Who doesn’t love playing around with toys? It’s a worldwide thing for kids to do, and while some toys are of the moment or sentimental, some toys can be extravagant. In fact, some toys can be the price of Los Angeles mansions. Yep, you read that right.
Obviously, many of these aren’t really designed to be played with, but here are 25 of the most expensive toys in the world. Let’s dive in!
Original Furby, worth $900
Okay, so the majority of us remember the original Furby craze. The Furby language, the giant eyes, the different colors so you could pick your favorite. Honestly, they were everywhere. We know that vintage toys like Beanie Babies can go for a lot at auctions, but an original Furby can go for around $900 – not bad for a niche toy from the 90s.
Ride-on Plush Giraffe, price: $1,879
Now, having a giant plushy of a giraffe sounds like a lot of kid’s dream toys, but at this price point, it’s not the most accessible toy in the world. This ride-on giraffe can support up to 150lbs which can support some adults, so it’s ideal for children. However, this is a painstakingly hand-crafted item that costs almost $2k so maybe try and keep it nice and safe!
American Girl: Molly Doll, Worth $5,000
A lot of the American Girl dolls have special editions that make them worth a ton of money. This slightly-nerdy American Girl doll is pretty valuable if you have all the original clothes and accessories, and has gone for five thousand dollars on the open market.
1978 Telescopic Light Saber Darth Vader, price: $6,000
A lot of Star Wars merchandise has gone on to make a whole ton of money, but this 1978 mini Darth Vader figurine had a limited edition extending lightsaber. At the time, this wasn’t super popular and was priced at around $2.49. It was discontinued pretty soon after it was launched so there were only a few hundred of these in existence. As they’re so rare, these couple of dollar figures are now worth $6,000
First Edition of the Sorcerer’s Stone, worth $6,500
First-edition books are always a good place to start if you’re trying to find expensive toys and children’s items. With the popularity of the first Harry Potter book, it’s no wonder that first editions of the Sorcerer’s Stone (or Philosopher’s Stone in UK editions) go for over six million dollars.
Babe Ruth Figure, price: $13,600
It’s no secret that baseball items like collectible cards are now worth a small fortune. With Babe Ruth being an absolute icon of the game, it’s no wonder that a handmade, limited-run figurine was sold on eBay for over 13 million dollars. It was sold by the creator who only made five figures, two of which he’s hung onto. The reason for the high amount? A unique blue hat instead of a black one – that’s it!
Nintendo Stadium Events Cartridge, worth $23,000
Conventions and events have been popular for a long time on the video game circuit, so if you have limited edition merchandise that was developed exclusively for one of these events, like this Nintendo Stadium Events Cartridge, you could be swimming in cash.
Gold Nintendo Gameboy, price: $25,000
Gameboys were everywhere around 20 years ago. With so many games and cartridges, it was the perfect handheld console. Naturally, to make it more appealing to the 1%, they covered it in gold and sold it for 25 grand.
Black Lotus, Magic the Gathering Card, worth $27,000
Much like Pokemon and baseball cards, Magic the Gathering Cards can be seriously valuable. Again, this is to do with the rarity, with some rare cards that are signed by the artist being worth as much as a car.
Platinum Pacifier, price: $85,000
What says opulent wealth like a luxury pacifier? You might be born with a silver spoon in your mouth, but in reality, that looks like a platinum pacifier!
Lionel 3360 Burro Crane, price: $85,000
Who’d have thought a toy crane could cost $85,000? Well, considering it was in immaculate condition and was made in the 1950s, eBay buyers thought it was well worth the price tag. This unique edition was actually the prototype for many model cranes that followed. Yep, I didn’t know that was a thing either
Porsche 917 Le Mans Raceway, price: $125,000
Have you ever seen an automatic raceway toy? Set it up and race against your friends in a tabletop Mario Kart situation. To take it to that next, luxurious level, why not get a version that emulates one of the most popular races on the planet, Le Mans, with one of the finest car brands on the planet, Porsche? It’s a recipe for opulence.
Wheels Diamond Car, price: $140,000
What is it with people taking fairly affordable and popular toys and chucking a load of diamonds on it? Well, that’s exactly what happened with this special edition Hot Wheels car that’s been sold for $140k. Insanity
Pikachu Illustrator Card, price: $150,000
Gi-Joe First Prototype, Worth $200,000
Barbie by Stefano Canturi, price: $302,500
Over the years, there has been a lot of special edition Barbie dolls, all with varying price tags, but none have been as expensive as the 2010 Stefano Canturi Barbie. Canturi, a jewelry designer from Australia, adorned her Barbie with a genuine diamond choker. Not sure if that’s safe for kids to play with, but my God, it looks amazing!
Gold Rocking Horse, price: $600,000
A classic children’s toy is the rocking horse, but a standard rocking horse isn’t going to be enough for the families of the rich and famous. The standard way too bougie up a toy? Add gold to it. That’s exactly what they did with this golden rocking horse that costs over half a million dollars. Doesn’t look like the most comfortable rocking horse in the world though…
Kuratas Wearable Robot Suit, price: $1 million
What kid wouldn’t want to wear a real-life robot suit? Hell, I’m an adult and I want to wear a robot suit. Unfortunately, I do not have a million dollars just lying around waiting for me to buy a new toy…
The Masterpiece Cube Rubik’s Cube. price: $1.5 million
Since its creation way back when the Rubik’s Cube has been a fun diversion and challenge for people of all ages. If you want to spend $1.5 million on this toy that normally retails for $3, you can opt for the Masterpiece that’s studded with rubies, emeralds, and other gemstones – and actually still works.
Golden Monopoly Game, price: $2 Million
Ah Monopoly, a game where you try and gain as much wealth as possible. So, why not show off your new-found wealth with a golden monopoly board? Yep, that’s right. You can show off how rich you are in real life while you’re building up all that fake Monopoly wealth.

Luxury supercars are a part of the lives of the rich and famous, so why not have a model one for your little kiddo? For the cool price of $4.6 million, you can bag yourself one of the most exclusive supercars in the world, a Lamborghini Aventador, only in miniature. Something
tells me that you can probably get the real thing for around the same price…
Alnwick Garden Treehouse, price: $6 million
Treehouses are a pretty common sight in a lot of suburban gardens but dropping $6 million on one seems just plain extravagant. You can get a handful of real homes for that price, let alone one that’s in a tree.
Astolat Dollhouse Castle, price: $8.5 million
Many young children dream of a dollhouse to play with, but this Astolat Dollhouse Castle is something else. The painstaking work of master goldsmiths, glassblowers, craftsmen, and other experts, it’s the creme de la creme of dollhouses and it’s the most expensive one in the
