I usually do a best plush sales of the year blog but this year I didn’t really sell too much plush so I am including them in the toy and game category. These are my top 10 toy and game sales on Ebay for 2017 plus one honorable mention.
This little duck is an origami rubber ducky. He is an honorable mention. I thought he was so unique and I couldn’t find another one anywhere. I picked him up at the thrift store for $1. He sold for $20.
In the plush category, this watercolor Build A Bear Hello Kitty sold for $34.99. I don’t come across many Build A Bears that have value but I know that some of them do. This one was unusual looking and since I am a Hello Kitty fan I researched it and found that it would sell for a good price. It was important that it came with it’s detachable pink bow.
I found this vintage board game at a school sale for $2 and fell in love with the little Hawaiian Punch mover pieces. This colorful game was complete and sold for $44.99.
Pokemon can sell well and Tamagotchi’s can sell well so combine the two and you’ve got a good item. This is a Pokemon Pikachu Tamagatchi. It was new in the package however, I crushed the package under another item that I bought at the same sale and cut the value of this item in half. Good going me! It still sold for $49.99.
I love to find vintage Fisher Price. This is the hospital set that came with some of the Little People and accessories. It was picked up at a church sale for $5. I was very surprised to find it because it was about 2 hours after the sale had begun and I expected all the good items to be gone. It sold for $49.99.
Shaker Maker is a toy from my childhood, in the 1960’s. I found this set at an estate sale, nearly complete and it even came with the powder solution. I picked it up for $3 and it sold for $59.99.
I keep waiting for the Littlest Pet Shop resale bubble to burst but it hasn’t happened yet. This lot was $5 at a library sale, it included 39 pets and sold for $59.99.
Also in the plush category, I found this Brer Fox Folkmanis puppet at a very expensive tag sale where they had researched everything and priced it all at Ebay prices. Except for the puppets. I bought this one for $5 and it sold for 64.99.
Many years ago I picked up a vintage Park and Shop board game that was incomplete and in very bad condition but what I learned at the time was that, in good condition, these games sell well. This summer I found this one in beautiful condition and complete and it sold for $72.99.
The new King Kong movie had just come out when I found this guy. He was very detailed and I felt like he was good quality. He was also quite large and heavy. I paid $4 for him and a church sale and sold him for $74.99. He looks so happy to have been sold for that much!
I knew that these oversized Tinkertoys were valuable but I didn’t think I wanted to deal with the shipping headache. I saw these at a tag sale and when the guy said they were only $5 I was like “bring on the shipping headache!” I shipped them in their original box and they sold for $89.99.
Those are my top ten toy and game sales for 2017!
