Everyone loves toys. It’s okay, you can admit it, whenever you find yourself in a department store you at least wander past the toy section and sneak a look at the latest action figures adorning the shelves. Of course, while those toys are getting pretty expensive in their own right at this point, they don’t hold a candle to some toys that are out there on the market, or even some of the toys you knew and loved as a kid when it comes to a price tag. These are some of the most absurdly expensive toys in the world, just in case you have an extra thousand laying around for some ridiculous stocking stuffers this year.
18Hot Wheels Rear Loading Beach Bomb
That’s not a giant, working van right there, that’s a pretty standard little Hot Wheels car that was made in 1969 and goes for the not-so-standard Hot Wheels price of around $100,000 at auction.
That’s a regular version of the board game Scrabble, except for the part about it being made of diamonds and being sold for tens of thousands of dollars.
16Henes Broon F-Series Luxury Kids Car
Now, you can actually get this for under $1,000, making it one of the most reasonably priced items on this list, but we have to include a kid’s toy car that includes leather seats, an MP3 player, and a detachable Android tablet.
15Nintendo Wii Supreme
Now, this is an expensive toy. The Nintendo Wii Supreme, which as you can tell from the pictures is coated in actual gold, can be yours for the low price of about $500,000.
14White Gold Pacifier
Okay, so while a pacifier isn’t technically a toy in the traditional sense, we have to include any item geared toward children that are made of white gold and retails at a little under $20,000.
13New England Lodge Playhouse
Kids love playing in little clubhouses, but you’d probably be better off just building one yourself rather than dropping more than $50,000 on this little house that has the options to add cable TV and air conditioning.
12Lamborghini Aventador 1/8 Scale Model Car
For the record, at $4.8 million, this small toy car is vastly more expensive than the real thing, thanks to it being adorned with diamonds and platinum.
11Grand Crimson Dragon
You would think that for just under $14,000 this giant “toy” dragon would be something a kid could actually play with, rather than just admiring it and using it as decoration.
10Child’s Mercedes 500 SL 2-Seater
Coming in with a price tag of $9,492, it would almost be a better idea to just find your six-year-old an actual used Mercedes and buy him that than this absurdly overpriced toy.
9Alice 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.
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.
7Original G.I. Joe Action Figure
Arguably the most famous toy line for boys in history, GI Joe started out pretty much like a Ken doll who happened to be wearing Army clothes, and now that original action figure goes for more than $200,000.
6Lionel 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.
5Babe 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.
4Miami 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.
3First 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.
2Stefano 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.
1Steiff 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.
