    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.


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