Some things simply improve with time, much like an excellent wine. Additionally, the value of toys increases with time. Unfortunately, as youngsters play with the toys, the boxes frequently get ripped apart and the toys finally break.

1. Vintage 1959 Barbie
There may be a lot of Barbies out there now, but there has only ever been one original. She is the absolute ruler. You just become wealthy if you had one of these Barbies lying around. In good condition, a first edition may sell for for $23,000.
The original Barbie flaunts a stylish, vintage hairstyle, a swimming suit with zebra stripes, high heels, and her well-known hourglass physique. The De Beers 40th Anniversary Barbie (sold for $85,000) and the Stefani Canturi Barbie (sold for a staggering $302,500) are the only two Barbies that can compete with the original in terms of price.
2. One Expensive Egg
Anyone who truly lived through the 1990s had a few Tamagotchis, or digital pets. These endearing pixelated animals entertained you for hours, or perhaps you simply used them as a watch. In any case, they reportedly make a terrific addition for any ensemble.
If you still have the original Tamagotchi in the box, you may potentially get a cool $3,000 if you decide to sell it. The animals have recently returned. Even Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom wore the devices to the 2016 Met Gala.
