If you once had one of the valuable toys on this list—and you played with it very gently (or not at all)—selling it to the perfect, passionate collector today could mean big bucks. Toys from the ’70s, ’80s and even the ’90s, especially those linked to favorite television shows and movie characters, may be hot commodities among collectors on the second-hand market.

Here are 10 valuable toys you had as a kid that are worth tons of cash today:

People will pay big bucks for vintage toys, and the Game Boy is one of those valuable toys almost everyone had at some point during the ’90s and early 2000s.

An original Game Boy can bring in anywhere from $750 to $1,500 on sites like eBay. If that isn’t enough money for you, then check to see if you happen to have the gold-plated, diamond-encrusted special edition Game Boy. If so, you’re looking at a nice sum of $25,000.

Frankly speaking, the diamond would be distracting while playing games like Tetris.
