If you grew up in the 90’s which means you are probably in your mid to late 20’s then you might have played with some toys that are worth a little bit of money now. Or a lot of money depending on what toy it is. The condition of the toy is important as well, because any toy that is collectible has to be in top condition. The collector’s dream website is Ebay of course, and other sites like it have brought the collecting of old toys to a new level. You pretty much can find anything you want on that site. People who crave a bit of their childhood are repurchasing these toys for crazy high prices. Those toys that are in MIB or “mint-in-box” condition fetch an even higher price. So it might be worth the phone call to mom or dad to find out if any of your old toys are still being stored at your house. I’m sure your parents would be happy to clear out your old junk, and who knows if it’s on this list then it might be worth a small fortune today! Here is a list of the top 8 toys or games from the 90’s that can fetch you a pretty penny.
GAME BOY ORIGINAL
Original Price : $90
Worth Today: $1500
When Nintendo came out with their first handheld game system in 1989 it quickly became the hottest selling toy on the market. At $90 it was still pretty expensive for most parents to consider buying for their kid, but many parents did for Christmas or a special birthday present. Today that console, brand new in the box went for a whopping $1500 on Ebay on March 9, 2015. Some of the games you could play on the original version are “Super Mario Brothers”, “Tetris”, and “The Legend of Zelda.” Later version of the Game Boy came out like the Gameboy Color, and the modern version is the Nintendo DS which even has a 3D version! Quite an upgrade from the original game pack. The average price of the newest systems are $200-300, and it’s the most popular handheld game system on the market today. Nintendo obviously knows what kids want.
