Who can put a price on your childhood? Your memories of those good old days are priceless! Or, if not priceless, at least worth a good deal of money, as anyone instilled with a keen sense for business will be able to tell you. We already told you all about the Polly Pocket toys and how they were making an astonishing comeback to popularity, fetching exorbitant prices of up to $10,000 for vintage sets, and today we’re talking about other toys that are so… beloved, I guess… that people would give an arm and a leg to own them. That’s what you get when you play on people’s nostalgia to pump up prices.
You know those little toys that came for free when you bought a McDonald’s Happy Meal? Well, let me put it this way: they aren’t free anymore. In fact, people are going crazy bidding on them over on eBay. And the older the toys, the rarer they are, which means higher prices. The ones from the ’80s and ’90s are the most valuable. If you still keep any of these toys, it might be a good idea to sell, sell, sell! Here are 12 examples and the prices they might fetch, courtesy of Ranker. Enjoy this trip down memory lane!
