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) Lite Brite

When I was about 6 years old, I was a crafty kid to say the least. I would buzz right through bead kits, create destruction with Crayola crayons and mark my territory with a trail of marker ink. Don’t even get me started on what I did to poor Barbie’s clothes! (Tape and paper were my friends back then). So when I saw this same commercial for Lite Brite, I dropped EVERYTHING. And while I cannot remember exactly what I said, my thoughts surely sounded like this: ART THAT LIGHTS UP? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? MERRY-GO ROUND PONIES AND A BLUE MICKEY MOUSE? I CAN EVEN MAKE A BIRTHDAY SIGN! WAIT, MY BIRTHDAY’S COMING UP, IWANT THISIWANTTHISIWANTTHISIWANTTHISIWANTTHIS… …I must have – literally – dropped everything because my parents refused to get me Lite Brite because of all the tiny coloured pegs. I was crafty, but clearly not crafty enough to convince them otherwise.
