Growing up, there was always a favorite toy.  For some it may have been a favorite doll, stuffed animal, or in my case the Evel Knievel stunt motorcycle.  But what happened to those toys?  Have you managed to hold on to them all this time?  Perhaps in a box that hasn't been opened in years?  Stuffed in the basement or a closet only to be remembered when you are looking for something else of importance.

Yes, They Are Worth Some Cash, But What About The Memories?

In some circles, classic toys can bring big money.  A classic Barbie doll can run into the 10's of thousands of dollars, Matchbox cars are through the roof as are many of the models of toys that may have been short-lived.  Think clackers or lawn darts!  However, would you be willing to sell those precious memories?  Can you really put a price tag on those?  Even if it is something that you haven't had out of that box in years?
