Here at Eye Opener we like to stay young and hip with the kids, so we decided to go back in time and make this #ThrowbackThursday about some of those '90's toys everyone was raving about. We sent out Oliver Tull to visit the owner of DFW Vintage Toys, Jayden Frost, and get his picks for what every kid had back in the '90's.
These little naked critters started way back in 1959 but didn't gain popularity until the early to mid 90s. A good condition troll can go for as much as $10 to $15 these days so if you're willing to part ways with one, you can get some good cash for it.
Tickle Me Elmo
These bad boys were practically sold out the moment they were mentioned back in 1996. The were in high demand and people used to chase after trucks so they can get their hands on one before it hit the stores.
Power Rangers Toys
With the new movie going to hit theaters in 2017, Power Ranger toys are the new hot commodity. The morphers from the original 90s Power Rangers are going pretty quick if you can find stores that still sell them. And the Megazord action figure is also quite a hot ticket item. The original toy back in the 90s was probably about $70 but if you still own one, unopened, you will probably get around $300 for it.
Talkboy and Talkgirl
Probably the best movie promotional tie-in of all time. "Home Alone's" Talkboy and Talkgirl let you record yourself and play it back in slow motion. Let's be honest: if Kevin McCallister didn't use this in the movie, we would have had no idea what to do with this thing. A Talkboy in working condition starts at about $30. Now if only you could find a cassette tape.
Feed it, clean up after it and generally keep it fry dying. If you have a mint-condition Tamagotchi from back in the day, you can sell it for about $40. If you miss the days of keeping a pixelated creature alive, you can still download an app version.
The commercial was fun. This toy got very boring in very short order.
Believe it or not, they still make this. But she looks nothing like the original. You can pick one up for $15.
The death of the light bulb almost killed this millennial favorite. They still make and sell them for around $60.
Let's be honest: Today's Hatchimal is yesterday's Furby. Enough said.
The biggest scam of the '90's. Everyone who bought Beanie Babies thought they'd be worth SO much money in a decade's time. Lies. All lies.
