Elmo’s original name was “Baby Monster” because the makers probably saw the little guy without hair, which is actually terrifying.
Like My Little Pony, the Littlest Pet Shop is having a renaissance thanks to Hasbro and their television channel, The Hub.
The original Littlest Pet Shop debuted in 1992, though, and if you’ve got any complete sets from their early-to-mid-‘90s run, you can snag roughly $25: New Littlest Pet Shop toys run between $3.99 for individual dolls and $39.99 for the biggest sets.
Yesterday, Bustle conducted an investigation to find out roughly how much a vintage American Girl doll is worth today.
Inspired by a piece by Buzz Feed that found many of the dolls and play sets available for auction on e Bay for upwards of $500, Pamela took a look around herself to see what she could find — and the results were… Sure, there are a few mint-condition dolls with their full accessory sets and books going for insane prices, but odds are, most of us have much-loved dolls that will only fetch about $50.
Because what kid doesn’t want to see what their furry friend would look like if he was kidnapped and shaved for medical experimentation?
To be fair, the idea is to teach kids to work with such electronic devices as lights, motor, interrupters, voice box and batteries to create electrical circuits.
Interestingly, original Tamagotchis these days can run the gamut from super cheap to super expensive.
This brand-new-in-box one from 1997, for example, has an asking price of 0: For the curious, current Tamagotchis retail for about , although they’re currently on sale at Toys R Us for .99. The newest Furby costs about , although like Tamagotchis, they’re currently on sale at Toys R Us for .99. My brother had a Teddy Ruxpin, and I always wanted to play with it so badly…
This whole kerfuffle got me thinking: What might some of our other favorite toys from the ‘80s and ‘90s be worth these days?
I combed e Bay for information about nine must-have toys from our childhoods to see what was up.
After all that experimentation, it only makes sense that the fourth time would be this fur-less abomination.
