The World’s Most Expensive Toys

Sloane | February 28, 2014

Remember when you were little and it was important to have the best and newest toy on the market? If you didn’t have a Tamagotchi, a Skip-It, or a Pet Rock you were branded unfit for pre-teen society. Over the last few years kids’ toys have gotten a little bit more advanced. Now, instead of having a $30 Slip’N Slide, kids ask for iPhones and iPads. That’s not even the most expensive toy a kid could ask for. The following toys are the most expensive items you can buy for a youngster: 

Barbie: $302,500

A life-size Lamborghini Aventador costs $380,000 which is cheap compared to its toy size companion. The scale model that is 1/8 the size of the regular car is a $4.8 million piece of work featuring gold and platinum rims, and diamonds in the steering wheel, seat, and headlights. No word on whether or not the impressive toy has a tape deck or Bluetooth capabilities.


Dollhouse: $256,500

To celebrate the Teddy Bear’s 125th birthday, German toy company Steiff (inventor of the Teddy Bear) created these limited edition bears. The 41 bears have mouths made out of gold and eyes made out of sapphire and put Paddington Bear to shame. The most expensive of these bears sold at auction in 2010 for $195,500.
