Your Childhood Toys Might be Worth Big Bucks…

According to another site in which I found this information, your childhood toys could be worth a fortune! My guess is that the people who desire to pay these crazy prices obviously didn’t have as good a childhood as you did. My parents had the best plan for raising us, they wouldn’t buy us anything but instead made friends with rich parents so we could play with their kid’s toys. It was a flawless plan which I intend to pass on to my kids…as soon as I acknowledge their existence…which may take a while. In the mean time enjoy the frustration you will no doubt get from seeing how valuable these toys are now. Thanks for selling those super-soakers at a garage sale for $2 mom! Great call! *These are listed prices on eBay, they don’t necessarily reflect the actual value of these toys. I mean, I sold myself on eBay for $32 and I’m worth $29.50 tops.   Super Soaker: $549 on eBay   Tamagotchi: $460 on eBay   Yong T-Rex Jurassic Park Toy: …

Toys I Wanted (But Never Got): Furby

Furby was one of those toys that came out at the right time. Just as our Tamagotchis (For me, my Nano Pet) died in a blaze of dead batteries and virtual starvation, we needed a new pet to care for. At first, Furby seemed perfect – a furry, Gizmo-like creature that loved to be pet, did not have to be fed AND can learn its name! What could go wrong? Technology, that’s what. Once teachers and parents found that Furby can also learn to say a lot more than just “Tickle Me” or “Noodle,” they were soon confiscated from classrooms and playgrounds. While my hopes of having one were dashed inside those office drawers, I didn’t cry for long. Why beg for a virtual ball of fur when a real pet* is all you need. *even though you need to feed it.
