Expensive Toys

There are people who have held on to some of the toys they had as kids. I'm one of them. Some of those toys could be worth a lot of money these days. But would you part with those toys if someone offered you enough money?

Matchbox Series

 
 

I collected Matchbox Series cars when I was a kid and I still have the collection – in a drawer somewhere. I don’t know why I kept them, but I just couldn’t throw them away or give them away. I just couldn’t, so I still have ‘em. I was looking over a listing of some of the most expensive toys in the world and a Matchbox Series car from the mid 60's is on the list. One of them, if it's in good condition in the original box, could be worth about $9,000. Specifically a green, 1966 Opel Diplomat. They’re rare and worth a lot of money. So if you have a collection still around you might want to check thru it. I don’t have that particular one.

Diamond Barbie

 
 

How about a Barbie doll? This one is kind of a special Barbie ... Diamond Barbie from DeBeers. It has a gown with 160 diamonds plus white gold jewelry. It runs about $85,000. Barbie debuted in 1959 and if you have one of the first ones to come out in mint condition – experts say it’s worth about $9,000.

PEZ Dispensers

 
 

PEZ dispensers. They’re out there. They’ve made a lot of them over the years. Some people have huge collections. Some of them worth a lot of money. One from the 1982 World’s Fair in Knoxville – it’s an astronaut PEZ dispenser – green body and white helmet. There’s only two of them known to exist, worth about $32,000. Who’d pay $32,000 for a plastic PEZ dispenser?

GameBoy

 
 

If your kid is into video games, why not a hand-held Gameboy made of 18K gold and a display screen surrounded by diamonds? It’s available through a Swiss company for a mere $25,000. Just hope the kid doesn’t lose it.
