Pray that your parents kept your old toy-box in storage because it’s time to cash in.
Those pocket money investments you made in primary school are starting to pay off with “vintage” toys raking in a fortune online.
It’s time to get those Pokemon cards out of storage and dust off your Polly Pocket collections because someone, somewhere is willing to paying a lot (and we mean a lot) of money for them.

We’ve found out exactly what our favourite childhood toys are worth today.
1. Sky Dancers
These flying contraptions were responsible for multiple eye injuries back in the day while also getting stuck in tree branches and on top of roofs. They were more trouble than they were worth back then but their financial worth has at least doubled today.
You’ll make: $50 AUD
2. Cabbage Patch Doll
Cabbage patch dolls were a staple in kids bedrooms across the world, even Bachie Blake‘s.
You’ll make: $89 AUD
As kids you didn’t by a packet of chips for the chips, oh god no. You bought chips for the Tazos. These holographic pieces of plastic were banned at my school because of the fights kids had over them.
You’ll make: $206 AUD
4. Puppy Surprise
Puppy Surprise now seems kind of creepy – inside the stuffed dog were a number of small stuffed puppies (surprise, you’re basically giving a dog a c-section!). But as kids it was at the top of birthday and Christmas wish lists.
