These Old Toys Can Now Be Worth Thousands - Is It Time To Check Your Loft?

How great was it to be a kid and have a bedroom full of toys to play with?

You didn't have to worry about work and you didn't even know what a mortgage was, but you did have a brand new Furby and couldn't be pulled away from your Super Nintendo.

But what you might not realise is that your old toys could now be worth thousands, so perhaps it's time to rummage in the loft or garage and hope your parents didn't throw them away as soon as you moved out.

To help you in your search, here's a rundown of some old favourites that are worth a pretty penny:

Furby

Everyone wanted a Furby, but there are some which are worth quite a bit.

If you have an original boxed one from 1998, you could be able to sell them on for as much as £700 - though most are likely to fetch around £300, depending on the condition.

Mario Kart 64

Mario Kart 64 Cartridge

How many hours did you spend with your friends playing this game before falling out with them for hitting you with a red shell?

But what you might not know is that a Mario Kart 64 cartridge and box in mint condition is worth up to £700!

Even one boxed in a good condition can fetch as much as £100.

WWF figures

Everyone in the 90s loved wrestling — whether it be WWF, WCW or ECW.

And if you had the foresight, you would have collected all the wrestling figures you could find.

One of the rarest figures which has gained legendary status is the Hasbro Series 7 Kamala with a moon on his belly.

Doesn't sound so impressive, does it? But only a speculated 24 of them were actually made, with reports of them selling on for as much as £10,000!

Others that are worth a lot are:

Ultimate Warrior Wrestling Superstars '89 Black Card. (£800-£2,000)

Hart Foundation Wrestling Superstars Tag Team Box (£1,200-£2,000)

Macho Man Randy Savage Wrestling Superstars 89 Black Card (£4,000-plus)

Jurassic Park figures

Jurassic Park toy 1993 T-Rex

How great was the original Jurassic Park?

But as brilliant as the film was, it was just as great to use these toys to act it out yourself.

And if you had the Tyrannosaurus still in its box, you could see it on for £250, while the complete compound in original box is worth about £150.

Tamagotchi

Keeping those few pixels alive was probably one of the most addicting things you could do in the late 90s.

They are now worth quite a bit too.

If you have a sealed Bandai coloured one, then you could sell it for around £100, while one of the rare boxed Magical Witches Tamagotchi can go for three times that amount.

Fisher Price Castle series

My main present for Christmas 1996 was the Fisher Price siege tower castle and a Castle Friend Catapult - it was glorious.

But, if I hadn't opened the box and kept them in good condition, I would be able to sell them both for around £200-£300.

Supersoakers

Before NERF guns were all the rage, Supersoaker's were the way kids battled with each other...without throwing too many punches.

Incredibly, even a used Super soaker - especially a large one - can sell for up to £200.
