Toys are meant to be played with. But sometimes a toy turns into a collectible for whatever reason, and you begin to wonder if your toy is worth anything substantial.
Wondering what your toys are worth? The answer can vary depending on a lot of things, but here are our suggestions to help figure out what, if anything, your toys are worth–
Check Recent Sales On eBay
Valuing any sort of collectible is very difficult. At the end of the day, your toy is worth what someone is willing to pay for it. The best way to begin valuing your toys is to see how much similar ones sold for on eBay using their advanced search feature and only viewing completed listings.
Analyze The Condition Of Your Toy
Once you’ve found similar toys that sold on eBay, you have a good baseline to work with. The next big variable in determining how much your toys are worth is their condition. Compare the condition your toys are in with the completed listings you found on eBay. If yours are in better condition, adjust up a bit. If yours are in worse condition, adjust down a bit. How much to adjust will depend on the differences in condition as well as the rarity of the item.
Speak To A Professional
Even following these steps, valuing your toy is more of an art than a science. With that being said, if you’re dealing with anything of significant value, it’s always best to consult a professional and get a proper appraisal done prior to listing your toys for sale or entertaining any offers.
