Who would have thought this creepy little monster would be worth $10,000 USD ($13,000 AUD) now? And, to think, I chucked this thing in the bin years ago! It’s probably in some landfill now, moving its weirdo ears and repeating “My owner is such a sucker” over and over again.

This classic 90s toy is also worth $10,000 now. Pretty sure my kids wouldn’t even know what this thing is, but hey.

What’s so special about Felicity? I have no idea but she sold for $7,820 USD ($10,300 AUD) so there must be something! American Girl Dolls continue to line the shelves today, but Felicity was discontinued.

Sorry, who? Scratch? Who dat?

I was a massive TMNT fan and can’t for the life of me remember this character. But Dr Google informs me he was a mutant cat. Not many Scratch action figures were made, hence the big price tag of $5,850 USD or $7,800 AUD attached to him.

The most valuable Barbie doll on the list is the 1997 Holidays Barbie. She has brown hair and dons a massive red and white dress, valued at $2,500 USD ($3,300 AUD). Did you have her?

Where is this info coming from?

The mastermind behind this list is The Toy Zone, which looked up over 300 90s toys to come up with their final list. They also have a cool interactive database where you can select a 90s toy brand and see what the top sellers are. There are heaps to choose from too – Tamagotchie, Polly Pocket, Cabbage Patch Dolls.
