Hot Wheels was another favorite collectible. There are many versions of these cars made today, but none of them compare to the original ones made back in the ‘60s. In fact, since 1968, over 4,000,000,000 Hot Wheel toys have been made, but not all of them are considered valuable.
Some of the toys were only made as a prototype, like the 1969 “Volkswagen Beach Bomb.” This version never made it to production, making it one of a kind and with a value of $125,000. So, if you are a hardcore collector of these toys, you might want to start saving up!
The Original Monopoly
Okay, we all know that there are many versions of this popular board game now. You can now be the proud owner of Game of Thrones Monopoly or Monopoly for Millennials (as if it isn’t sad enough that we can’t buy real estate, now we have board games making fun of us for it). There are also versions that cater to those who prefer more firmly entrenched pop culture icons, like Star Wars, Star Trek, or even Pokemon. But, of course, nothing beats the original.
And absolutely nothing beats the original of all originals. The hand-drawn version of this game, which was made by Charles Darrow in 1933, was sold for an astounding $146,500 in 2011. So, if you were one of those kids that loved the vintage versions from the 1930s or other limited edition versions, you can be raking in the cash… a severe amount of money!
In the early ‘90s, this bulky version of the Game Boy was so popular that kids had to beg their parents to get one for them. Of course, many versions came after the original, there was the Game Boy Color and then the Game Boy Advance. But with all these amazing graphics of today’s game consoles, who needs an old one anyway, right? Wrong. You’ll never know what it feels like to have been a real gamer back then without experiencing the graphics of the vintage model.
In fact, if you are one of those lucky people that own one, you should probably do your research on how much the value on it is. These babies can sell for hundreds or maybe even thousands depending on the condition it’s in. If you have a special edition, like the Game Boy Light, it can go for over $1,500.
First Edition Pound Puppies Plush
Do you guys remember Pound Puppies? They were another popular favorite back in the day. This toy was sold by Tonka in the 1980s, which later inspired a TV special, two animated TV shows, and a feature film. They usually came in a variety of plush stuffed dog dolls with cute floppy ears and droopy eyes.
When they were first made and finally released, kids started going crazy for them. If you look at the price of these toys today, a first edition version of this toy is so rare that you can sell if for $5,000 or maybe even more if you’re lucky.
Cabbage Patch Dolls
This toy was an absolute favorite! As a kid, especially little girls, we just loved carrying these things everywhere and treating them like they were our babies! Admit it, you did the same thing, right? These dolls are almost extinct! If you have one lying around in your house somewhere and you decide to sell it, you can actually score a pretty hefty profit.
As of right now, the most expensive Cabbage Patch dolls are the possession of Pat and Joe Prosey. They are so addicted to these dolls that they have more than 5,000 dolls in their custom-built Maryland museum, and they are selling everything for $360,000. Wow!
