Like a fine wine, some things just get better with age. And with toys, they grow in value as the time goes by. Unfortunately, the boxes usually get torn open and the toy eventually breaks as kids play with them. But for those lucky few who kept their toys (or their kids’ toys) in good condition, you may just be looking at receiving a small fortune for that relatively cheap toy you bought all those years ago.

1. Vintage 1959 Barbie

There might be many Barbies floating around these days, but there is only one original. And she reigns supreme. If you have one of these Barbies sitting around then you just became rich. A first edition in good condition can bring in around $23,000. The original Barbie sports a nifty, retro hairdo, a zebra-striped bathing suit, high heels and her classic hour-glass figure. Only two other Barbies hold a candle to the original (as far as price goes), and they are the De Beers 40th Anniversary Barbie (sold for $85,000) and the Stefani Canturi Barbie, which sold for a whopping $302,500.


2. Vintage Tamagotchi

Anyone who was a true ’90s kid definitely had a few digital pets, known as a Tamagotchis. These adorable pixelated creatures provided hours of entertainment, or maybe you just used them was a watch. Either way, If you still have an original Tamagotchi in its box then you might be looking at a cool $3,000, should you be looking to sell. Recently the pets have made a comeback. Even Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry showed up to the Met Gala in 2016 sporting the gadgets.


3. Vintage Game Boy

People will pay big bucks for vintage toys and this is one almost everyone had at some point during the ’90s. It’s the Nintendo Game Boy. An original Game Boy can bring in anywhere from $750 to $1,500 on sites like eBay. If that isn’t enough money for you, then check to see if you happen to have the gold-plated, diamond-encrusted special edition Game Boy. If so, you’re looking at a nice sum of $25,000. But let’s be honest, all those diamonds would be a bit distracting during a rigorous game of Tetris.
