You may find you have a goldmine right under your nose — one popular toy now sells for $2,500. If you didn’t save your toys, don’t feel bad. Most of us didn’t. You can still take a look at these nostalgic gems and enjoy the walk down memory lane.
1. Easy Bake Oven
- Price on eBay: $50
Many a kid in the 1980s made it their life’s mission to get their hands on an Easy-Bake oven. The original toy used an incandescent light bulb as a heat source. The commercial made the little frosted cakes look downright easy and delicious to boot. A much-upgraded Easy-Bake version is sold today, called the Ultimate Oven Baking Star Edition, but if you want the good-old-fashioned version back from 1983, you can pick it up through eBay for $50.
