Childhood Treasures:
The 90s Video Games & Toys That Are Now Worth a Fortune

Did you leave the wrapper on?

You can’t put a price on busting open the plastic box on a He-Man figure or tearing off the tag from your new Beanie Baby….Except maybe when that price is $50,000.

Rare, well-preserved toys from the 1990s are worth a mint in 2021. Were you the type of kid who showed cardboard no mercy? Or did you spare a thought for future (broke) you?

Following TheToyZone’s look at the most valuable LEGO sets, the team decided to find the most expensive toys from the ‘90s – a golden age for childhood swag.

Here’s a look at the top ten most expensive '90s toys on the market today:

From Tamagotchis to Furbies, TheToyZone team discovered the most valuable toys for a variety of brands.

To put this project together, they looked up the toys and their prices on Mavin.

The team recorded the name of the toy, the price it sold for, and the year of release (as reported by the seller). Only toys sold individually (as opposed to in sets or multiples) were included.

For each toy line, up to 10 most expensive toys were included. The final list consists of 343 toys, all released in the 1990s.

Here's a preview of the top 6 most valuable Nintendo 64 games:

Key Findings:

● The most expensive 1990s toy sold is a Rainbow The Chameleon Beanie Baby from 1997 ($50,000).

● Nine of the top 10 most valuable ‘90s toys are Beanie Babies.

● The only top 10 toy not to be a Beanie Baby is a copy of Goldeneye 007 for Nintendo 64 ($14,999).

● The most expensive action figure is Scratch from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by Playmates ($5,850).

Top 20 Most Expensive '90s Toys (OVERALL)

When it comes to the most expensive 90s toys overall, Beanie Babies - a line of stuffed toys created by American businessman H. Ty Warner - are in the league of their own.

In fact, nine out of 10 most expensive 90s toys the team found (and they looked through hundreds) were all from the Beanie Babies series. The most expensive of all was Rainbow the Chameleon, which sold for an astounding $50,000 on eBay.

Most of the other expensive Beanie Babies were all bears, with the exception of Patti the Platypus and Peanut the Royal Blue Elephant, both sold for $15,000.
