A THRIFTING expert has explained how valuable vintage kids' toys can be - and which ones to cash in on.
The money-savvy YouTuber recently lucked out in Goodwill, finding various toys from years ago that could now sell from hundreds.
In a YouTube short posted by (@ThriftingTreasure), he explained that Fisher-Price toys are a great vintage find.
"Factory sealed or open box, some of them can go for crazy money," the expert explained.
He gave an example using a sandcastle toy he purchased for $6, which turned out to have great resale value.
"This was a brand new open box from 1997, and it sold for $250, and this sandcastle was rare."
He added that as long as it is in good condition, it is worth picking up, listing prices of the toy selling for as much as $474.
"Vintage Fisher-Price factory sealed can go for crazy money even if it's used," he said.
"Just look them up, you never know what you're going to find."
Recently, a TikToker made over $40,000 on a collection of stuffed animals he purchased for less than a dollar.
Scott (@scott_flips_2_freedom) explained in his video that he bought several Beanie Babies that came with the thrift store mystery bags.
"This is the most expensive thing I have ever found at Goodwill and I've got a lot of them," he said holding up a white Beanie Baby.
"I usually pass on Beanie Babies every day," he said: "These were all in good condition."
He told his followers that when looking for Beanie Babies, he specifically searched for the stuffed animals that were a part of the Original 9 released by the company.
These "could be worth a little more money," he said.
When shopping he made sure the tags were still attached to the products, which added to their value.
"The tag is so important. So, if you see the tag here has a fancy tag protector which tells me that this person was probably a serious collector," he said.
Scott was able to get 136 Beany Babies for just $0.72 apiece.
"With Beany Babies one of these can pay for all of them and that's exactly what happened and more," he said.
