12 Ridiculously Expensive Toys You Won't Believe Exist

From wagons to whips, this escalates quickly.

1. This $69 play vacuum.

That better have real suction power if it's nearly $70. (It doesn't though. Just a "vacuum sound.") If your kid won't actually be cleaning with it then they can just get a $23 Dirt Devil toy.

3. This $250 teepee.

This is problematic for a number of reasons, tbh. You could just as easily make a more... culturally appropriate... space with some blankets and chairs or something – or a get a $30 play tent.

4. This $259 washer and dryer set.

Unless your child will be doing their own laundry, why spend this much on a play thing? It doesn't even come with the iron or ironing board. You have to spend more for that.

11. This $8,845 dollhouse playset.

But it's not just any playset. It's a playhouse with a swing set, slide, and rock wall because kids need recreation, not just a place to play house, obviously – but not for almost $9K. You can get a similar one for almost 90% less.

12. And this $50,000 Mediterranean Villa Playhouse.

Not to mention this thing can be customized to include cable, water, electricity, A/C and marble, or Mexican tile. You're basically moving your kids to a new house in the backyard. That's a little extreme, don't you think? All they did was love you. Put them up in this $130 cottage for playtime and let them stay with you in the house.
