Packaging would be my next recommended skill set to learn.

I would say graphic design/illustration. You wind up doing a lot of illustration in terms of characters, etc.
