What’s the most expensive toy you can think of (and where not talking about things like these 25 most expensive yachts ever built). Is it a computer game? How about a game console? Maybe a special collector’s item of some sort? In today’s age, toys come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and sometimes the price tags on these recreational items can be quite alarming. Take a PlayStation 4 for example. This popular game console will cost you around 400 dollars, and lets not even talk about the games. Though this price tag may indeed be a bit alarming, it’s nothing compared to the price tag the toys on our list carry. From a toy soldier worth $200,000 to a dollhouse worth $8.5 million (that’s right, millions), here are 25 Most Expensive Toys You Won’t Believe Are Real.
Whac-a-mole Game, price: $35,000
Another fancy toy by the Hammacher Schlemmer, this Whac-a-mole gaming machine was highly customized, offering remote-controlled doors and shelves for your favorite liqueurs. Weighing 286 pounds (130 kg), the machine is equipped with built-in speakers that provide authentic sound effects.
Pink Rear-Loading Volkswagen Beach Bomb, price: $72,000
This specific Hot Wheels car was discontinued because it wouldn’t work on the Mattel-made race tracks. The odd design of the toy, having a surfboard hanging from the back, made it especially desirable for collectors. So far, only two pink copies of this particular model have been found and the owner of one of them is believed to have paid $72,000 for it.
Platinum Pacifier, price: $85,000
Jeweler Matt Case crafted this pacifier worth $85,000 for bespoke jewelers Russell & Case in February 2013. Created specifically for the UK Baby and Toddler Show at the BT Convention center, the pacifier is made of pure platinum and weighs 250 grams (9 oz).
Lionel 3360 Burro Crane, price: $85,000
This Lionel 3360 Burro Crane may look humble and unassuming, but it’s actually a prototype for many model cranes released in the 1950s. Kept in perfect condition, it fetched exactly $85,062.25 in an online auction, making it one of the most expensive toy items ever sold on eBay.
Porsche 917 Le Mans Raceway, price: $125,000
Fans of slot car racing would be excited to find this full-sized Porsche 917 replica hides a 1:32-scale wooden slot car track in it. The car track is a reproduction of the world’s oldest active sports raceway, the iconic Le Mans track in France. If you have a spare 125,000 dollars, this thing can be yours.
