Ah, the joys of being a kid. Everyone fondly remembers what it was like to play with a vintage toy. Regardless of your age, when you see something that sparks your memory, it instantly makes you feel nostalgic. Let’s be honest here shall we? A lot of the new toys that are sold now are probably newer, shinier, or even better than the old ones we used to play with. But that’s the point, because old toys are not sold on the market anymore, we start to wonder if we could ever get our hands on them again.
Old toys are quickly depleting, and there value is going up, which is why these toys have become collectibles. For that reason, some people keep these toys as a fun-filled investment, while others just want a simple throwback toy for the sake of having something vintage in this day and age. Nothing beats the accomplishment of rummaging through old yard sales, or even the internet, for your favorite vintage toy. We managed to make up a collection of toys from back in the day that will spark a memory or two. Are you excited to find out what they are? Read on and you’ll find out.
Garbage Pail Kids Cards
Back in the ‘80s, Garbage Pail cards may not have been popular amongst parents, but we all loved them as kids. Although these cards are not available on the market anymore, they are worth more than you might think today if you try to look for it online or at vintage stores. Some of these cards can sell for hundreds or even thousands of dollars – depending on the kind of card and the condition, of course.
One card from this stack was recently sold for $300 and an entire 1985 Garbage Pail Kids Series of cards went for $4,000 on websites like ebay and Amazon. Insane!
