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.

๐Ÿ•น️๐ŸŽฎ The Argos Catalogue & Video Games in the 1970s, 80s & 90s | A Trip Down Memory Lane ๐Ÿ•น️๐ŸŽฎ #RetroGaming @Argos_Online

Growing up in the UK as a kid during the 1970s, 80s and 90s meant that the Argos catalogue was a British kid's go-to piece of literature should you want to plan your next birthday or Christmas presents.

My first port of call was always the Video Games section which I looked at on a daily basis leading up to Christmas and Birthdays. My sister and I would play the Argos catalogue game where you would have to choose one item to buy from EVERY page and then initial it. I'd often end up having to circle and initial a duvet set that I didn't want to be followed by a Corby trouser press.


When we got to the Video Games section though the choice would be impossible to make as I was presented with all the latest video games related accessories and consoles!


My love for the Argos catalogue has carried on to this day and I still pick up a copy to circle items while playing the catalogue game.


Then something special happened recently when I stumbled across the Argos Book Of Dreams website which Argos have pulled together to make every Argos catalogue available online in a digital format! argosbookofdreams.co.uk

๐Ÿ•น️ Video Game Hardware Timelines - Nintendo Timeline - 1889 to 2017 ๐Ÿ•น️ #Retrogaming #Nintendo

After doing a SEGA timeline and having a first stab at a Nintendo Timeline in the articles below I decided to take another look at the Nintendo Timeline and fit it into the style of the one I did for SEGA as it seems to visually display the timeline in a better way.

Nintendo started out in 1889 with cards and then moved into video games in 1977. The rise and rise of Nintendo from then onwards has been documented millions of times over the years with only a few bumps in the road such as the Virtual Boy in 1995 and some even point to the GameCube or the Wii U as being failures but I don't think so.

So here just for you is the NINTENDO HARDWARE TIMELINE 1889 to 2017...

☆ A Video Games Genre That Has Almost Died ☆

In an age where we are surrounded by phone apps and websites that promote real money gambling, I have recently been thinking about the more innocent times when digital gambling was only represented by casino type gambling games on video games systems like the SEGA Master System.
