She-Ra was He-Man’s twin sister, and she was a bad-ass. Hardcore collectors are still looking for dolls like this one in mint condition and are willing to pay quite a bit 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. Better get online and find some hardcore buyers with a good savings account!
Happy Meal Toys
If you were a kid during the heyday of Happy Meal toys from McDonald's or had a kid during that time, you may be sitting on a treasure trove. With enough of them, you could be looking at tens of thousands of dollars just from a few pieces of plastic.
It would be best to take your bag of toys to an appraiser, which will help you find the really rare items, but you can also take a look at the listings that are currently on eBay. A set of Disney Happy Meal Toys went for around $10,000 in April of 2019.

TMNT 1980s Actions Figures
We dare you to look at the picture and not hum the song. We loved these green heroes so much that they had us glued to the TV for way longer than our parents were comfortable with.
These four awesome turtles were popular collectors' items too, with their faces splayed over any kind of merchandise you could think of. If you are one of those lucky people who still have an action figure or a lunch box somewhere, you could sell those online and earn $600 apiece. If you have a rare one, you can earn up to $5,000!
