The Most Valuable Toys From The 90s Worth Up To $14,700 Revealed
ONCE just for kids, ’90s Game Boys and Star Wars action figures are sparking price wars on eBay.
Rare or unopened items sell for thousands – like a Princess Diana Beanie Baby that sold for over $14,000.
When it comes to collectibles, you can think of rare coins or baseball cards.
But for Americans born in the 80s and 90s, it was Harry Potter, Legos and Nintendo Game Boys that lined the shelves.
It was also the decade of the American Girl Doll.
An original Felicity sold for $175.
That’s not a bad price considering over 32 million dolls have reportedly been sold since 1986.
That’s why these sales are so interesting.
Each item was fairly common and sold in the millions.
Yet finding one in an unopened state can transform its value.
It may be useful to check your storage.
Thousands could be hiding out of sight.
Princess Diana Beanie Baby – $14,700
This Princess Diana baby beanie sold for a staggering $14,700.
According to the seller, it was a first edition from 1997.
You may remember this was the same year Princess Diana lost her life in a car accident.
The condition was listed as new and unopened.
Unopened Lego Market Street set – $3,500
This complete market set garnered eight bids in February 2022 before selling for $3,500.
It sold in the original packaging, according to the seller.
For Lego fans, the set number is 10190.
One commenter on eBay called it “the most wanted set”.
Nintendo Game Boy Color with Original Box Pokémon Pikachu Edition – $1,025
This item sold in a bidding war, attracting nearly 33 bids.
The seller described it as “working great” with the original box included.
Current and former gamers will remember that The Game Boys was black and white, so the color screen is a big bonus.
Of course, if you plan to use it, you will have to buy games separately.
1980 Star Wars IG-88 Action Figure – $737
This is the oldest toy on our list and dates back to the 80s.
The toy itself is supposed to represent the character IG-88 from “Empire Strikes Back”, but there have been several variations.
On this 1980 version, the seller describes that the arms are quite loose, with some minor soiling from years of storage.
These factors did not prevent the toy from selling for $737.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by JK Rowling First Edition – $510
The world record sale for a first edition of Harry Potter is $471,000.
The books have sold over 500 million copies worldwide and have been made into films that have grossed over $7 million at the box office.

This book sold in January 2022 after receiving 23 bids.
