I could be up like £30,000 if I wasn’t stupid enough to take the tags off my toys or, heaven forfend, play with them.
My parents did me wrong by letting my enjoy my youth and I have to say, I’m absolutely going to hold it against them.
What I’m trying to get at is that there are some toys – mostly from the 90s – that haven’t only retained their worth, but have grown exponentially in value.
You may have had some, you may still have some, and you may even still have some, untouched and still in their packaging for some reason.
There’s only one way to find out… check. Check this list.
