25 Toys Of The ’80s That Are Worth An Absolute Fortune Now

BRB, eBaying my childhood.

1. Teddy Ruxpin:

 

Who’d have thought that this annoying talking bear would be more expensive now than in the ’80s?!

2. Fisher-Price Yellow Roof Little People Family Play House:

 

Most of us probably have memories of playing with the Little People Tudor House. But, did you know there was also a yellow roof version? And today it’s also the pricer one.

3. Fisher-Price Little People Parking Garage:

 

Reliving the fun of racing your Little People (in their cars) down the ramp will only set you back $150.

4. Casey The Talking Robot:

 

This isn’t even a robot! It’s just a cassette player.

5. Michael Jackson: Superstar of the 80’s Doll:

 

I guess it’s not a bad price, if you want to preserve what MJ looked like before he got all the plastic surgery.

6. Talking ALF Doll:

 

And yes, he is still as creepy as ever.

7. Rainbow Brite Doll:

 

This preschool favorite now comes at a very grown up price.

8. Lite-Brite:

 

This perennial favorite has gotten a modern day LED make-over, making this classic version that much more desirable.

9. Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Happy Home Doll House:

 

On the plus side, the play set does come with all the furniture and dolls.

10. Sweet Secrets: Workout Time Play Set:

 

Wow, more expensive than a gym membership!

11. Fireball Island:

 

Pretty much the most epic board game ever!

12. The Real Ghostbusters: Fright Feature Action Figure:

 

Surprisingly, Peter Venkman is the most expensive figure from this toy series.

13. “Glitter and Gold” Jem

 

It’s OK, she’s worth it ‘cause she’s “truly, truly, truly outrageous.”

14. Transformers: Optimus Prime and Megatron Action Figures:

 

It’s not surprising the original toys would command this much. The toy line has remained popular ever since its launch.

15. Garbage Pail Kids: Adam Bomb

 

The most iconic card in the series’ high price was driven by the fact that it was used on all the packaging.

16. Talking Pee-wee Herman Doll:

 

Can you really put a price on hearing Pee-wee Herman’s voice?

17. Nintendo

 

Yup, an original Nintendo mint in the box can command more than a 13-inch MacBook Air.

18. Fisher-Price Cassette Player:

 

The only problem here would be finding cassettes to play in it.

19. Cabbage Patch Baby:

 

At its height in the ’80s, black market Cabbage Patch dolls sold into the thousands to parents eager to make their kids happy on Christmas morning. So, I guess this is kinda discount?

20. ThunderCats: Lion-O Action Figure:

 

No word if his eyes still light up too.

21. Barbie and the Rockers:

 

This Jem rip-off holds a special place in many ’80s girls’ (and boys’) hearts.

22. She-Ra and Swift Wind Action Figure Pack:

 

The high price is driven by the fact that in this rare packaging, both She-Ra and Swift Wing were packaged together.

23. G.I. Joe Motorized Battle Tank:

 

Somehow this vehicle is even more pricer than the legendary G.I. Joe USS Flagg Flag Aircraft Carrier play set.

24. He-Man and Battle Cat Action Figure Pack:

 

Just like the She-Ra and Swift Wind pack, the fact that both He-Man and Battle Cat were packaged together accounts for the high price of this toy set.

25.
 

Of course your $7000 He-Man would need an equally as expensive castle to live in, right?
