Everyone has a box (of ten) of old toys, gadgets, games, and more that are collecting dust. While most people are keeping them for nostalgic and sentimental reasons, some of these vintage items can actually be worth a whole lot of money. It’s worth checking if you’ve got one of these items and see if they’ve increased in value over the years.
The Game Boy first came out in 1989 and became an instant hit all around the world, with kids begging their parents to buy these hand held video game devices. Now you’ll be hard pressed to find them at a store but they can be found on eBay for prices ranging from $750 to even $4000!
