Do You Have Any Of These Toys From The '90s? They Might Be Worth A Small Fortune!

Every single one of you was given a toy or two when you were a child. As soon as you were given one, though, you most likely ripped it out of the package to play with it immediately. Fortunately, there were some people out there who avoided the temptation and allowed the toy to sit in the box to remain immortal in the cardboard or plastic. Those people made wise decisions because some of those toys are now worth insane amounts of money.

Hot Wheels Treasure Hunt Series

Kids have been playing with these timeless toys since 1968, but they probably never imagined how much some of them would be worth. Every year, Mattel releases a Treasure Hunt Series, which have been limited to between 1,500 and 5000 copies. From 1995 to 2002, JCPenney sold these collectible sets. In fact, the Treasure Hunt Series sold by JCPenney in 1996 can actually bring in a few hundred dollars!

Super Mario Bros 3

Fans of Super Mario were ecstatic when Super Mario Bros. 3 was released on October 23, 1988. Considered one of the greatest games of all time, Super Mario Bros. 3 was a challenge for gamers because of its hard levels and sophisticated complexity. While used games aren't worth much of anything, mint copies of the game can bring in close to $800, as long as their still sealed in the box, of course!

The Polar Express

We all have certain books that we remember from our childhood, and The Polar Express is certainly one of those books. If you were lucky enough to grow up reading The Polar Express while you were waiting for Santa to drop through the chimney, then you might just have a small fortune sitting on your bookshelf. First edition copies of The Polar Express can be sold for $150-800, depending on the condition of the book, of course.

Well of the Souls Playset

Kids all over the world were given a whole new world to play in when Indiana Jones hit the big screen. Using their imagination, kids were able to put themselves into Indiana's shoes as they explored ancient caves and temples. Fortunately, when the Well of the Souls Playset came out after Raiders of the Lost Ark was released, kids were able to play Indiana Jones right at their kitchen table. Those who bought the playset for $11 when it first came out will be happy to know that if their copy is in mint condition, it could bring them roughly $1,500...as long as they find the right buyer, of course.

McDonald's Toys

Going to McDonald's as a child is a favorite pastime, especially when you got to bring a brand new toy home. Most people didn't realize when they were younger that some of those cheaply made toys would one day be worth a little bit of money. For example, an incomplete set of their mini Beanie Babies can sell for $100, but if you have a set of all 80 Furbys then you could be looking at a $900 come up!
