Vintage Toys at Christmas

Who remembers the classic toys such as, Barbie, G.I Joe and Camelot? If you do, sadly these vintage toys could be collecting dust in the attic, getting broken with all the pressure of years and years of storage boxes piling up on them. Maybe it’s best for you to keep them safe and secure in Self-Storage here at Blue Box Storage Doncaster. Maybe, sometime in the future, your Son, Daughter, Grandchildren may come across them in self-storage looking a lot better than they did stuck in the attic.

Vintage Toys: Are thet Valuable?

Vintage Toys are more than just a Childs Play thing, they’re antiques! According to Blue Box Storage, an item must be at least 20 years old to be considered vintage, while an antique is at least 100 years old, regardless to which toy is vintage or antique, our Self-Storage boxes are safe and secure.

Limited access makes it more desirable, and collectors or nostalgic buyers are willing to pay more. Condition is also a key factor. While some buyers don’t mind a little wear, you’ll get top dollar if your toy is unused and in its original box. If that’s the case, making sure the original box is always a must when storing it away.

Vintage Toys still Desirable?

If you don’t want to store the vintage/antique toys away, then the other tip would be to advertise on eBay, which was used for Pez collectors to connect, buy and sell items of interest. Still have that Action Man doll from the ‘80s? You could be a few hundred dollars richer if it’s in mint condition. Your collection of wrestling videos could be worth a ton of money; a single WWF VHS tape can fetch as much as £250. And if you spent a good portion of your millennial childhood with your nose in a Harry Potter novel, you could be in luck. If you own one of only 500 copies of the first edition, you could net five figures from the sale of your book.
