Alice in Wonderland Toy Chest

It’s one thing to pay several thousand dollars for something you can actually play with, but there’s something a little perverse about spending nearly $3,000 on what’s basically a box to hold your toys.


L'Oiseleur Doll

If you’re looking for the absolute most expensive doll in the world, look no farther, because L’Oiseleur is an old, creepy looking thing that, astonishingly, goes for well over six million dollars in auction these days.


Original G.I. Joe Action Figure

Arguably the most famous toy line for boys in history, GI Joe started out pretty much as a Ken doll who happened to be wearing Army clothes, and now that original action figure goes for more than $200,000.


Lionel 3360 Burro Crane

It seems like the toys that cost the most these days are often the ones kids would never think twice about actually playing with, as is the case with the Lionel 3360 Burro Crane prototype that goes for more than $85,000 these days.


Babe Ruth Action Figure

This one is extremely expensive because it’s so absurdly rare, as only five figures were produced with the Sultan of Swat wearing a blue hat, and that’s why, if you happen to have one, you can expect to get nearly $14,000 for it.


Miami Vice Slot-Car Set

There was a time when Miami Vice was the coolest thing around, and a big part of that was the cool cars – which is probably why, if you have a classic Miami Vice slot-car set that’s still in great shape, you could sell it for around $1,500.


First Edition He-Man Figure

You knew we couldn’t make it through this without Boba Fett, and a mint condition, still in the box version of everyone’s favorite (and extremely overrated) bounty hunter goes for about $2,500.


Stefano Canturi Barbie Doll

Just like we couldn’t go without GI Joe or Star Wars toys, it’s a little crazy to go through a list like this without Barbie, and the Stefano Canturi Barbie goes for a staggering $300,000 thanks largely to the very real diamonds she wears.


Steiff Louis Vuitton Bear

A Teddy Bear is supposed to be something a kid just cuddles with at night, but frankly, if you ask us, paying more than two million dollars for some late night, snuggly comfort just seems ridiculous.
