You would be surprised by just how many vintage toy collectors there are out there, and how big the market is. From toys that are no longer in production but are considered staples (like Lite-Brites, which when sealed can go for as much as $300), to the classics like first edition Barbie dolls, these toys have a huge resale value!
The first edition of the Barbie doll came out in 1959 and was valued at about $8,000! There’s always a catch though, as they definitely need to be in prime condition and in the original box as well.
But if you want to keep an eye out for the rarest and most sought-after Barbie at the next garage sale, make sure you look for one that has a zebra-striped bathing suit and holes in the bottom part of its feet. That’s the money maker!
