Did you watch Home Alone as a kid? We have got to admit those movies had some of the best gadgets, and having one available as a toy back then meant everything. Well, here’s a fun fact, believe it or not, after the release of Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, Talkboy became popular.
Sure, this thing was just a stylish version of a tape recorder, but if you’re holding on to one, you can take a look on the net to see who is willing to buy it from you. If you sell it, you can earn a quick $200.
1982 Skeletor Action Figure
If you were born in the ‘80s, it wouldn’t be hard to remember Skeletor. As a boy of the ‘80s, you probably had to beg your parents to buy you this action figure because it was one of the most popular toys back then. If you didn’t have one, you risked being left out at school.
We all know He-Man was another favorite as well, and together, they were the most popular action figures from the Masters of the Universe World. If you are one of those lucky ones that still has it, you can actually get a lot of money for it. A 1982, mint condition Skeletor action figure that is still inside its box could fetch up to $2,000 online.
Furby was just one of those toys you couldn’t understand at first, but surprisingly made up many of our childhood memories. Let’s be honest here, shall we? Who among you thought it was a mixture of a hamster and an owl at the same time? We are guessing most of us felt that. These Furby toys became super popular for most ‘90s kids, and almost everyone had one.
They were very cuddly and could sometimes move their eyes or talk. If you have an unopened original Furby doll, you can expect to earn around $900 dollars for it. Of course, that depends on what kind of Furby doll and if it’s totally untouched.
Here’s another favorite, the loveable Beanie Babies. If you were born in the ‘90s, this toy was a huge deal for a long period of time, starting from the ‘90s up to the late 2000s. Unfortunately, like everything else in this world, the fad died down.
But mind you, there are still hardcore vintage collectors out there that are willing to pay thousands of dollars for a rare edition Beanie Babies toy. Depending on the item, some of these toys will be worth hundreds or even thousands of dollars. If you have a 1997 first edition, you could earn a whopping $12,000. Awesome!
Lionel’s Pennsylvania “Trail Blazer” Train Set
Trains were another popular toy for kids back then, as they are today, and as they probably have been since the advent of rail travel. Having a train set in your house was the ultimate. You could set it up anywhere in your room and be as creative as you wanted with them, setting up the tracks in all sorts of physics-defying arrangements.
Modern versions of this toy exist aplenty, but if you happen to have one of these vintage collectibles lying around in your house somewhere, a 1934 Standard Gauge version of this train set will earn you $250,000. Yup, that’s a six-figure toy you’re looking at. Wow, that’s an insane amount of money, I guess you better look through your attic to make sure you didn’t miss out!
