These days, it’s hard to find a kid playing with anything other than their parent’s iPad. Back when we were children, though, toys were the name of the game. From dolls to action figures, board games to video games, the toy industry was booming, and parents were quick to get their kids the next big thing. Nowadays, the kids who played with Barbies and G.I. Joes are all grown up and have money of their own–which is where toy collectors come in.
Toys make us nostalgic for our childhoods, which is why collectors from all over the world will pay a pretty penny for the contents of the dusty old toy box in your attic. Most of us might have kept hold of these childhood treasures simply because we couldn’t bear to part with the memories. Little did we know then that we were actually investing in our futures.
If the price was right, would you part with your favorite Hasbro game? Read on to see if you’re lucky enough to have clung to one of these vintage treasures–they could make you rich, or at least get you a nice chunk of change.
