Being a kid during the 1990s was pretty darn fun, whether you were trying to keep your Tamagotchi alive or trading Beanie Babies with your friends. It was a carefree time, so it’s no surprise that there’s so much ’90s nostalgia going on.

People miss their ’90s toys so much, in fact, that they’re willing to pay a pretty penny to get their hands on some rare memorabilia.

If you’re looking to make some quick cash, you might want to check that box in the closet to see if you have anything of value. They might have been commonplace back then, but these eight ‘9os toys are worth a good deal of money today.

Of course, the rarest items are the most valuable. The same goes for items that are still in their original packaging. Plus, many collectors are looking for mistakes—typos, misprints, etc. So we can’t promise you’ll get rich, but we can promise you’ll feel a little nostalgic as you scroll through this list.

1. Polly Pocket

Polly Pocket was discontinued in 2015, but back in the ’90s, she was all the rage. A number of Polly Pocket sets on eBay are selling for up to $900. Unsealed, box sets are worth the most, but even people with big lots of the product are selling packages for around $400-$500.

Vintage Polly Pocket sets have sold for as much as $850 online, and people are also selling huge numbers of Polly Pocket item together for several hundred dollars.


2. Tamagotchi

If you’ve got your hands on an original English Tamagotchi, you’re in luck. For a bundle of three, you can fetch about $2,250. Even if you’re not lucky enough to own an original, there are plenty of other Tamagotchi versions that are selling for hundreds of dollars. 


3. My Pretty Ballerina

Aspiring young dancers all around were obsessed with these twirling dolls, and if you still happen to have yours, dig it out from storage. A My Pretty Ballerina box can fetch over $100 on Ebay.
