For the jumping, try turning your back on him the second he starts jumping up and when he is calm when all four feet on the ground, turn around and praise him. This way he will learn he will be ignored when he jumps up but praised or paid attention to when all four feet are on the ground.

As for the toys, the drop it is a good command, you just need to expand it a little. Have him drop and give him the command wait or leave it so you can be sure that when you pick up the toy he won't be grabbing for your hand. Once they realize that you won't pick up the toy or throw it until they wait and leave it alone so you can grab it or throw it, they will start doing it every time and so much faster as they are so anxious for the game to continue.
