Here’s another doll that we haven’t seen in ages. Aside from Barbie, Jem and the Hologram Dolls were pretty popular in the ‘80s. Girls loved this rock diva so much that they would go crazy just to have one in their hands. Back then, the prices of these dolls reached a far-fetched price that was truly outrageous.
And what of the value of these things today? If you are lucky enough to have held on to one of these, you can sell it for upwards of $700. Of course, if it includes all of the accessories and other things that are normally inside an untouched box, you can sell it for it even more. It’s incredible!
Vintage Strawberry Shortcake dolls
We loved Strawberry Shortcake and all her adorable friends. She was famous for creating that cute little song that became so viral before viral was even a thing, and up until now, people are still making it their ringtones. As a kid in the ‘80s or ‘90s, this doll was a collectible, and we loved it so much.
Now, if you were to look for one on the market today, you might be disappointed. But, if you are lucky enough to find someone selling one or just happen to find yours, you can earn up to $400 to $600 for it, depending on which character you have and if they are still housed inside the box.
She-Ra, Princess of Power and Her Horse Swift Wind
Okay, and now we go to another favorite, She-Ra. She was He-Man’s twin sister, and she was a badass. Together they ruled the children's fantasy world, and for a while, they were the number one seller of toys. Hardcore collectors are still looking for a doll like this that’s in mint condition and are willing to spend for it.
The original action figure that is still packaged along with her horse can sell for up to $4,000. If there are no accessories included, it can still earn you a decent $150-$600. So, if you are one of those hardcore buyers, then you better start saving up!
Coloring books were a thing when we were younger and are still a childhood staple today. Back then, we would collect all of those coloring books that we thought would give us the most entertainment. Given the newfound popularity of adult coloring books, it’s no surprise that old-school coliforms, with their colorful backgrounds and stickers, are also in demand.
The colorform that you see in the photo is from a "Marvel Super Heroes" colorform playset from 1983. Toy Helper carries a wide range around the $250 mark, which includes ‘80s themes that range from Masters of the Universe characters and Gremlins to Michael Jackson and more. Nice!
Oh, we remember this bear! This Teddy Ruxpin bear was very popular back in the day. It was a very creative way for kids to become more interested in books. Back then, if you had one of these, the loveable animatronic bear “read” kids' stories, thanks to the audio cassette player that was built into it, which made it totally entertaining.
The bear also sported appropriate expressions on his face during the story, reacting to the plot and the child, making it even more interesting for kids. These days, if you sell one of these guys online or in any vintage store and it is still in top-notch condition, you can earn yourself a decent $500. Yay!
