What toys should you never throw away?

Most Valuable Toys

  1. Commemorative Beanie Baby Bears
  2. Most Beanie Babies do not age well. Their value has dropped out in recent years. Beating this trend are certain extremely rare bears that were created to commemorate special occasions. The greatest example is the Princess Diana commemorative bear, now valued at half a million dollars.

  3. Old-School Video Game Systems
  4. Nothing sells like nostalgia! Refurbished old Nintendo and Sega consoles currently sell for way more than their original price. Although you might not want to take the time to fix them up, someone will. Try to find a vintage store or pawn shop. You might be surprised at the prices you can get!

  5. Toys for 90s Kids Shows
  6. Many cartoons in the 90s made a lasting impact on millenials. Now, as those millenials are starting to earn real incomes, they want to recapture the joys of childhood. Toys worth hundreds include those made for shows like Jem, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, G.I. Joe, Barney, Transformers, Care Bears, He-Man, and others.

  7. Toys that Have Made a Comeback
  8. Some toys keep coming back. For example, My Little Pony, a classic Hasbro toy, has recently seen a surge in popularity due to the success of a 2010 animated series. Although new toys have been released, the old toys are still more highly valued, and often sell for hundreds. A similar trend is occurring with online sales of Transformers toys: the movies have made collecting the toys more common, but the pre-movie toys are still the most highly prized.

  9. Complete Sets of Toys
  10. Certain toys, like Stretch Armstrong action figures, came in sets where the toys were meant to complement each other. If you have a complete set of something, chances are that someone, somewhere, will pay good money for it.

  11. Matchbox Cars and Hot Wheels
  12. Matchbox Cars and Hot Wheels can be very valuable. Many of the rarest and most valuable ones don’t look exceptional; a plain-looking muscle car is currently selling for a half million dollars on eBay. You may want to throw out some of your old toy cars, but before you do, check to see if any of them could be your meal ticket!
