Feed All Signals to Single Preamp?

I have 2 stereo synths and a single stereo preamp. I only record the synths one at a time. Is there a way that I can plug them into a box (that's not a patchbay) that will feed both of their signals into the preamp? Does something like this exist?

If it has a toggle switch so that I can choose which input to listen to, that would be a plus.

What you want (I think) is called an AB switch. Just search for a stereo version.

A small summing box would meet your requirements, but electronics guy nailed it already: a stereo A/B or A/B/Y switch. The "Y" generally means both on at once, vs. only A or only B.

Number of options:
